Following is a list of templates currently used on the Tardis Data Core, the Doctor Who Wiki to assist in editing of pages. Templates allow you to use the same information or tables on different pages without having to type it out each time.

Follow the Infobox template links for usage information on each of the Infobox templates.

  • Usage: {{conjecture}}

Stubs

Stub templates are used to place a small tag to the top left of an article which is stubby. There's nothing wrong with starting an article knowing that you haven't fully described the subject. But if you do, please be sure to use the appropriate stub template. Doing so not only puts up a visual cue to other readers, but it also categorises the page alongside other similar types of stub.

There are many stub templates on this wiki — so many, in fact, that the list is in its own help file.

External links

These are templates to replace links in the 'External Links' section of most of the story pages. They are the most commonly used sites for TV stories or novel, novella and audio drama stories. The layout for these templates follows the basic layout of {{template name|unique web address identifier (see below)|story name}}.
