Description[edit source]

This template is used to power {{Hidden ping}}.

Usage within templates[edit source]

{{#invoke:Hidden ping|hiddenping|max=maximum number of names}}

  • The |max= parameter sets the maximum number of names that the template will accept. If not specified, it defaults to 50 (which is the maximum number that Echo currently supports Template:As of). If this number of names is exceeded, the parent template will return an error message when previewed.
