Revision as of 23:08, December 3, 2012

There are many, many templates in use in WoWWiki 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.

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

Tip of the day: Want to use a template for things, but don't know how they work or what they do? See WoWWiki:Templates.     [ View all ]

Article management tags

See also: Category:Article management tags

Accuracy

  • {{accuracy}} displays a banner requesting a fact check

Better name / Conjecture

  • {{bettername}} displays a banner flagging the article as probably needing a new name

Citations needed

Cleanup

{{Cleanup|<reasons>}}

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

Please try and add reasons - this will help editors to change what is wrong or add what is not there without having to ask the user who tagged the page.

Alliance info needed

{{Alliance update|<reasons>}}

This is a specific type of cleanup request similar to a stub notification, but specifically requesting Alliance-perspective info updates.

Horde info needed

{{Horde update|<reasons>}}

This is a specific type of cleanup request similar to a stub notification, but specifically requesting Horde-perspective info updates.

Construction

Deletion templates

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

Disputed

GM Item

  • {{GM-item}} displays a banner noting this item is most likely for GMs only

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 (Category:Move candidates), 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.

Outdated

  • {{Outdated|<optional_reason>}} or the shorthand, {{ood}} (also usable on images)
  • {{Outdated-section|<optional_reason>}} for only specific sections. Keep the reason short, if you can.
  • Icon-time This section concerns content that is out-of-date.

    Removed

    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.

    Talk pages

    {{Talkheader|analysis=on}} (from {{Talkheader}})

    This template can be added to an article's talk page where discussion about the issue in general is overwhelming editorial concerns regarding the article in particular. See WoWWiki:Talk page guidelines for more info.

    Unused

    Use this on unused files (image, PDF, sound, video, etc.).

    Wikify

    General wiki templates

    See also: Category:General wiki templates

    Icons

    Note that all these icons appear to the left of the text left edge. Use them only in indented sections (e.g. after a ":").

    Icon-information-22x22{{icon-information}}
    Icon-warning-22x22{{icon-exclamation}}
    Icon-lightbulb{{icon-lightbulb}}
    Icon-shortcut{{icon-shortcut}}

    Category helpers

    • Use {{Server_US|<realm type>|<timezone>|<server>}} to easily categorize US servers. (timezone = Eastern, Central, Pacific, etc....) (server = article name minus Server:, helps alphabetize categories)
    • Use {{Server_EU|<realm type>|<language>|<server>}} to easily categorize EU servers. (language = English, French, German, etc....) (server = article name minus Server:, helps alphabetize categories)
    • Use {{Guild|<name>|<realm>|<loc>|<type>}} to easily categorize guilds.
    • Use {{correct2category|<article type>|<good-category>}} at the top of category pages that shouldn't be used to tell people what category they should be using.
    • Use {{bigcat}} at the bottom of very large (nearly or over 200 articles) categories:
    • Note that {{catredirect|destination category}} is no longer required as of the MediaWiki 1.7 upgrade. You can now use regular #redirect [[:Category:destination category]] redirects. Old/deprecated categories should never be redirected per the category policy.

    Clear below break before starting

    • You can use {{clear}} instead of the HTML tag that clears space below things like images, pictures and tables, so stuff doesn't begin until the bottom of the image, picture or table box.
    • You can also use {{clear|<left>}} or {{clear|<right>}} to clear only left or right floats

    Line spacing

    • {{spc}} adds a moderate space between two paragraphs, or between items in a bullet list. The spacing is about 75% of a regular line height.

    Columns

    To easily put content in columns, use {{col-begin}}, {{col-2}}/{{col-3}}/{{col-4}}/{{col-5}}/{{col-6}}/{{col-7}}, and {{col-end}}.

    For example
    {{col-begin}}
    {{col-3}}
    First column
    {{col-3}}
    Second
    {{col-3}}
    Third
    {{col-end}}
    
    Yields

    First column

    Second

    Third

    Disambiguation

    • Use {{disambig}}, if a page has a chance of being confused with a page of a similar name but different content, a disambiguation page may be in order. See that page for more info on creating one and linking to it.
    • However, sometimes a disabiguation page is not appropriate, but a short note at the top may still be necessary. {{for}} can be useful for this situation.
    {{for|the original 40-man raid introduced in [[Patch 1.11]]|Naxxramas (original)}}
    
    For the original 40-man raid introduced in Patch 1.11, see Naxxramas (original).

    Tables of Contents

    Though discouraged (see WoWWiki:Manual of Style), you can float the table of contents of a page to the right with {{tocright}}

    Tabs

    If you want to make a nice looking tab to clearly indicate what to click, like discussion, you can use the following:

    Template links

    Make example template code for templates with a link to them:

    • Wikitext: Simple template (i.e. {{t|template}})
    • Output: Simple template (i.e. {{template}})

    Make example template code for templates (un-italicized parameters) with a link to them:

    • Wikitext: Simple template with 1 parameter (i.e. <code>{{t2|template|param1}}</code>)
    • Output: Simple template with 1 parameter (i.e. {{template|param1}})

    See also

    Add references to other articles using {{seealso}}. For example, to add two references to a page, use {{seealso|Health regeneration|Mana regeneration}}:

    See also: Health regenerationMana regeneration

    For consistency, it's recommended that you add a section at the bottom titled "See also"

    Example, Example/Begin, Example/End

    {{Example|<small text>}} can be used for very small examples, but often you will want to pull in substantial pieces of other pages or templates, in which case you can use {{Example/Begin}} LOTS of text, probably multiline {{Example/End}}:

    LOTS of text, probably multiline

    Page actions

    • {{edit|<pagename>}} can be used to create a link for editing a page, e.g. {{edit|WoWWiki:Templates}} creates [edit].

    Usage: {{power|Axe Toss|Axe Toss, the Felguard ability}}
    Displays: [Axe Toss, the Felguard ability]

    Money

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

    • 123Gold67Copper {{cost|<123>|<>|<67>}}
    • 25Gold 50Silver {{cost|<g=25>|<s=50>}}

    • 10Gold 48Silver 32Copper{{cost|<g=10>|<s=48>|<c=32>}}

    The {{cost}} template also supports many, many other non-money, non-coin currencies. See the template documentation for details.

    Battle pets

    Mists-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Mists of Pandaria.

    Most databases mix battle pets among the NPCs, but you can use this template for external links instead of {{Elinks-NPC}}.

    External links

    Usage: {{elinks-battlepet|61325}}

    • {{costitem|1|Alterac Valley Mark of Honor}}: 1 Inv jewelry necklace 21
    • {{costitem|100|Dalaran Cooking Award}}: 100 Inv misc ribbon 01
    • {{costitem|1|Breastplate of the Wayward Conqueror}}: 1 Inv chest chain 03

    {{Elink-guild|MyGuild|MyServer|EU}}

    Icon-bnetwoweu-22x22 Battle.net: MyGuild @ MyServer (EU)
    Icon-bnetwowus-22x22 Battle.net: MyGuild @ MyServer (US)
    Icon-bnetwoweu-22x22 Battle.net: MyGuild @ MyServer (EU)

    Quests

    There are two ways to link to quest articles. There is the normal way, because sometimes you just need to mention the quest, which makes use of the template {{quest}}, that automatically drops the "Quest:" from the name (used for cleaner code):

    {{quest|Holy Bologna: What the Light Won't Tell You}} as opposed to [[Quest:Holy Bologna: What the Light Won't Tell You|Holy Bologna: What the Light Won't Tell You]]

    The second way is more detailed, and is usually used in bulleted lists.

    {{questlong|<faction>|<questlevel>|<questname>|<displayname>}}

    Usage: {{questlong|Neutral|54|Holy Bologna: What the Light Won't Tell You}}
    Displays: Neutral 15 [54] Holy Bologna: What the Light Won't Tell You

    External links
    {{elinks-quest|<id>}}

    Usage: {{elinks-quest|7504}}

    Displays:


    Quest change

    If you see a small part of a quest article, a section of a quest article, or a small part or section of an article involved with a quest that you want to mark as significantly changed you can use the following templates (inline and section).

    {{Questch-inline}}
    Displays: Quest Avail 16x16Icon-move-22x22

    {{Questch-section}}

    Displays:
    Quest Avail 16x16Icon-move-22x22 Note: These quests are no longer associated with this particular mob/NPC/item.

    Quality Colors

    The following templates change the color of the links. In case there is such a concern, note that each link, when moused over, has the underline in the typical link color. For instance, if a link does not exist, the underline is red; if it does exist, the underline is blue.

    NOTE: Color for Artifact items used to be red and is currently undecided by Blizzard as there are no items of this type in-game yet, however GetItemQualityColor API function currently returns 0.90196..., 0.8, 0.50196..., "|cffe6cc80" (shown in that color) for quality=6 (Artifact), which gives some idea.

    For simple quality links for use in other templates, use the following format:

    • the template name indicates the item has a quality
    • the first argument is the quality of a given item
    • the second argument is the name of a given item's article

    Example Result
    {{Quality|<Heirloom>|<heirloom>}}heirloom
    {{Quality|<Artifact>|<artifact>}}artifact
    {{Quality|<Legendary>|<legendary>}}legendary
    {{Quality|<Epic>|<epic>}}epic
    {{Quality|<Rare>|<rare>}}rare
    {{Quality|<Uncommon>|<uncommon>}}uncommon
    {{Quality|<Common>|<common>}}common
    {{Quality|<Poor>|<poor>}}poor

    Reputation colors

    The {{reputation|<rep level>|<link page>|<alt text>}} template changes the color of text based on the reputation selected.

    Example Result
    {{reputation|exalted}}exalted
    {{reputation|revered}}revered
    {{reputation|honored}}honored
    {{reputation|friendly}}friendly
    {{reputation|neutral}}neutral
    {{reputation|unfriendly}}unfriendly
    {{reputation|hostile}}hostile
    {{reputation|hated}}hated

    You can also color custom text as well. For example: {{reputation|hated|very hated}} results in very hated.

    Colored text

    You can also easily color inline text with {{text}}. This template comes preloaded with some common colors - "emote", "say", "yell", "whisper", and "blizz" but many other colors can be supplied as well.

    For example: {{Text|whisper|An Unknown Voice whispers: Tell yourself again that these are not truly your friends.}} results in

    An Unknown Voice whispers: Tell yourself again that these are not truly your friends.

    Item links

    To create an item link within an article, use the {{item}} template, passing it the name of the item's page on WoWWiki. If desired, you can also ask {{item}} to add the item's icon to its output by adding |icon= to the tooltip code.

    Example Result
    {{item|Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (warlock)}} [Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian]
    {{item|Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (warlock)|Warlock's Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian}} [Warlock's Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian]
    {{item|Azuresong Mageblade|icon=}} Inv sword 39 [Azuresong Mageblade]
    {{item|Heirloom with no page}} Heirloom with no page

    Loot

    A bit more complicated to use (you have to supply the quality), the {{loot}} doesn't work the wiki engine as hard, still supplies tooltips, and works better for items without pages yet ({{item}} pulls quality info from the {{tooltip}} on the page).

    Example Result
    {{loot|legendary|Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (warlock)}} [Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (warlock)]
    {{loot|legendary|Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian (warlock)|Warlock's Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian}} [Warlock's Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian]
    {{loot|epic|Azuresong Mageblade}} [Azuresong Mageblade]
    {{loot|heirloom|Heirloom with no page}} [Heirloom with no page]

    Glyph

    The {{glyph}} template is a derivative of {{loot}} that checks for "glyph of" and doesn't require a quality.

    Example Result
    {{glyph|Glyph of Unending Breath}} [Glyph of Unending Breath]
    {{glyph|Not a glyph}} This doesn't appear to be a glyph

    Object links

    The tooltip only works for this type of link, if the object page has a {{tooltip}} template used on it like a regular item. An |id= should be added for objects that have no corresponding page, but links should have the |id= removed when the page exists.

    Example Result
    {{object|Tattered Chest}} [Tattered Chest]
    {{object|Tattered Chest|s}} [Tattered Chests]
    {{object|Tattered Chest|id=2844}} [Tattered Chest]ω τ ϖ
    {{object|Imaginary Chest|id=2844}} [Imaginary Chest]ω τ ϖ
    {{object|Imaginary Chest}} [Imaginary Chest]

    Ability Links

    To create an ability link within an article, use the {{ability}} template, passing it the name of the ability's page on WoWWiki.

    Example Result
    {{ability|Frostfire Bolt}} [Frostfire Bolt]
    {{ability|Shadowmeld}} [Shadowmeld]
