Help:Templates

Templates are like shortcuts to insert and style stuff. An advantage of using them is that you can keep consistent formatting, because to change how something that uses a template looks you only need to change the temple, not every individual appearance of that thing in the wiki!

Usage: {{Abbr|ABBREVIATION|definition}}.
