How it works[edit]

There are a few simple codes for each bullet point:

  • pass - Sets the status to ✔ check
  • fail - Sets the status to ✘ fail
  • Anything else will appear in parenthesis. For example "waiting for x" becomes (waiting for x)

All values default to (pending)

Categories[edit]

Once all fields are set to pass the article's talk page is then listed under Category:Articles that have been Wikified. Otherwise, the article's talk page is listed under Category:Articles currently undergoing Wikification.

Example[edit]

{{User:The_Thadman/Template/Wikification|pass|searching|fail}} becomes:
