FANDOM


There are many templates in use in Buzz Out Loud 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.
