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

Article with prerequisite

Unspecified or incorrect parameter

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

Goal

This template will advise the reader to first read through one or more articles and then continuing with the current article.

Adding this template to a page in the article, Howto or Help namespace will automatically add the page to a subcategory to Category:Pages with prerequisites. This can be suppressed by using a non-empty nocat parameter.

Usage

Put this template between the article text and any previous messageboxes.

{{prereq |article= |articles= |area= |areas= |skill= |skills= |nocat=}}

All the parameters are optional and except for nocat refer to that before reading the page the reader should preferably:

article, articles
Have read one or more articles linked to.
area, areas
Have knowledge in one or more areas.
skill, skills
Have one or more skills.
nocat
If non-empty pages will not be categorized.
