From RuneScape Classic Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are many templates in use in RuneScape Classic 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 templates

The following templates are for use in the article namespace

General wiki templates



  • 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


  • This template floats the table of contents (toc) on the right. It should only be used when absolutely necessary, to keep consistent design.



  • 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 {{clear}} 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 {{clear|<left>}} or {{clear|<right>}} to clear only left or right floats.

Article management templates



  • When a page has little or no useful information, then it is likely a stub. This template will include them in Category:Stubs, and is used to list which articles need expanding.
  • For more information, see Help:Stubs.

Nominate an article for deletion



Disambiguation articles


  • 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)
This code... Produces this...
Treestump.png This article is a stub.
You can help by expanding it.
Fire-Rune.png This is a disambiguation page, distinguishing subjects with similar names. Runiteore.png
If an internal link led you here, you may wish to change the link to point directly to the intended article.

Grain.png This article or section is in need of cleanup.
You can edit this page to improve it.

Talk page templates

The following templates are for use on talk pages


{{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".

Category templates

Templates for use on category pages

General category template


  • 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


  • This should be added to any template-related categories, to list template-specific categorising details, which differ from those of normal pages.
This code... Produces this...
{{category}} To add an article, image, or category to this category, append [[Category:Templates]] to the end of its page.
{{templatecategory}} ==Using this category==

To put a template in Category:Templates:

  • Use <includeonly>[[Category:Templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]</includeonly> on the documentation page (see Template:Documentation for more info). The "<includeonly>" tags are necessary to prevent categorizing all pages using the template (and the documentation page) in the template category! Please also note the |{{PAGENAME}}.
  • If your template is meant to be used in-line, try and make sure that there are as few line feeds (breaks, whitespace, etc.) as possible.
  • Remember that a template can be put in multiple categories if it belongs to them all!
  • Or, if this is not quite the right category, go back to Category:Templates and try to find a better suited subcategory.
{{imagecategory}} ==How to add your own image==
  • To upload images, visit Special:Upload.
  • When uploading them, please add a description and category in the summary box.
  • To add an image to this category, put [[Category:Templates]] in that image article.
  • Add to a page by using the Gallery widget or by using the code [[Image:Filename.jpg|thumb|Caption]]
