Templates

Templates are a way of coding Elftown so that by typing a simple code into a wiki, it automatically replaces it with whatever you want

<img:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v337/Lordpenguin/Elftown%20banners/template%20images/bluedot.bmp><img:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v337/Lordpenguin/Elftown%20banners/template%20images/bluedot.bmp><img:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v337/Lordpenguin/Elftown%20banners/template%20images/bluedot.bmp><img:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v337/Lordpenguin/Elftown%20banners/template%20images/bluedot.bmp><img:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v337/Lordpenguin/Elftown%20banners/template%20images/bluedot.bmp><img:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v337/Lordpenguin/Elftown%20banners/template%20images/bluedot.bmp>

First you must set up a template wiki (dots for example) for the shortcuts to be taken from. This is just a normal wiki.

The template wiki must be set out with the code you wish to use, a colon, and then whatever you wish it to be replaced with. Text, tags, images, it all works.

It is a good idea to use capital letters for your codes, as these will be used less often in just randon talk. If you set "the" as a shortcut, every time "the" is typed, the insert will appear, not only when you want it to.

Now, add this to the first line of the wiki in which you wish to use the template:
Template:(name of template wiki)

Template:dots

Now, whenever you type one of those codes into that wiki, whatever you typed in the template wiki will replace it!

2004-11-15 [Shreya]: tempalte typo in the last section. Great job though! ^-^

2004-12-13 [Penguinlord]: thanks

2005-01-12 [sprattel_dvaerg]: ahhh.. this thing kicks ass.. but it doesnt work in houses, does it?

2005-01-13 [Penguinlord]: i'm not sure. it doesn't work in messages, postings diary etc so i would say it is only for wiki

2005-01-13 [sprattel_dvaerg]: ok.. cause i tried on my house and that didnt work.. but for wikis it is great :D so how did you come up with this idea?

2005-01-14 [Penguinlord]: well chesstemplate is where i discovered it, and then i asked deiscorides about it.

2005-06-30 [Vesthrix]: Why does it need to be capitals? It seems to work just fine for me with lower case letters.

2005-06-30 [Penguinlord]: probly an upgrade... i'll check. yeah. But i would still advise you to use upper case, as that will avoid accidental shortcut usage.

2005-06-30 [Vesthrix]: I just use names that I would never normally write such "tree1"

2005-07-01 [Penguinlord]: hehe
