How to make a new Template

For certain purposes like if you want to maintain some works on redundant pages without efforts, you may need to write a Template of your page.

A template is just like a page, so a "make-it-easy" template would reside at the URL:

Create it and copy and paste the wiki markup for what you have already done relating to "Make-it-easy" into it and save it. Then where you want to include the template on any other page just use {{Make-it-easy}}.


Templates are great at keeping things looking consistent. If you are new, you may not be ready to create them, but don't worry, they are very easy to use. Just add the contents in the "what to type" column and you will get the text in the "What it looks like" column inserted on the page.

Click on the template name for usage options that may not be apparent, translators should see Languages
