There are many templates in use in Kencyr Wiki; these are only a subset, representing some of the most important and commonly used ones. If you feel that a template belongs on this page, do not hesitate to add it.

  • Category:Templates should cover all templates in the wiki, categorized into the various subcategories.
  • The Template namespace always has all templates in the wiki, sorted alphanumerically.

What are templates?Edit

Wiki templates provide a means to insert the same content over and over in different (or the same) pages. This saves editors the hassle of duplicating the same text again and again, and also helps ensure consistency.

Templates are generally shown with the format required to use the template (e.g. <code>{{stub}}</code>). Clicking the template name takes you to the template's page, where you can see what it looks like and how it is used.

Detailed instructions on the usage of each template should exist on either the template page itself (inside "noinclude" tags) or the template's talk page.

For more information on templates, see Help:Templates.

Citation templatesEdit

{{<Book acronym>|<Chapter number>|<Subsection number if applicable>}}

e.g. {{DotM|3}} gives Dark of the Moon, "Chapter 3: Old Friends, Old Enemies".

The three most common infoboxes are

These are only a few of several infoboxes, though, each of which has the details on it's own page.

Article management templatesEdit

Nominate an article for deletion Edit


Add this to an article to nominate it for deletion. It will add the article to Category:Candidates for deletion.

Disambiguation articles Edit


If you have several articles that have similar or identical names, you may wish to create a "disambiguation" page at the main article name, with the articles taking an extra phrase in brackets afterwards. For example:

The Prince <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
The Prince (frog)
The Prince (human)

Using {{disambig}} marks an article as a disambiguation page by adding a banner to the article and categorizing it under Category:Disambiguations. Add links to the various articles under the banner. For more information, see Help:Disambiguation.

Distinguish Edit


If you have a page, who's title may be misleading, you can use this template to make a link to the other page.

Stubs Edit


When a page has little or no useful information, then it is likely a stub. This template will include them in Category:Article stubs, and is used to list which articles need expanding. For more information, see Help:Stubs.

Category templates Edit

General category template Edit


This can be added to categories to add general categorising details. Use in cases where it may be useful to point out to users how to categorise, such as popular categories.

Template category template Edit


This should be added to any template-related categories, to list template-specific categorising details, which differ from those of normal pages.

General wiki templates Edit

Clear Edit

{{clr}}, plus {{clrl}} and {{clrr}}

This template is used to reduce the amount of non-wikicode used on pages, replacing the code <br style="clear:both;" />. Its use should generally be avoided.

You can use {{clr}} instead of the HTML tag that clears space below things like images, pictures and tables, so the following stuff doesn't begin until the bottom of the image, picture or table box.

You can also use {{clrl}} or {{clrr}} to clear only left or right floats.

Main article Edit

{{main|<main article>}}

Use at the start of a section to link to the main article on it.

Right-aligned Table of Contents Edit


This template floats the table of contents (toc) on the right. It should only be used when absolutely necessary, to keep consistent design.

Sandbox Edit


A template that should be used to head up all Project:Sandbox pages.

T is for template Edit


This template allows you to show example template code (with a link to the templates) without using the template itself. It is used extensively on this page.

Welcome Edit

{{welcIP}} and {{welcome}}

The first (with longer version "welcomeIP" for those of you who like typing more) is to welcome new non-vandalistic contributors who are "anonymous", identified only by their IP number; it encourages them to register.

The second template is for welcoming new registered users. Should be customized for the wiki, indicating the pages we most want newcomers to visit.

The above two templates are very suitable for having "subst:" prefixed, because they can be edited with additions or deletions appropriate to the apparent strengths of the person being welcomed; e.g. if the contributor has already demonstrated good wiki editing skills you could delete references to pages about "how to edit".

Wikipedia Edit


Use {{wikipedia}} for articles taken directly from Wikipedia.
