There are many templates in use in Screamer 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.

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, if you were looking for the templates like: "Stub" or "Cleanup", they are called: "Notice Templates", its a template that can commonly appear on articles, those templates notes the article.

Templates are generally shown with the format required to use the template (e.g. {{delete}}). Clicking the template name takes you to the template's page, where you can see what it looks like and how it is used, you can create a template (unless you have the administrator's permission to create one.) by creating with a name like this: "Template:(Name here)" and add some content, then, after creating one, now add the code: {{"The name of the Template"}} at the beginning of some pages and it will show the content.

  • Category:Templates should cover all templates in the wiki.
  • The Template namespace (found from Special:AllPages) always has all templates in the wiki, sorted alphanumerically.

Detailed instructions on the usage of each template should exist on:
