FANDOM


There are many templates in use in JROTC Wiki and these are only 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 list all templates in the wiki, categorized into the various subcategories.
  • The Template namespace always has all templates in the wiki, unsorted.

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 (i.e. {{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 either on the template page, or the template's talk page.

Article management templates Edit

Lack of sources Edit

{{Nosources}}

  • Use this to mark a section or article that should contain verifiable sources but does not.

Articles needing more information Edit

{{Need expanding}}

  • Add this to an article that needs more information, not necessarily a stub, but needs more information to better cover the subject

More Time Edit

{{Moretime}}

  • This template is used for articles still being created, and request that the page not be cited a stub or a candidate for speedy deletion until the author(s) has been given a fair time to complete updates.

Nominate an article for deletion Edit

{{delete}}

Nominate a vandalized article for deletion Edit

{{Delete(Vandalism)}}

Failure to meet quality Edit

{{Quality}}

Disambiguation articles Edit

{{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 afterwards. For example:
The Prince <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
The Prince (frog)
The Prince (human)

Stubbing Edit

{{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 Edit

General category template Edit

{{category}}

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

Template category template Edit

{{templatecategory}}

  • This should be added to any template-related categories, to list template-specific categorising details (these are different to those of normal pages).

Article Class templates Edit

Rank Articles based on quality

Ranks fall into these categories Article Class templates

{{Infobox Military Person}}

  • About JROTC units

Succession BoxEdit

{{Succession Box}}

  • Succession box that shows previous and succeeding holders of command positions.

Clear Edit

{{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.

For Edit

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

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

Main article Edit

{{main|<main article>}}

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

Sandbox Edit

{{sandbox}}

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.

Welcome Edit

{{welcome}}

  • A template to welcome new users with. Should be customized for the wiki.

Wikipedia Edit

{{wikipedia}}, {{wikipedia-deleted}}

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