The Basics

Sometimes it is easy to forgot the syntax of even the simplest and most commonly-used wikitext commands. Here are some links to useful resources.

Difficult Concepts

I have trouble remembering the syntax for many of the parser functions and magic words that I use often, so I am building this library of examples that I can quickly copy from.

#if

{{#if: test string 
| value if test string is not empty
| value if test string is empty (or only white space)
}}

#switch

{{#switch: {{{variable}}}
| if_it_is_this=    do this
                    and this
                    and this too

| if_it_is_that=    just do this

| if_it_is_me
| or_if_it_is_you=  do this

| #default=         just do this instead, as it wasn't any of them
}}
