Additional Formatting


Templates, or tables, are very commonly used to display data. A list of them can be found here:

Adding References

When adding information about factual claims (i.e Pit of Panga: U-Break has a Guinness World Record) it's important to add a source whenever possible. To add a reference, follow one of these steps:

<ref>[URL Title]</ref>
Sample Output
<ref>[http://example.net Example Domain]</ref> gives...
Example Domain

<ref>{{Cite web|url= |title= |publisher= }}</ref>
Sample Output
<ref>{{Cite web|url=http://example.net|title=Example Domain|publisher= Someone}}</ref> gives...
Example Domain. Someone.

Named Parameters
If a source is going to be used multiple times, then you can add a name parameter to easily display the source in another location:
  • Change <ref> into <ref name="Example">
  • To add the source to a second location simply add <ref name="Example" />

Important: In order to display these properly <references/> must included at the bottom of the page in a "references" section.

Magic Words

Full list of Magic Words

Magic Words are short codes that cause various effects to happen. Generally speaking, its not really necessary to worry about most of these as they're used sparingly. For example, on the Glossary page "__NOTOC__" is used to hide the table of contents so that a custom alphabet one can be added instead.

Text Effect
_FORCETOC__ Force Table of Contents
__NOTOC__ Hide Table of Contents
__HIDDENCAT__ Makes a Category become hidden
{{CURRENTDAYNAME}} Displays current day of the week.
{{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} Displays the number of articles
{{SITENAME}} Displays the name of the community
{{PAGENAME}} Displays the name of the page
{{FULLPAGENAME}} Displays the entire name of a page, including prefixes.
{{DISPLAYTITLE}} Changes the header of the article.
