page where we can discuss the creation of those templates[edit]

Perhaps it would be a good idea to have a page where we can discuss the creation of those templates (other then Wikipedia:Categories for deletion...).--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 16:31, 4 April 2006 (UTC)

Actually, this talk page would be fine for now—what would you like to discuss? —Doug Bell talkcontrib 08:32, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Theatre Related[edit]

As of this writing, there's no Theatre Related subcategory. There are several templates, such as four Internet Broadway Database templates and four Internet Off-Broadway Database templates, which could go into such a category. I'm going to create it. --Larrybob (talk) 06:02, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

do all citation templates have external links?[edit]

do all citation templates have external links? because if so, then should all the citation templates be grouped into that subcategory, AND then the citation template group be 1 single subcategory under this one. Bud0011 (talk) 17:40, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Book and printed article citation templates need not have external links -- there may be no relevant online source. (talk) 16:41, 25 August 2009 (UTC)


The blurb at the top of the category describes IMDB as highly reliable. Much of IMDB appears to be written at the whim of promoters (and self promoters). I suggest a better example, very tentatively (which is not without its own problems, of course). Better suggestions? -- Hoary (talk) 04:35, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

IMDB is highly reliable for information about the existence of a movie, and for production information and the cast and credits information. MarkAtwood (talk) 18:35, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

GLANSIS template?[edit]

I want to create a template for the GLANSIS database on certain fish species so I can add species fact sheets to articles on aquatic invasives. Many links were broken and removed after a web upgrade. Hope to prevent future problems. Greatlakesavenger (talk) 18:02, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

How can I create an external link template?[edit]

Is there a page that discusses how to create an external link template? I am hoping to create a template for the Museum of Modern Art's online collection, which will allow me to link to artists' pages and collection objects. Thanks, Cbernasc (talk) 22:03, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

The page Wikipedia:Template messages and the links there, particularly Wikipedia:Template messages/Links#External links and Help:Template, might be good places to start to get an understanding of templates. Rather than starting afresh, it's of course easier to find a related template and build on that. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 10:16, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
