{{tlg}} (abbreviating "[t]emplate [l]ink (with) [g]eneral (options)") is a generalised version of the {{tl}} ("template link") template. It can be used to replace or implement {{tl}} and related templates such as {{tlb}}, {{tlx}}, etc.

With the exception of alttext, {{tlg}}'s named parameters are toggles that are either omitted (default) or activated (by being assigned a value such as "on", "yes", "true", "include", etc.). They may be included in any order (see Examples below):

Note
On the source sister projects, en.wikipedia and Meta, X0, X1, X2, …, X9 are sandbox templates for experimentation on involved templates that need be in template space. An auto-cleansing software facility exists that might be used to duplicate the facility on other Sister projects.
