Help

MSG:

A template modifier, i.e. {{msg:stub}} shows

{{Stub}}


The use of msg has an effect when a template name clashes with a magic word. For example, if [[Template:CURRENTMONTHNAME]] contained "Test", then {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} would display "July" but {{msg:CURRENTMONTHNAME}} would display "Test".

SUBST:

A template modifier. Replaces the reference to the template (e.g. {{subst:template}}) with the content of the template.

e.g. {{subst:stub}} copies the {{stub}} contents below to the article, without using the template.

This article is a stub. You can help Wikimedia by expanding it.

SUBST: can be helpful to avoid the overuse of meta-templates.

MSGNW:

A template modifier. Causes the template source to be pasted.

So <pre>{{msgnw:stub}}</pre> outputs:


{{msgnw:stub}}


__END__

Allows for trailing whitespace to be deliberately included in the page save.

INT:

A special template. Used for UI messages, works the same as "No Subject - Encyclopedia of Psychoanalysis".

{{INT:mainpage}} gives the content of No Subject - Encyclopedia of Psychoanalysis:main_page:
Main Page

SITENAME

A variable.

No Subject - Encyclopedia of Psychoanalysis

NS:

A special template. Gets the name of a given namespace number.

{{NS:4}} gives:
Project

LOCALURL:

A special template. Gets the local URL of the given page.

{{localurl:Help:Magic words|section=0}}

yields

/index.php?title=Help:Magic_words&section=0

LOCALURLE:

A special template. Gets the local URL of the given page.

{{localurle:Help:Magic words|section=0}}

yields

/index.php?title=Help:Magic_words&section=0

SERVER

A variable. {{SERVER}} produces https://nosubject.com

GRAMMAR:

Useful for inflected languages to derive word forms. Usage: {{grammar:case|word}}, cases in which this could be used depend on the specific language.

E. g. in Czech language, {{grammar:1sg|Wikipedie}} outputs Wikipedie, while {{grammar:7sg|Wikipedie}} outputs Wikipedií.
