Category:Pages which use a template in place of a magic word

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This category lists pages which do any of the following:

  • Use a template instead of a "Wikipedia logo"magic word, for example: {{Namespace}} instead of {{NAMESPACE}}.
  • Use a magic word with a pipe ("|") when only a colon (":") should be used, for example: {{DEFAULTSORT|foo}} instead of {{DEFAULTSORT:foo}}.
  • Use a magic word with a parameter when no parameters are supported, for example: {{=|foo}} instead of {{=}}.

The Wikimedia software contains a series of "Wikipedia logo"Magic words that the software processes in various ways. Many of these magic words, such as those listed above, look like templates, but they are not templates. It's quite common for editors to assume that they are templates and to format them like templates, but doing so prevents the magic word from functioning. As a result, we have created a series of templates with the same name as the magic word to ensure that pages still function correctly when this happens. The most common errors that prevent the magic word from working properly are incorrect capitalization or using "|" instead of ":".

None of the templates should have any transclusions, and so this category should always be empty. If you see a page in this category, please correct the wikicode so that it correctly processes as a magic word.
