Help the Wiki Look Its Best

Before creating articles on the AC Community Wiki, please take a moment to read the Naming Conventions page. Using standardized article names and image formats/sizes keeps the wiki clean, ensures Wiki Templates work as expected, and helps avoid duplicate entries. Thanks!

Page Templates

Here are some page templates designed for easy creation and editing of articles and to give the site a uniform look and feel.

On the template pages code has been provided that is ready to be highlighted and copied. Paste the blank template into the desired page. Fill in the blanks, remove any excess code left over from the template (things that don't apply to that page), preview to check for mistakes, then save.

Page templates are code for an entire page, there are also smaller Wiki Templates that take big chunks of formatting code and replace it with a simple template. Most page templates use wiki templates in their construction.

For regular contributors you may find the Wiki Swiss Tool useful, it is a helper program that includes one click page template copying that can make editing faster.

And remember, if you aren't comfortable using templates, please feel free to post the information in a way that is comfortable to you. Be aware though that someone may come along and edit it into a template later on. See Page Template Template for the general template layout.

To quickly create a page with the appropriate template, see:
