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

Latest revision as of 13:14, 5 June 2019

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

Due to the {{This months newsletter}} template it is no longer necessary to copy-paste an old newsletter and change old dates. The newsletter header already supports to (pre)load this draft page automatically (intead of the red link). This is the correct place for any changes to the newsletter structure and default segments.


The following parameters will be replaced during preload process:

  • $1 for month (01,02,...12)
  • $2 for Year (like 2019).
  • $3 for current release (2018.3) based on {{current release}}.

Use the time function to get more dates, like

  • {{#time: form |date |lang=xx}} form is like F=FullMonthname and Y=Year, see below
  • {{#time: F Y |$2-$1}} for "August 2019"


  • Use <noinclude> </noinclude> for notes to get ignored when preloading this draft into new newsletters (this template description).
  • Use <includeonly> <includeonly> for elements to not show up here but in a newsletter. (like Categories)

It is therefore recommended to use the best viable filter settings (anti-aliasing, texture sharpening, etc.). More info at Howto:Make nice screenshots.
