Style-Usage Tips[edit]

Format Demo[edit]


  • the form is


How to reference other WikiMedia, e.g. WikiBooks, from encylopedia categories.

Can the Category tag be used to include an explict url to a page other than itself? Neither the Help:Categorization or Cat-FAQ discuss this issue

I added a 'Related WikiMedia' topic to the Rubik's Cube category for it's How To Solve book.

Trivial Tests[edit]

Avoid using meta-templates - Scope creep[edit]

Thread with comments from User:BlankVerse re scope creep and related clearness issues in WP:AUM moved to Wikipedia talk:Avoid using meta-templates.

Bottom of Page - Please Insert Comments Above![edit]

Edit this section to add your talk comments above by inserting a --new topic-- above this one. Having a section at the bottom, saves having to edit the whole page, just to add new. Ditto the top entry: only minimal lead paragraph (which can remain constant). Editable intro text goes into Sect#1.
