Category talk:Templates

Jump to: navigation, search

Is is possible to put all templates in here, or would that produce problems with the templates or the namespace? Searching templates is one of my least favorite occupations. --Xeeron 22:40, 10 February 2006 (CST)

Just make sure to noinclude the categorization... for multi-piece templates we might even sub-cat them. -PanSola 22:43, 10 February 2006 (CST)

Nice idea, what about all my zillions of templates that have little use? :P — Skuld 23:04, 10 February 2006 (CST)

Just tell me where they are and I'll get the delete template ready ;-)

No seriously, just wiki templates here, no stuff that is used on User pages only. --Xeeron 03:16, 11 February 2006 (CST)

What's wrong with using Allpages (Template namespace) instead? --Rezyk 03:31, 11 February 2006 (CST)

One big issue, one small. Big issue - I had no idea that existed. Small issue: Templates cant be grouped in subcategories.
Oh and with big issue I dont totally mean that I am to stupid (only to 75% hehe): Since I didnt know about that page after contributing for several months, I'd say it is a good guess that more than 95% of all wiki users dont know that page. And it is not linked to anywhere (anywhere I looked at least).
PS: Span class?? plainlinks? Server (why does this look like a template and is not listed in the link you just gave)? --Xeeron 04:04, 11 February 2006 (CST)
Hmm..actually I suspect you knew about that page but forgot all about it. ;)
  • <span class="plainlinks">...</span> supresses any external link icons.
  • SERVER and localurl are special magic words in MediaWiki -- particularly handy when the site domain name isn't stable.

Fyren even posted a similar link as you did once on my talk page (or somewhere) but it stopped working a while ago. Maybe I should have investigated =)
And yes, I claim old age lol. It starts all going downhill after you hit 20 ;-) --Xeeron 06:28, 11 February 2006 (CST)

Stuck for categorising[edit source]

I read that above and don't get it. lol. I tried categorising some stuff but it is incredibly hard to think what to put stuff under, 50%+ deserve their own category :p — Skuld 03:21, 13 February 2006 (CST)

We'll worry about it more when the population increases in this category. -PanSola 09:39, 13 February 2006 (CST)


Broken?[edit source]

Did the upgrade break this? There's nothing listed under the category, and some of the templates aren't working. - Falcon213 06:23, 7 April 2006 (CDT)

See GuildWiki:Software_&_Technical_Issues/Bugs#Categories FUBAR, and the fix outlined right above it. — Stabber (talk) 06:29, 7 April 2006 (CDT)

I have a hard time telling whether or not templates do anything, since the code in them is either blank or shows up as unreadable characters. Or, nothing links to it or includes it on GWiki. That was one such template. I'll restore it, but I don't understand why it says Unused if it was useful...unless you always Subst: it. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:02, 30 November 2007 (UTC)
It was ised in some login announcements, recently, in the Mad King Thorn appearance.. it would be used certaily in the winterdays event also.. I think.. — Corsaire Corsaire Signature.gif 09:02, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
Would be helpful to have a "Seasonal Templates" category, then. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 22:52, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
