Template-info.png Template documentation

This template is used to convert a Pillars of Eternity item/weapon/armor/shield type string to a link to the associated article, with the input as the link label. This was done to reduce clutter, unify this process, and avoid code duplication across templates that might already do this.

In addition to item type, it also handles item categories.

An equivalent template exists for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire item types: Template:Item type poe2.


  • The input parameter is not case sensitive.
  • The input parameter does not accept pluralized variants.
  • The input parameter will be used as a label, and will maintain its original capitalization.
  • If an input is not provided, the template will not output anything.
  • If an input is invalid, the template will output an error. You can use iferror to check for this.
  • Using a custom link label via {{!}} is not supported, though you can provide a separate second parameter (can be empty to use the link text) to do this if you want. The second parameter will maintain the input case.
  • This template defines the variable item_type_page, though it is only used to simplify the logic for the invalid check. It is set to nothing after every use.

The following table outlines what is produced given the input.
