Templates are little snippets between double accolades what you can insert while editing the Wiki. They will be automatically replaced to the template's content, for example a large blue box with predefined text, when viewing the page.

The following templates are used for documentation. Click on template names to link to their page for more information. You can copy-paste the examples directly from this page into your article

Templates are wiki pages that start with the string "Template:". They are in a separate namespace separate from the main wiki pages, so they do not appear in search results by default. There is a "Template" category, for now unsubdivided. You can see all available templates here.


Templates for editor notes on pages

These templates are temporary. They are meant to be removed when the requested edit has been performed. So we give them the yellow "Post-it note" background.

Template:Citation needed

When a Citation needed

to confirm a statement:
{{Citation needed}}


To propose a page for speedy deletion.

Proposed for deletion: This page is proposed for deletion. Please see Wiki Issues#Pages proposed for deletion to discuss this proposal.

When you do a large cleanup on a page for some days:

If this note persists without edits in the history, feel free to remove the Editing template from the page.

Navigation boxes

Navigation boxes provide inter-pages links to related subjects. There can be also "See also" and "References" sections at the end of the page. How to best this implement interpage contextual navigation is still under discussion. Trial and error !

Current issues:

  • Standardize colors: Background: orange/black, white, CSS-defined.
  • Standardize width and position. We must try wide and at the bottom of the page
  • Get rid of aliases and redirects.
  • Rename consistently, i.e. Template:navbox ***
