From Wikiversity

A merger has been proposed.

It has been suggested that this resource or section be merged with Topic:Templates (Discuss).

This topic is about creating templates for MediaWiki, the software used to host Wikiversity, Wikipedia and a wide range of other projects and web sites. To learn to write your own templates for MediaWiki, there are a number of lessons we will offer here.

  • Using Template Substitution - Help:Substitution
