How to use this template:

You can include this template dynamically in an article by typing {{FOKO|1|2}}. This picks up also your headline (place name), which thus you will not need to repeat.

  1. parameter 1 must be replaced by the GOV-ID
  2. parameter 2 must be replaced by the place name

For an example (based on Haaren), the result will look like this:


If you do not know the GOV-ID, leave out parameter 1 (i.e., place two || after FOKO; the result will look like this:


(The FOKO team can then see to the provision or establishment of a GOV-ID).

Some special German letters must by replaced by symbol chains as follows:

letter    Symbol to insert 
Ä       =    %C4         
Ö       =    %D6         
Ü       =    %DC         
ß       =    %DF
ä       =    %E4
ö       =    %F6
ü       =    %FC
(blank) =    %20

For Mönchengladbach the result should look like this: {{FOKO|adm_135116|M%F6nchengladbach}}
