Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Template:Howto other

From FlightGear wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.


This template can be used to show a different text if it is not used on a page in the howto namespace. It can also be used for category suppression, to avoid that a page is categorized if it is not in the howto namespace

If more than one namespace need to be handled, use {{namespace detect}}.


{{howto other|text if howto|text if other |demospace=}}

All parameters are optional.

text if howto
Text to use if the template is on a page in the howto namespace.
text if other
Text to use if the template is on a page in any other namespace.
Namespace override. If it is empty or undefined the namespace of the page with the template on will be used, if it is howto then text if howto will be shown and if it is other or any other namespace then text if other will be used.


Text selection

Since this is a template page this text will be shown.

Category suppression

Using the template like this will only categorize a page when it is in the main article space:

{{howto other|[[Category:Howto]]}}
