Latest news Current tasks
  • The Wiltshire template now has a 'needs-infobox' feature to be added on articles that do not have infoboxes. Just add {{WikiProject Wiltshire|class=|importance=|needs-infobox=yes}} to the talk page of any article needing an infobox and it will be added to the Wiltshire articles needing infoboxes category. Once an infobox has been added to the article, don't forget to remove the needs-infobox=yes on the talk page.
  • The Wiltshire Portal (shortcut:P:Wilts) is more or less complete now although some sections have gaps which need to be filled in. If you have any new ideas for the portal, please feel free and add them at P:Wilts.
