Path of Exile Wiki:Overview of Templates

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A template is a page created to be included in other pages. Templates usually contain repetitive material that might need to show up on any number of articles or pages. They are commonly used for standard warnings or notices, infoboxes, navigational boxes and similar purposes. The most common method of inclusion is called transclusion, where the wikitext of the target page contains a reference to the template, using the {{Template name}} syntax.

Templates that are being used on a page shows up in a list at the bottom of when in editing mode or in the sidebar. They link to their main page which explains the purpose, parameters and other useful information.
