Welcome to the Template Taskforce! This is part of the MediaWiki Project.

This is (will be) a guide to creating, perfecting, deploying and documenting templates used at Wikiversity.


Please take the Wikiversity:Guided tour if you haven't already.

Immediate needs[edit]

Templates imported from other projects often need updating to reflect the needs of Wikiversity, and documentation of their intended use, variations, and substitution procedures, etc. See a complete list of templates. Please include templates that need work below along with a brief summary of what attention is needed:

Language and translation[edit]

This Wikiversity page is under construction. If you see a Red link, turn it into a Blue link. If you see something that needs Translation, translate it. If you don't agree with something or have a question, simply go to Wikiversity talk:Templates with your concerns. This is a wiki!

Getting Started[edit]

Make sure you have read through Wiki 101, paying particular attention to the Templates section. That section deals with small templates that are added to pages as reusable infoboxes, navigational aids and such. Our textbook is the Help:Template section of the MediaWiki Handbook at Meta. Please sign up below and introduce yourself at Wikiversity talk:Templates.
