Cos'è TemplateWizard?

TemplateWizard è una estensione di MediaWiki che fornisce una finestra emergente nella barra di utensili del WikiEditor partorisca inserire planning in wikitext .

Come utilizzo TemplateWizard?

  • Per usare TemplateWizard, apri l'editor Wikitesto (non l'editor Wikitesto 2017)
  • Colloca il cursore nella posizione dove vuoi inserire il template. Dopo clicca l'icona del puzzle   nella barra strumenti -  
  • Apparirà una finestra di dialogo

Come trovo un template?

  • Inizia a scrivere il nome di un template e apparirà un elenco di template tra cui scegliere.  
  • Nota: Solo i template che hanno TemplateData avranno una descrizione. Sei incoraggiato ad aggiungere TemplateData ai template.
  • Quando trovi il template che stai cercando, clicca su di esso (o spostati con i tasti freccia) e premi Intro. Questo ti porterà alla finestra di inserimento.

Come aggiunto dati al template che ho scelto?

  • The top bar you see now contains the template title, description, a link   to the template's wiki page, and a close button   to close the template form and return to search.
  • The left-side list of parameters, divided into up to three parts for required, suggested, and optional parameters. This area also has a button at the bottom with which to add or remove all non-required fields at once. Note that some templates have no parameters, and in these cases nothing will be listed here. When you click on a template parameter, it gets added to the right side.
  • The right-side form containing the actual data-entry fields into which you put the values that will be added to the wikitext. Only those parameters that are listed here will be inserted into the editing area (including those that contain no value, as templates can treat this differently from the parameter not being present at all).
  • You can click on the info icons above the template fields to read more information about them.


  • TemplateWizard works most effectively with templates that have TemplateData defined: i.e. their parameters have been documented in a detailed and structured way, including default values etc. (information about how to do that is in the TemplateData help pages). It also works without TemplateData definitions, although with some reduced functionality. These two modes are described in the next two sections.
    Only required fields are added by default
    Popups for field information
    Auto-complete for page names on the wiki
    Auto-complete for files from Commons
    Custom field inputs for dates, long-form text fields, numbers etc.

Using TemplateWizard with TemplateData

There are seven different types of field used in TemplateWizard, based on the parameter type defined in the TemplateData.

Name[fn 1] Type[fn 2] Field used Notes
1. Number number NumberInputWidget
2. Date date DateInputWidget
3. User wiki-user-name UserInputWidget
4. Page wiki-page-name TitleInputWidget For any page name (including files).
5. File wiki-file-name TitleInputWidget Limited to titles in the File namespace, and displayed with thumbnail images.
6. Template wiki-template-name TitleInputWidget Limited to titles in the Template namespace.
7. Anything else TextInputWidget All other types will be displayed as standard text-entry inputs, and will accept any text.
  1. The name as used in the TemplateData form.
  2. The type as used in the TemplateData JSON.

TemplateData itself supports more field types than are listed above. Some of these may be added in task T200664.

Using TemplateWizard without TemplateData

If a template does not have any TemplateData, then an attempt will be made to guess the names of its parameters, and these will be presented as standard text entry form fields with labels as they are guessed.

Note that it is likely that there will be duplicated, deprecated, or missing parameters in this list, because template authors will do things such as the following to allow different forms of a parameter name: {{{full name|{{{Full Name}}}}}} (note the difference in letter case). It is common for there to be a prefered form for a parameter, and this can only be found by viewing the template documentation (and, while you're there, maybe adding TemplateData, so other people aren't confused in the future!).

How do I insert the template?

When you've added all desired parameters to the template form and given them their values (including no value at all if you need an empty parameter), click the 'Submit' button at the top right of the dialog window and the template wikitext will be inserted at the cursor's current location in the main page editing box.

Template text will be inserted according to the format defined in TemplateData; if none is given then the 'inline' format will be used. It is not possible to have a different custom format for one template (but of course the template wikitext can always be edited after insertion).
