This page lists all templates created on the FAIR English Wiki up to 6 August 2007.

It is easier to put all the templates with their English titles. Once they exist, if you rename them (i.e., click MOVE and give a new name in Spanish) then the new and old names will work. Thus, Spanish speakers can use the Spanish titles, but code copied directly from the English wiki will work without any problems or need to change the names.


Reference Templates

Website and Hotlink Templates

Church LDS.org website

links to lds.org website

Format: {{lds|topic=Marriage|url=http://etc. }}

Appears like this:

LDS.org: Challenges in Marriage Church site

"Edit Me"

FAIR website link

Format: {{editme| url=PageName|before=TextBefore|after=TextAfter }}

Note:Use this at the top of templates to insert a small graphic for editors to click if they wish to edit the template list. The URL should be the page NAME that appears when one clicks "edit" the page which the link should edit.

Example of its use: Template:ArticleMasterLists (For this example page, the url is Template:ArticleMasterLists)


{{editme|url=FAIRWiki:Table_of_contents|before=This text is before the graphic|after='''This bold text is after the graphic'''}}

Gives the following output:

This text is before the graphic This bold text is after the graphic

Note that if you do not want text before (and/or after), you must STILL include the before= and after= arguments, but leave them blank. So, to make a link to Table of Contents with no writing beside the icon, use:


Which gives:

If you don't include the blank before=|after=, then you get this:

{{{before}}} {{{after}}}

...which is ugly. :-)
