Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible) [view] [edit] [history] [purge/refresh]



This template will add the appropriate ordinal indicator  wp to a given integer.

Use {{Ordinal|'integer'|sup=yes}} to display the ordinal suffix in superscript.

For an integer ending in 1, 2 or 3 (except for integers ending in 11, 12 or 13), the ordinal suffix will be -st, -nd and -rd, respectively. To display -d for the ordinal suffix rather than -nd and -rd, use {{Ordinal|'integer'|d}}.

This template should not be used in running prose in articles;  it is intended for automated script processing of numeric data. Writing something like "in the {{ordinal|16}} century" serves no purpose, and just makes the wikicode harder to understand and edit.


Code Result
{{Ordinal|101}} 101st
{{Ordinal|-102}} -102th
{{Ordinal|102}} 102nd
{{Ordinal|103}} 103rd
{{Ordinal|103|d}} 103rd
