Translate the HTMLTemplates extension if it is available at translatewiki.net

The HTMLTemplates extension allows admins to make raw html templates in the HTMLTemplate namespace, which other users can use. The templates use wikitext style paramaters (e.g. {{{1}}}) which are automatically escaped. This is designed to be a safer alternative than Extension:Widgets, which has a lot of gotchas for non-technical users.

To use, simply create a page in the HTMLTemplate: namespace, then include it on a page with {{HTMLTemplate:Page name|parameter1= value of parameter}}

The extension is a work in progress, and not all contexts are properly supported yet.

Installation edit

  • Download and move the extracted HTMLTemplates folder to your extensions/ directory.
    Developers and code contributors should install the extension from Git instead, using:cd extensions/
    git clone https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/extensions/HTMLTemplates
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'HTMLTemplates' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

User rights edit

You need the edithtmltemplates right to edit HTMLTemplates. By default the editinterface group is given this.
