Template Documentation

  • Templates are documented either in the template itself (when the template is short and simple), or in a "/doc" sub-page. The "/doc" sub-page link will be found at the bottom of the template, and will be the template's name with "/doc" appended to it (without quotes). Example: Template:Cat_State's documentation is located at: Template:Cat_State/doc
  • For recommendations about how to document a template, please navigate to: Templates-List: Documentation.
