This template is for including medal symbols in sporting event result tables, while preserving the ability for sort.

Template series[edit source]

This group of templates show medal images while giving a table sort of 01, 02 or 03, respectively.

The second group of templates are show medal images with display text of either Gold, Silver, Bronze. These also give a table sort of 01, 02 or 03, respectively.

Usage[edit source]

Simply insert the template where you would like to see the symbol. No parameters are required.

Parameters[edit source]

The link parameter can be used to pass a link to an article to these templates.


  • {{gold1|link=article name}}

It defaults to null.

Sorting[edit source]

These templates use 01, 02 and 03 as the gold, silver, and bronze sort value, respectively. Sorting will operate numerically unless the column also contains any non-numeric text, in which case a text sort may sometimes occur (e.g. "10" is before "3").

To get the desired sort results for other values it may be necessary to use the data-sort-type="..." and data-sort-value="..." attributes. Placing a data-sort-type="number" attribute in the header cell will force a numeric sort. Adding a data-sort-value="..." attribute to a data cell will override the value.

A commonly used but now-deprecated technique is to use the {{hs}} or {{sort}} templates to specify appropriate sort keys to be inserted as hidden text in front of the displayed values. For example, {{hs|99}}DQ and {{sort|99|DQ}} both display "DQ" but sort using "99 DQ". A text sort still occurs, but the desired results can be achieved using carefully selected hidden values. Sometimes leading zeros or other tricks may be needed.

See Help:Sorting#Configuring the sorting for additional details.

Examples[edit source]

Simple case[edit source]

When all ranks are single digit numbers, the templates can be used directly in place of the ranks.

The following markup:

{| class="wikitable sortable" style="text-align:center"
! Rank !! Place
| {{Gold1}} || First
| {{Silver2}} || Second
| {{Bronze3}} || Third
| 4 || Fourth
| 5 || Fifth
| 6 || Sixth
| 7 || Seventh
| 8 || Eighth

...will display as:

Rank Place
1st, gold medalist(s) First
2nd, silver medalist(s) Second
3rd, bronze medalist(s) Third
4 Fourth
5 Fifth
6 Sixth
7 Seventh
8 Eighth
