FANDOM


There are many templates in use in Disney Infinity Wiki; these are only a subset, representing some of 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 cover all templates in the wiki, categorized into the various subcategories.
  • The Template namespace (found from Special:Allpages) always has all templates in the wiki, sorted alphanumerically.

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 (e.g. {{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 on:

  1. a subpage using {{documentation}}; or
  2. the template page itself (inside "noinclude" tags); or
  3. the template's talk page.

For more information on templates, see Help:Templates.

Article management templates

Nominate an article for deletion

{{delete}}

{{speedydelete|<reason>}}

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:
The Prince <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
The Prince (frog)
The Prince (human)

Stubs

{{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.
  • For more information, see Help:Stubs.

Future Releases

{{future}}

  • This template is to be used to mark pages whose topic is something that is to be released at a future date, in order to avoid confusion.

Update

{{outdated}}

  • This template is to be used to mark pages whose information is no longer considered current or up-to-date.

Needs Source

{{NeedsSource}}

  • This template is to be used on a page that needs more external references in order for its content to be verified.

Spoilers

{{Spoiler}}

  • This template is to be used on pages that contain content from a recent release that could spoil things for those that have not seen/played it yet.

Infobox Templates

Infobox templates are special templates that are placed at the top of a page, on the right. They are used to express a lot of information in a more concise manner than a page could without it. There are many different inbox templates, each for use on a different type of page. They can all be found in Category:Infobox templates.

Franchise Templates

The Disney Infinity Wiki has a collection of collapsable templates that list everything in the Disney Infinity games that comes from a particular franchise. They are meant to be placed at the bottom of a page, to help direct readers to other objects from a franchise when they are finished reading about the page's subject. The complete list can be found at Disney Infinity Wiki:List of Franchise Templates, as well as in Category:Franchise templates.

Category templates

General category template

{{category}}

  • This can be added to categories to add general categorising details. Use in cases where it may be useful to point out to users how to categorise, such as popular categories.

Template category template

{{templatecategory}}

  • This should be added to any template-related categories, to list template-specific categorising details, which differ from those of normal pages.

Image Templates

  • These templates are used to show how an image is being used and from where it was added to the wiki. They can be accessed at Category:Image wiki templates.

User Templates

The Disney Infinity Wiki has a collection of templates that are designed to be placed on user pages. They each represent a particular franchise, playable character, gaming console, or some other fandom that a user may wish to let other users know that they enjoy. The complete list of these can be found at Disney Infinity Wiki:List of User Templates, or in Category:User templates.

General wiki templates

Gallery

{{gallery}}

  • This template is used to create a gallery page off of an existing page.
  • Adding the template will create a link to a gallery page for the page it has been added to, which can then be created and edited.

Quotes

{{quotes}}

  • This template is used to create a quotes page off of an existing page.
  • Adding the template will create a link to a quotes page for the page it has been added to, which can then be created and edited.
  • It is not to be confused with Template:Quote, seen below.

Quote

{{Quote}}

  • This template is to show direct quotations from specific characters or people.
  • It is not to be confused with Template:Quotes, seen above.

See Also

{{See also}}

  • This template is used to direct readers to pages that will tell them more information related to the topic of the page they are on.

Not to be Confused With

{{NTBCW}}

  • This template is used to eliminate ambiguity between pages with similar names.
  • It is to be used on both pages in question.

Spacer

{{Spacer}}

  • This template is to be used in places where the space desired cannot be achieved through the use of traditional wikia code. It creates a medium-sized space.

'

{{'}}

  • This template is used so that it is easier to add an apostrophe to a page in certain situations where it must be written next to other apostrophes in the code without being part of the code. Rather than having to use nowiki code, this template, which uses nowiki code, can be used as a shortcut.

*

{{*}}

  • This template is used so that it is easier to add an asterisk to a page without it turning into a bullet point. Rather than having to use nowiki code every time, this template, which uses nowiki code, can be used as a shortcut.

Vine

{{Vine}}

  • This template is used to embed a vine onto a page.
  • To use it, the link to the desired vine must be added into the template.

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.

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.

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.

Welcome

{{welcIP}} and {{welcome}}

  • The first (with longer version "welcomeIP" for those of you who like typing more) is to welcome new non-vandalistic contributors who are "anonymous", identified only by their IP number; it encourages them to register.
  • The second template is for welcoming new registered users. Should be customized for the wiki, indicating the pages we most want newcomers to visit.
  • The above two templates are very suitable for having "subst:" prefixed, because they can be edited with additions or deletions appropriate to the apparent strengths of the person being welcomed; e.g. if the contributor has already demonstrated good wiki editing skills you could delete references to pages about "how to edit".

Wikipedia

{{wikipedia}}

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

Where you may find more templates

  • Wikia Templates
  • Wikipedia; may be copied with the proper acknowledgment, but some need tweaking to work properly on Wikia, so use a Wikia one if possible.
