This is the {{file other}} meta-template.

This template helps other templates detect if they are on a "File:" page or some "other" type of page.

This template was previously named {{image other}}. That name redirects here so it still works, but using the old name is now deprecated.

Usage

This template usually takes two parameters, like this:

{{file other | File page text | Other pages text }}

If the template is on a file (image) page, it will return this:

Template:File other

If the template is on any other page, it will return this:

Template:File other

A typical usage case could be to make it so that a template only adds a category when on file pages. Thus not adding other pages that just show the template. Like this:

{{file other | [[Category:Some file maintenance category]] }}

Or to warn that a template should not be used on other pages:

{{file other | | This template should only be used on file (image) pages. }}

Note that in the first case above the "other" parameter was not used, and in the second example the "file" parameter was left empty.
