FANDOM


There are many templates in use in Fallout Fanon 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?

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. {{stub}}). 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.

Article Management Templates

Nominate An Article for Deletion

{{delete|<reason>}}

  • Add this to an article for pages that qualify for deletion.

Disambiguation Articles

{{disambig}}

  • 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 afterwords. For example:
Enforcer <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
 :: Western Brotherhood of Steel Outcast Division
The Enforcers
  • 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.

Stubs

{{stub}}

  • 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.

Category Templates

General Category Template

{{category}}

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

Template Category Template

{{templatecategory}}

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

General Wiki Templates

Cleanup

{{cleanup}}

  • Use on pages with horrible spelling, that do not qualify for deletion or stub.
  • Use this on pages needing reformatting/wikifying.

Clear

{{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.

Columns

{{columns|<number of columns>|<content>}}

  • Should be used on long lists of links
  • Can be used on long paragraphs

For

{{for|<name>|<link>}}

  • Use at the top of articles as a simple "for x see y" template.

Main Article

{{main|<main article>}}

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

Right-aligned Table of Contents

{{tocright}}

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

Sandbox

{{sandbox}}

T is for Template

{{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.

WIP

{{WIP|<author>}}

  • For use at the top of work in progress pages.
  • Add when creating a page, and leave on until the page is significant.
