This category provides templates for creating new articles and entering data into existing ones.
Templates provide a common, uniform way of entering data into a page. They can handle formatting, calculations and category insertion among other things. Templates also provide automatic updates. If a template gets updated, so do the articles that use it.
Be sure to use templates when contributing so that this functionality can be taken advantage of.
Most of the templates contain instructions in the form of comments or Usage documentation.
Read them thoroughly and follow the directions to ensure proper use of the template.
The lists below provide access to commonly-used and recommended templates. All templates in this category can be found at the bottom. You can also search this category.
