A list of templates I often use.

Editing templates[edit]

  • Large initial and Drop initial
  • Bar: short line in text. {{bar}} makes ——————; {{bar|2}} makes ——
  • Rule: inserts a horizontal rule: {{rule|10em}} makes:
Ruler side.gifRuler center.gifRuler side.gif
(with optional parameters)
  • block center: text in the middle, left aligned.
  • c: center
  • dhr: double height row: two textrows between paragraphs (or more with parms)
  • frac: making fractions with 1,2 or 3 parameters! {{frac|a|b|c}} makes a+bc.
  • gap: to create some space
  • hi -> Hanging indent
  • hws: hyphenated word start - syntax: {{hws|differ|differences}}
  • hwe: hyphenated word end - syntax: {{hwe|ences|differences}}
  • nop: end of paragraph
  • rh: RunningHeader - syntax: {{RH|left|center|right}}
  • separator - syntax: {{separator|7}} - means: 7 dots
  • SIC - mind the capitals! example: {{SIC|taping mistake|typing mistake}} gives: taping mistake. Another example: The Voyage Out (my predecessor used "sic" and the word disappeared completely!)
  • Help about sidenotes, with links to different templates
  • Larger and smaller:
  • smaller block; with smaller block/s and smaller block/e
  • fine block: not as small as "smaller"
  • sfrac: a (vertical) fraction; see also frac, for fractions with a slash.
  • ts: table style - syntax for instance: {{ts|ac|sm}} (in format modifier-section) - means: cell gets centered and small txt (help on tables: mediawiki help-page)
  • poem is not a template, but a tag!
