There are template usage that renders as Template:I instead of the template usage, e.g.

enter image description here

When we look at the edits and preview, it renders correctly:

enter image description here

It looks like the page is labelled with the category Pages where template include size is exceeded.

How to resolve this and render it correctly?

This can be resolved by replacing the template usage with [[internal_link]], e.g. before:

{{l|cmn|掩饰|tr={{l|cmn|掩飾}}, yǎnshì}}


* [[掩饰]] ([[掩飾]], yǎnshì)
  • This answer kind of suggests that the template is useless, what is the purpose of the template and why can it be discarded?

  • There's a limit on the no. of templates a page can show in wikipedia. So to overcome the limitation, replacing the templates with internal links would work once the page hits the limit =)

  • That doesn't answer my question, what is the purpose of the template and why is it not needed?
