There are many templates in use in Yu-Gi-Oh Card Maker Wiki and these are only subset, representing 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?

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

Nominate an article for deletion

{{delete}}

Disambiguation articles

{{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:
Werewolf <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
Werewolf(Card)
Werewolf(Archetype)

Fact check / citation needed

{{fact}}

  • Add this next to a phrase in an article to flag it for a fact check. It inserts a small link in the text[citation needed] and places the article in Category:Articles needing citations

Stubbing

{{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

General category template

{{category}}

  • This can be added to categories to add general categorising details.

Template category template

{{templatecategory}}

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


General wiki templates

Clear

{{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.

Right-aligned Table of Contents

{{tocright}}

  • This template floats the table of contents (toc) on the right. It should only be used when absolutely necessary, to keep consistent design.

Sandbox

{{sandbox}}

T is for template

{{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.


Wikipedia

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

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

Navigation wiki templates

For

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

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

Main article

{{main|<main article>}}

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