Expert manual

Guidelines are simple text boxes to be included (=transcluded) into other articles. They are useful for general guidelines that apply to more pages than one.

The difference to "real templates" is the way of transclusion:

  • Transclude a template: {{Templatename|Parameter value}}
  • Transclude a "normal" page: {{:Page name}} (note the colon before the page name!)

Examples:

  1. Template:Note-info can be transcluded via {{Note-info|title=Short info:|Please do read this carefully before moving on.}}
  2. Form guidelines with {{:Form guidelines}}

Form guidelines

Form guidelines are general form guidelines to help with quick filling of forms.
