Portal creation templates[edit]

New design: Template:Basic portal start page[edit]

See {{Basic portal start page}} for instructions.

This is a one-page portal design that results in a portal that is nearly fully automated. That is, content remains up-to-date, and content selection expands as the subject's coverage expands on Wikipedia. However, the community has expressed strong disagreement with fully automated portals. This structure will pull in any errors or oddities in the sources it relies on. You may need to adjust and continue to monitor the selected articles and other sources like NAV boxes it relies on to avoid undesirable results in the Portal.

Old design: Template:Box portal skeleton[edit]

See {{Box portal skeleton}} for instructions.

This design uses subpages, and is in the process of being phased out.
