Templates are used to show the same information across many pages. Templates can be useful as to indicating the page requires cleanup or is a candidate for deletion. Changing a template located on its page will cause it to appear differently on other pages.

This page lists the templates that have been created thus far. You are more than welcome to create a template; however, there are a few guidelines that must be followed as shown below. For more information, check out Wikipedia's template page or Wikimedia's template page.

To insert a template onto a page, type {{TemplateName}} (known as a tag). This will cause the information located on TemplateName's page to appear in the article. The template's name is always located after the Template: in the url. For instance, the template name for Template:Construction is Construction thereby making the template format {{Construction}}

Guidelines Edit

When creating a template

  • Ask yourself, is the template useful? Will it be beneficial to the community?
  • Make sure the template includes the [[Category:CATEGORY|{{PAGENAME}}]] tag inside
  • Categorize the template page in the correct category
    • Article management templates would belong in [[Category:Article Management Templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]
  • Include graphics wherever possible
  • Use the messagebox form
  • When the template is created, replace the [[ and ]] tags with {{ and }}
    • Remember to remove Template
