WorldPagetemplatesPage templates

Also see the Cruising Wiki's Wiki Editor's Guide and Style Guide.

There are two kinds of templates in this wiki: Page templates, described in this page, and Embeddable templates, described in a separate page Help:Embeddable templates.

There are page templates for the most common pages or articles used in the CruisersWiki. Page templates contain all the needed wiki code but no specific information. To make a new page or article first create it, then select the appropriate template from the table below and click on the template page, then click on the view source (top of page) and copy the template's Wiki-code from the editor to paste in a newly created page.

Please DO NOT edit/change the templates on these "template" pages. You can add/delete/edit items in the new page that you create.

Embeddable templates are small snippets of wiki code enclosed in 2 curly brackets ({{code}}), some of them with parameters, that provide convenient shortcuts to frequently used code sequences. An example is the familiar Coord Template {{Coord|DD|M.M|N/S|DD|M.M|E/W|}}.

Also, keep in mind that templates are Protected which means that you cannot alter it. However, if you think that any changes to the template are desirable, contact the wiki administrators by making an entry describing the proposed changes and your reason in its corresponding Discussion Page (second right button at the top of this page).

Use of Templates

Instructions

Specific instructions are colored Green. In "Edit" mode, after you copy a template in a new page, these will appear as:

{{GreenText|Please remove the below item if you have provided some content material for this page}}

and are to be removed.

Substitute Items

Items in Magenta are to be substituted. In "Edit" mode, after you copy a template in a new page, these will appear either as:

{{MagentaText|xx}}

or as

<span style="color:Magenta">xx</span>

These are to be replaced with your information. Sometimes you may not have this information, in this case leave them alone for the next editor.

Major Page Templates

We are in the process of changing the page templates.

If there is only one entry in the following table, this links to the newest template. The rest of the table lists twoeach one it lists two links: the first is to the traditional template older while the second is to a newer corresponding version that makes extensive use of embeddable templates. This new version is easier and less error-prone than its corresponding traditional template. Both of these will be replaced by one page template per category.

Traditional Newer Notes
Region Region2 Generic regions - gulfs, lakes. For example North Atlantic, Mediterranean, Black Sea, etc.
Passage For example Aegean to West Mediterranean Passages, Trans-Atlantic, Europe to Caribbean, etc.
Country Countries (non-island), states, territories & provinces. For example France, Australia, California, Queensland, Russia, etc.
Island Country Single island or small island group countries. For example Malta, Madagascar, and many Caribbean islands like Barbados, St Lucia, etc.
Island Group Island Group2 Group of islands. For example Caribbean, Balearics, etc.
Island Island2 Other islands (not countries). For example Sardinia, Samos, Tahiti, Bonifacio, etc.
Port/Stop Port/Stop2 Ports and anchorages meriting a separate page. For example Pythagorio, Almeria, Bodrum, Castelsardo, etc.
Marina/Yacht Club Marina/Yacht Club2 For example Samos Marina, Club del Mar Marina, Bodrum Marina, etc.
Canal Canal2 For example Corinth Canal, Crinan Canal, etc.

NOTE: Some of the headings in a template may not be appropriate for a specific page: Do not feel compelled to use them.

Other Useful Page Templates

Co-ordinates

Enter co-ordinates in a page using the "template-call" as shown immediately below this line (in bold):

[[image:World_icon.png]] {{Coord|DD|M.M|N/S|DD|M.M|E/W|}}

Copy the above template (shown in bold) and paste it into the Wiki page editor, fill in the co-ords details and SAVE the edit (don't forget to select either N or S, and E or W). This template will automatically give a link to a GeoHack page with various online geo resources related to the position - resources like Google Earth, MapTech (marine chart), GoogleMaps and access to photos of the position's area on Panoramio, etc.

Example: [[image:World_icon.png]] {{Coord|37|43.6|N|26|50.6|W|}} will show as: World icon.png 37°43.6′N, 26°50.6′W after saving the edit (linking to the "geo" resources page).


Co-ordinates Conversion Help - (D & M & S) - Divide the seconds by 60 to get the decimal value of minutes for the GPS format of |DD|M.M|

Small info.png (Click links for more information)
World icon.png
DD°M.M′N/S, DD°M.M′E/W
Photo icon.png
[ Photo gallery]
Chart icon.png
[ Local chartlet]

Copy the template below:

{| class="infobox bordered" style="width: 28em; text-align: left; font-size: 85%;"
|-
| colspan="2" style="text-align:center; font-size: smaller;" | {{Small info}} (''Click links for more information'')
|-
! <center>[[image:World_icon.png]]</center>
| {{Coord|DD|M.M|N/S|DD|M.M|E/W|}}
|-
! <center>[[image:Photo_icon.png]]</center>
| [ Photo gallery]
|-
! <center>[[image:Chart_icon.png]]</center>
| [ Local chartlet]
|}

  • Paste the template to a page and enter the coordinates (as explained in the "Coordinates Template" above) and "Save".
  • Click on the coordinates link that will take you to the "Geohack" page.
  • Click on "Panoramio" (under photo links) and set the photo "map" for the coords. When correct (select "show all photos"), copy the Panoramio URL and paste to MS Notepad.
  • Return to the Geohack page and click on "MapTech" for the local "chartlet". Use zooming, etc., to select the best chartlet and copy the MapTech URL.
  • Return to the Cruising Wiki page containing the Infobox template and add these URLs for the Photos and Chartlet.

The above guide is the same for existing Infobox templates on pages that have already been set up.

The Co-ordinates Info is also implemented as an embeddable template, see Template:Infobox/doc.

General (for use within pages/sections)

Template copy instructions:

Tables

Wiki table markup summary (for advanced users)

{|
table start
|+
table caption, optional; only between table start and first table row
|-
table row, optional on first row -- wiki engine assumes the first row
! 
table header cell, optional. Consecutive table header cells may be added on same line separated by double marks (!!) or start on new lines, each with its own single mark (!).
|
table data cell, required! Consecutive table data cells may be added on same line separated by double marks (||) or start on new lines, each with its own single mark (|).
|}
table end
  • The above marks must start on a new line except the double || and !! for optionally adding consecutive cells to a line. However, blank spaces at the beginning of a line are ignored.
  • XHTML attributes. Each mark, except table end, optionally accepts one or more XHTML attributes. Attributes must be on the same line as the mark. Separate attributes from each other with a single space.
    • Cells and caption (| or ||, ! or !!, and |+) hold content. So separate any attributes from content with a single pipe (|). Cell content may follow on same line or on following lines.
    • Table and row marks ({| and |-) do not directly hold content. Do not add pipe (|) after their optional attributes. If you erroneously add a pipe after attributes for the table mark or row mark the parser will delete it and your final attribute if it was touching the erroneous pipe!
  • Content may (a) follow its cell mark on the same line after any optional XHTML attributes or (b) on lines below the cell mark. Content that uses wiki markup that itself needs to start on a new line, such as lists, headings, or nested tables, must be on its own new line.
  • Escaping to insert a pipe (|) character into a table use the <nowiki> markup
