The main one[edit]

I stole this tool box from Esprit15d, a useful set of links to templates often used on WP.

Quick links[edit]

Another stolen toolbox (from Kudpung), this time links to the most common Wikipedia tools and boards.

When there is a discussion on articles for such things as merge proposals or RfC's, at the end of the discussion you should close it with the following templates:

Shortcuts[edit]

On WikiProject and Portal pages, you often need to establish a quick way to jump to the page without typing a long name on the search field. So instead of typing Wikipedia:WikiProject Food and drink, all you would need to type is WP:Food or WP:Drink; this is done by creating a redirect page. Once the shortcut has been created, you can put the {{shortcut}} template on the Project or Portal talk page.

Look on the right side of the section for an example →


Columns[edit]

There are several ways to create columns on pages without going into wiki-code. Here are several templates that can be used to do this:

With {{Col-begin}}

{{Col-begin}} and its helpers {{col-break}} and {{col-end}} are one way of creating columns. They are formatted like this:

{{Col-begin}}
This text appears in the first column.
{{col-break}}
This text appears in the second column.
{{col-break}}
This text appears in the third column.
{{col-end}}

Will produce:

With {{Columns-list}}

{{Columns-list}} is rather simple method of creating columns of bulleted lists. It is formatted like this:

{{Columns-list|3|
* This text appears in the first column.
* This text appears in the second column.
* This text appears in the third column.
}}

Will produce:

  • This text appears in the first column.
  • This text appears in the second column.
  • This text appears in the third column.

You can vary the number of columns by changing the number after the first pipe (|).

With {{Div col}}

{{Div col}} is one way of creating columns of bulleted lists. It is formatted like this:

{{div col|3}}
* This text appears in the first column.
* This text appears in the second column.
* This text appears in the third column.
{{div col end}}

Will produce:

  • This text appears in the first column.
  • This text appears in the second column.
  • This text appears in the third column.

You can vary the number of columns by changing the number after the pipe (|).

With {{Multicol}}

{{Multicol}} and its helpers {{multicol-break}} and {{multicol-end}} are another way of creating columns. They are formatted like this:

{{Multicol}}
This text appears in the first column.
{{Multicol-break}}
This text appears in the second column.
{{Multicol-break}}
This text appears in the third column.
{{Multicol-end}}

Will produce:
