buildtag

Required: The whole known buildstring, for example 6.3.9431.0.winmain_bluemp.130615-1214 or 5.1.2428.idx01.010129-1827.

version

Required: Windows version that this build belongs to, i.e. 8.1 or Server 2003.

version-link

Name of the article that covers the Windows version. Use this if "Windows version" is not an actual article.

image

File name of a screenshot without the initial File: prefix. If not provided, a placeholder will be used instead.

imagecaption

Caption to annotate image.

arch

CPU architectures on which the build is available (leaked/released).

compiled

Date of compilation. In Windows versions preceding Windows XP this should generally be the latest timestamp from a release. Since Windows XP the compilation timestamp forms the last part of a buildtag.

timebomb

This is the date when the timebomb activates, if any. In the past this used to be followed by the number of days between the compilation date and the date the timebomb goes off, however, as of 2018-12-27 this is no longer required as it is now calculated automatically by the template from the provided compiled and timebomb dates and any data following the timebomb date is now silently ignored.

emulator

List of emulators or hypervisors that the build is confirmed to work in.

winver

File name of a screenshot of winver or About dialog in older Windows versions without the initial File: prefix.

sku

List of SKUs in which the build is available (leaked/released) separated by <br> tags, preferably from low-end to high-end

key

Product key required when installing.

ba

BetaArchive database search query - this parameter should be the release GUID, if this is a specific BA release, or a string query that is as specific as possible.

rivals

Use the rivals template to link pages on TCB & BA.
