Template editing

Hey there! Thanks so much for helping contribute to the UniWiki; I really appreciate it! I noticed you recently categorized a few templates, which is great, since without categories they can be a lot harder to find (and thus use). However, it's important to be really careful about editing template pages - the only thing on the main template page should be the template itself enclosed in <includeonly>...</includeonly> tags, and the {{documentation}} template, itself enclosed inside <noinclude>...</noinclude> tags. Any categories should actually go on the documentation page, and are applied via clever use of <includeonly>...</includeonly> and <noinclude>...</noinclude>. Most (if not all) templates with documentation follow this pattern if you ever need an example, and of course I or any other Wiki Curator would be happy to answer any questions you might have about best wiki practices (or anything else). Thank you again for your continued help, and happy editing! - Djavin novienta (talk) 18:38, 15 March 2017 (CDT)

Template layout

So, no categories inside of <noinclude>...</noinclude> in the template file itself? I will go back and revert my existing edits. I am used to a template format of

  • <noinclude>...</noinclude> containing comments in comment brackets
  • <includeonly>...</includeonly> containing the template code
  • {{documentation}}
  • <noinclude>...</noinclude> containing the categorization

(and yes, i realize I missed <noinclude>...</noinclude> tags in a few edits the other day
