One of the most important things that's used in most wikis are, in my opinion, templates. They are sometimes hard to understand and difficult to use if you are new to wiki and the wiki language but with some practice you can quickly learn to use them efficiently.

So let's get right into it. The first thing you want to know is, where to find templates? The first place you want to check is [[Category:Templates]] (I can't link to it because wiki thinks I'm trying to add a category to this page). This is where all of the templates are categorized and are reachable. There are also sub categories like [[Cateogry:Infobox templates]].

I will talk about a few of the important templates here so you don't have to look for the right ones on your own for the moment. Later on, when you get more familiar with templates you might even be able to create your own.

Here is a list of some of the most useful template:

  • {{ability}} creates a tooltip link (champion ability only)
  • {{abilitytip}} creates the source for ability tooltips
  • {{item}} creates a tooltip link (items only)
  • {{itemtip}} creates the source for item tooltips
  • {{column}} used to create multiple column text
  • {{Color}} used to style the text using specific keywords.
  • {{Colorlink}} similar to {{Color}} but used for creating a styled link
  • {{Delete}} If you think a page needs to be deleted you can mark it with this template.
  • {{t}} is used to link to template pages and show some example input variables.
  • {{Tocright}} is used to place the table of content to the right of the page.

Now that we've identified some of the more useful templates we can start to learn how to use them. To use most templates you need to first call for them using their name:

{{templatename

Now you need to fill in some variables that are required or are optional by the template and finally close the template using }}.

{{templatename|<first_variable>|<second_variable>|...}}

Notice that each variable is separated by a "|" character which is very commonly used in wikitext. Also notice that you can also add a linebreak before each "|" to create a more organized look, for example:

{{templatename
|<first_variable>
|<second_variable>
|...
}}

More information is always included on the template documentation page so go a head and visit the template pages to learn more about them and if you find a page with insufficient information, make sure you check who created it and contact them to explain the template or add a documentation for the template.

I hope you find this post useful and let me know if you have any other questions.
