Templates in this category are used to tag a page as being of a certain "type", e.g. "Ability", "Location", etc. They are meant to be used at the very top of pages and answer a question like "What the heck is Winterspring? Some engineering gizmo? — Oh, it's a Location." at a glance.

  • This concept is not adopted throughout the entirety of WoWWiki.
  • Many inline templates that were in this category were moved to Category:WoW utility templates.

To put a template in Category:Article type templates:

  • Use <noinclude>[[Category:Article type templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]</noinclude>. The "<noinclude>" tags are necessary because without them, you end up categorizing all pages using the template in the template category! Please also note the |{{PAGENAME}}.
  • If your template is meant to be used in-line, make sure that there are no line feeds after </noinclude>. If there are, it may work in flowing text, but it will misbehave in bullet lists. You can have as many line feeds as you like between the noinclude tags though:
<noinclude>[[Category:Article type templates|{{PAGENAME}}]]
</noinclude>Text or graphic that is meant to be used in-line
  • Remember that a template can be put in multiple categories if it belongs to them all!
  • Or, if this is not quite the right category, go back to Category:Templates and try to find a better suited subcategory.
