Hello! Project Lyrics Wiki

The Hello! Project Lyrics Wiki has many templates to use; these are only a subset, representing some of the most important and commonly used ones. If you feel that a template belongs on this page, do not hesitate to add it.

  • Category:Templates should cover all templates in the wiki, categorized into the various subcategories.
  • The Template namespace (found from Special:AllPages) always has all templates in the wiki, sorted alphanumerically.

What are templates?

Wiki templates provide a means to insert the same content over and over in different (or the same) pages. This saves editors the hassle of duplicating the same text again and again, and also helps ensure consistency.

Templates are generally shown with the format required to use the template (e.g. {{stub}}). Clicking the template name takes you to the template's page, where you can see what it looks like and how it is used.

Detailed instructions on the usage of each template should exist on:

  1. a subpage using {{documentation}}; or
  2. the template page itself (inside "noinclude" tags); or
  3. the template's talk page.

For more information on templates, see Help:Templates.

Article management templates

Nominate an article for deletion

{{delete}}

Disambiguation articles

{{disambig}}

  • If you have several articles that have similar or identical names, you may wish to create a "disambiguation" page at the main article name, with the articles taking an extra phrase in brackets afterwards. For example:
The Prince <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
The Prince (frog)
The Prince (human)

Stubs

{{stub}}

  • When a page has little or no useful information, then it is likely a stub. This template will include them in Category:Article stubs, and is used to list which articles need expanding.
  • For more information, see Help:Stubs.

General wiki templates

Clear

{{clr}}, plus {{clrl}} and {{clrr}}

  • This template is used to reduce the amount of non-wikicode used on pages, replacing the code <br style="clear:both;" />. Its use should generally be avoided.
  • You can use {{clr}} instead of the HTML tag that clears space below things like images, pictures and tables, so the following stuff doesn't begin until the bottom of the image, picture or table box.
  • You can also use {{clrl}} or {{clrr}} to clear only left or right floats.

Color

{{color|<color name>}}

  • This template stores the six-digit hex code for specific color names. You can use it in the source editor in places in the html source code where color values would be used. You can also use it with other templates that have a parameter to adjust the color.
  • Note that this template just stores color hex codes, and it cannot be used to change the color of anything by itself. To change the color of text, you can use {{textc|<color hex code>|<text>}}, and to color-code lyrics, you can use {{mcolor|<member name>|<text>}}.

For

{{for|<name>|<link>}}

  • This template is used at the top of articles as a simple "for x see y" template.

Interwiki links

{{hp|<name>}}, plus {{ufg|<name>}} and {{ngp|<name>}}

Kana

{{kana|<Kanji>|<Kana>}}

  • This template is used to show katakana or hiragana above a certain kanji character or phrase. This is mostly use to indicate how a kanji character or phrase would be pronounced.

Nihongo

{{nihongo|<Romaji>|<Kanji>|<English>}}

  • This template is used to display Japanese characters and pronunciation.

Ref and Note

{{ref|<#>|<[N#]>}} and {{note|<#>}}

  • These templates are used together for footnotes.

Reflist

{{reflist}}

  • This template can be used in place of <references /> to create a reference list in small font for an article.
  • Note that there is no consensus that small font size should always be used for all references; when normal-sized font is more appropriate on an article, use <references /> instead.

Right-aligned Table of Contents

{{tocright}}

  • This template floats the table of contents (toc) on the right. It should only be used when absolutely necessary, to keep consistent design.

Scrollbox

{{scrollbox|<content>}}

  • This template is used to create a scrolling box.

See Also

{{SeeAlso|<name>}}

  • This template is used on a page to link to a related article.

T is for template

{{t|<template>}}

  • This template allows you to show example template code (with a link to the templates) without using the template itself. It is used extensively on this page.

Where you may find more templates

  • Fandom Templates
  • Wikipedia; may be copied with the proper acknowledgment, but some need tweaking to work properly on the Hello! Project Lyrics Wiki, so use a Fandom template if possible.
