The value will be passed to the template in a parameter called {{{userparam}}}, if I recall correctly (I now I use that somewhere on my site, but can't seem to find it atm).

Best regards

Subject: [SMW-devel] How to use "userparam" in template calls?

Hey,
On help page http://semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Template_format it's mentioned:
     Parameter "userparam" - Type "text" - default "empty" - description "A value passed into each template call, if a template is used "
Unfortunately there is no example of its usage in the SMW documentation (as far as I've seen).

Can a developer check the code and explain to me how to use userparam? Noone on the user list seems to know, and while I find the string "userparam" in queryprinters SMW_QP_Category.php and SMW_QP_List.php  (and in languages/SMW_Messages.php) I cannot read the code :-(

I have tried to use it as shown below, but I get results that do not include any userparam provided.

I tried creating Template:Test that simply prints {{{1|empty}}} {{{2|empty}}} {{{3|empty}}}, and then called it like this
   {{#ask: <selection>|format=template|template=test|link=none|userparam=bla}}
The result looks something like
   <pagename1> empty empty
   <pagename2> empty empty
while I would expect (or hope) to see
   <pagename1> bla empty
   <pagename2> bla empty
or maybe
   bla <pagename1> empty
   bla <pagename2> empty
in other words: the string provided in userparam doesn't show up in the template.
Thanks,
