¿Qué ye TemplateData?

VisualEditor, la interfaz visual pa editar páxines wiki, incluye una ferramienta pa editar plantíes de mou cenciellu. Sicasí, pa qu'esa ferramienta pueda ser más útil, necesita poder estrayer información de la plantía; sobre too, necesita una llista de los posibles parámetros de la plantía, y les sos carauterístiques.

Ensin TemplateData

Without TemplateData, each parameter needs to be added manually when inserting a new template.

No information is provided about what the value of the parameter should be.

With TemplateData

With TemplateData, a list of supported parameters (and their description) is provided for the template.

TemplateData provides context for each parameter, and makes it much easier for users to modify templates.

Adding TemplateData

One of the things we need volunteers to do is the adding of TemplateData to templates (particularly high-profile ones, such as infoboxes) so that they are easy to edit.

The TemplateData help page explains how to add TemplateData information to a template.

You can probably think of some pretty important templates on your wiki very easily; experienced users know pretty well which templates are a big deal, and will inevitably find out when they try to use them and discover there isn't any TemplateData.

You can find an automatically-generated list of most used templates on your wiki on the Special:MostUsedTemplates special page.
