A list of templates I often use, and some other editing helps.

Editing in the Page namespace[edit]

Editing templates[edit]

Drop initial
 
  • Bar: short line in text. {{bar}} makes ——————; {{bar|2}} makes ——; {{bar|1}} makes (=mdash);
there's nothing between {{bar|1}} and {{bar|2}}; so {{bar|1.5}} = {{bar|2}}
  • Rule: inserts a horizontal rule: {{rule|10em}} makes:

Ruler side.gifRuler center.gifRuler side.gif

(with optional parameters)
  • Frame: a frame around text.
  • block center: text in the middle, left aligned.
  • c: center
  • clear: adds html clear:both
  • dhr: double height row: two textrows between paragraphs (or more with parms)
  • ditto: for aligning text in tables etc. with quotation marks. See e.g. this page
  • DJVU page link
  • frac: making fractions with 1,2 or 3 parameters! {{frac|a|b|c}} makes a+bc; * and sfrac: a (vertical) fraction, like 5/6.
  • gap: to create some space
  • hi -> Hanging indent
  • hidden text -> for aligning e.g. this (contents) page
  • hws: hyphenated word start - syntax: {{hws|differ|differences}} For hws and hwe combined with italics, see: doc on Template (below)
  • hwe: hyphenated word end - syntax: {{hwe|ences|differences}}
  • left: for aligning left (with a <div>!), like:

{{left|Dit staat links {{lorem ipsum}}}} gives:

Dit staat links Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

en {{left|Dit staat links {{lorem ipsum}}|offset=10em}} gives:

Dit staat links Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

  • Loop: for repeating a string
  • nop: end of paragraph
  • nowrap: to avoid wrapping
  • 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


Rem:

  • poem is not a template, but a tag: <poem>....</poem>!

Sections: when chapters start halfway the page[edit]

When a chapter starts halfway the page, like on Page:Sir William Petty - A Study in English Economic Literature - 1894.djvu/39, use section headers; and link to these headers in the main namespace: Bevan - Sir William Petty (1894)/II and Bevan - Sir William Petty (1894)/III.
