This page provides an index of templates used within Wikiafripedia, many of which convey messages; they are grouped into topic-specific headings. For information on what templates are, and how the template namespace is intended to be used, see WAP:Template namespace. For information on template use and development, see Help:Template. For the project team looking after templates on Wikiafripedia, see WAP:WikiProject Templates.

For navigation templates rather than notices, see WAP:Navigation templates. For stub templates (used to flag articles as incomplete and needing significant expansion), see WAP:WikiProject Stub sorting/Stub types. For some examples of message templates, see WAP:Template messages/Examples. For examples of combined message boxes, see Combined message boxes.

Using this page[edit source | edit]

The bold links at the top of each cell lead to detailed pages which describe the templates in that section in detail and explain how and when to use them.

If you cannot find the template you are looking for, please click on the section headers that seem most relevant, since there may be templates for a particular usage covered on the detailed pages, but not listed in the table below.

If you still cannot find the template you need, you can request it on Wikiafripedia:Requested templates. For help on creating templates, see Help:Template or contact a user who has identified himself or herself as an adept template coder. Note that in order to maintain consistent design of templates, there have been significant discussions about a variety of templates at both Template talk:Ambox and Wikiafripedia talk:Talk page templates.

A more comprehensive category system may also be viewed at Category:Wikiafripedia templates.

Can improvements be made easily to a page?[edit source | edit]

Before placing cleanup templates on a page, it is worthwhile to cast a critical eye over the page to determine whether or not you can make the improvements easily, thus eliminating the need for a tag.
