There are many templates in use in World of Warcraft Answers; 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. 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.

General wiki templates Edit

Right-aligned Table of Contents Edit

{{tocright}}

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


T is for template Edit

{{t|<template>}}

  • 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.

S is for substitute Edit

{{s|<template>}}

  • This template allows you to show example template code (with a link to the templates) without using the template itself, but with subst: preceding the template name.
  • For example, {{Welcome-message-anon}} should usually be used on a page as {{subst:Welcome-message-anon}}.

Welcome Edit

{{Welcome-message-anon}} and {{Welcome-message-user}}

  • The first 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 with more detailed information on how to help and get help.
  • 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

{{wikipedia}}

  • Wikipedia-related templates. Use {{wikipedia}} for articles taken directly from Wikipedia.
