Wikipedia:Template messages

Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists existing templates which you may find useful. (A more comprehensive category system may be viewed at Category:Wikipedia templates.) For information on what templates are and how to use them, please see Wikipedia:Template namespace.

If you cannot find the template you need, you can request it on Wikipedia:Requested templates. For help on creating templates, see Help:Template, or contact a user who has identified themselves as an adept template coder.

To see the templates and how they are implemented, click on the bold links at the top of the cell which lists the templates of interest to you.

In order to maintain consistent design of templates there has been significant discussion about a variety of templates at Wikipedia:Template standardisation.

Article-related namespace

Please list navigational templates (as, for example, between pages relating to a specific topic) at Wikipedia:Navigational templates or at the appropriate WikiProject page. See also Wikipedia:Article series.

Wiki templates

The wiki templates are powerful tools for editing Wikipedia articles. A "wiki template" is a kind of sub-template, and the "Wikipedia Edit Language" uses the notation {{template-name}} for the sub-template reference.

Technical note: "Wiki template references" are embedded on the "Wikipedia Edit Language", as a web template embedded language, using the open {{ and close }} hooks, for enclose the wiki template language syntax, where valid names and valid instructions can be used, like template reference, as {{disambig}}, and conditions, as {{#if:{{{variable_foo|}}} | foo yes |foo is blank }}.
