This template scans the text supplied at the Published line for any four-digit year, and converts it into a link to "category:YYYY works". The page is simultaneously included in that category. Therefore, works that have a publication date are categorized accordingly.


  1. {{Published|<text (scanned)>|<text (displayed as-is)>|<text (scanned)>|<text (as-is)>|<text (scanned)>|<text (as-is)>}}
  2. {{Published|<Year of first publication>|<Details>|no=NN|pg=PP}}
  3. {{Published|<Year of first publication>|<Details>|ed=<edition-volume name>}}

In Syntax 1, the template accepts up to six parameters, but only the odd-numbered parameters are scanned for year numbers. Even-numbered parameters are displayed as plain text. Sometimes, there are year numbers in the text that should not be converted into a category link. For these cases, break the text in smaller parts, so that these numbers will fall in a even-numbered parameter.

There are three optional parameters, "no=" for sequential number, "pg=" for page number(s) in the publication; and "ed=" for the full name of the edition or volume. The value of "ed=" must be exactly the same as the third parameter of the template {{PubDatePlace}} on the publication page linked in the {{Published}} template. Notice the lack of periods (.) in the template call; the template will supply one at the end, if either "no","pg", or "ed" are used.


{{Published|1501|in {{NoComp|Harmonice Musices Odhecaton|Ottaviano Petrucci)}}|no=A18|pg=6}}

will yield: Published: 1501 in Harmonice Musices Odhecaton, no. A18, p. 6.

{{Published|1831|in {{NoComp|The Christian Lyre|Joshua Leavitt}}|pg=104|ed=Volume 1}}

will yield: Published: 1831 in The Christian Lyre, Volume 1, p. 104.

A list of works available on CPDL can be created using the template {{PubList}} on the appropriate publication page. If there is more than one publication cited for any work, then use the template {{MultiPubList}} (which requires that citation of publications on workpages use the template {{Pub}} instead of {{Published}}).
