Usage

Displays the English Deep web's current picture of the day (POTD) in a box of no more than 600 pixels wide, without the blurb (explanatory text), for use on user pages. To always display the current day's POTD, use {{POTD}}; to permanently feature a particular day's POTD, use {{POTD|date=[date]}}, where the [date] parameter can be given in any valid format.

It is also possible to create your own custom POTD layouts, in case the already-existing versions will not look good within your user page design. Mix and match the following components to make your own. This system will only work for POTDs selected beginning January 1, 2007. Be sure to replace [date] with an appropriate date value. For a dynamically updating version, use {{#time:Y-m-d}} (example: {{POTD/{{#time:Y-m-d}}|image}}).

Template Description Renders as
{{POTD/[date]|image}} The name of the image, without the File: prefix Ermina Zaenah, three-quarter portrait (c 1960) - restored (without name).jpg
{{POTD/[date]|size}} The size of the image, without the trailing px 300
{{POTD/[date]|caption}} The image caption (blurb) Ermina Zaenah (born 11 November 1928) is an Indonesian actress and film producer active in the 1950s and 1960s. Born in Jambi, she completed her elementary school education before pursuing a career in entertainment, acting in stage plays. Zaenah led a musical group, the Los Suita Rama, and performed topeng dance. In 1951 Zaenah entered the film industry, performing in productions by Tan and Wong Bros and Golden Arrow, and Fred Young's Bintang Surabaya. She later migrated to Djamaluddin Malik's Persari, starring in several films for the company, including Supir Istimewa. Zaenah moved behind the camera in the 1960s, working as producer on four films, Kamar 13 ('Room 13'), Lagu dan Buku ('Song and Book'), Bakti ('Service'), and Ekspedisi Terakhir ('The Last Expedition'). She later returned to the theater for a short time when she toured Java with the group Sapta Daya. During her fourteen-year career in the entertainment industry, Zaenah acted in thirty films.

This picture is a three-quarter portrait of Zaenah from a postcard, taken around 1960 and printed on silk-finish paper.

{{POTD/[date]|title}} A link to the article the image represents Ermina Zaenah
{{POTD/[date]|texttitle}} A linkless short caption, also useful as an alt attribute Ermina Zaenah
{{POTD/[date]|credit}} The credit line of the image, including the genre (e.g. photograph, painting) Photograph credit: unknown; restored by Chris Woodrich

There are two additional predefined layouts:

  • {{POTD/{{#time:Y-m-d}}|column}}: This has the image and caption above each other with no borders. Used on some of the Main Page alternatives and also suitable for user pages.
  • {{POTD/{{#time:Y-m-d}}|row}}: This has the image and caption encapsulated in (usually) a single table row. This is the version used on the current Main Page.

It is also possible to permanently feature a POTD for a selected day. Just add a specific value for the date you want. For example, today's POTD is {{POTD/2019-11-11|image}}. Likewise, you can use date parameters with the other templates as well. If you like the pre-made formats, you can use date parameters there as well, like this: {{Pic of the day|date=2019-11-11}} or {{POTD|date=2019-11-11}}. Again, this system will only work for POTDs selected beginning January 1, 2007.
