Boilerplate

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

  • The Template namespace always has all templates in the wiki, unsorted
  • Category:Templates should have all templates in the wiki, categorized.

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. See Help:Template for further information on using and creating templates.

Templates are generally shown with the format required to use the template. i.e:

{{Brbox}}

Clicking the template name takes you to the template's page, where you can see what it looks like and how it is used.

Article Management Tags

Cleanup

{{Cleanup}}

Add to articles or sections that require editing attention. This will include them in Category:Articles to clean up.

External Links

{{External links}}

Add to articles or sections that have a large number of links to external sources that could be changed to link to internal BRWiki pages. This will include them in Category:Articles with external links. Note that some types of external links are desirable, such as citations to on-line articles or forum posts.

Merge

{{Merge|<target article>}}

Add to articles that should be merged into one article. This will include them in Category:Merge candidates. Further elaboration on the articles' discussion pages would be helpful, such as suggesting which name both articles should be listed under.

Move

{{Move|<target article>}}

Add to articles that should be moved to another name, in accordance with the Naming Policy. While many moves can be made immediately, if moving will be an involved process (as with a category) or there is debate as to what the article should be called, it is best to receive some feedback first.

Split

{{Split}}

Add to articles that should have sections split off into separate articles. This will include them in Category:Split candidates. Be sure to clarify on the article's discussion page which sections you think should be moved to a new article, and why.

Stubs

When a page has little or no useful information, then it is a stub. Its purpose is to inform visitors that they've arrived at a very unfinished page (as opposed to a normal wiki page which simply never gets finished), and also to automatically classify the page to make it easier for contributors to find and fill out.

  • Current stub templates

Deletion templates

{{Delete}}, {{Speedydelete}}, {{Terminate}}
etc are used as part of the article deletion process. See Delete, Terminate.

General Wiki Templates

Breadcrumbs

These templates are to be placed at the top of the page, normally, and indicate that the given page is a subpage of another.

{{breadcrumb0}}

This is mostly here for formatting consistency between the mother page and its children.

{{breadcrumb1|<mother page>}}

This indicates that it is a first-generation child of the mother page. Mother page is the name of the mother page, and should not include the namespace, as that is already assumed.

{{breadcrumb2|<grandmother page>|<mother page>}}

This indicates that it is a second-generation child. In this case, mother page includes the grandmother page's name up to (excluding) the last slash.

{{breadcrumb3|<highest page>|<next page>|<immediately higher page>}}

Breadcrumbright templates are used in the same manner, except the links appear on the right side of its containing block.

{{breadcrumbright0}}
{{breadcrumbright1|<mother page>}}
{{breadcrumbright2|<grandmother page>|<mother page>}}

Money

Multiple ways to do money exist, but only a few are practical, and here they are:

25gold 50silver

{{gs|25|50}}

35silver 10copper
{{sc|35|10}}

10gold 48silver 32copper
{{gsc|10|48|32}}

Note that there's not much use to mention copper and gold together; that is akin to mentioning the amount of change when referring to a transaction of multiples $100 or €100. It's simply not worth mentioning.

When more than one denomination is being mentioned, the following are deprecated, as they require more effort put forth than is needed. They remain because there may always be articles that link to them. Other than that, sometimes only one denomination is necessary; for these times, the following are useful:

1gold 10silver 5copper

{{g|1}}{{s|10}}{{c|5}}

10silver 15copper
{{s|10}}{{c|5}}

5 copper
{{c|5}}
