FANDOM


There are many templates in use in Hazbin Hotel Wiki; these are only a subset, representing some of the most important and commonly used ones. If you feel that a template belongs on this page, do not hesitate to add it.

  • Category:Templates should cover all templates in the wiki.
  • The Template namespace (found from Special:AllPages) always has all templates in the wiki, sorted alphanumerically.

What are templates?

Wiki templates provide a means to insert the same content over and over in different (or the same) pages. This saves editors the hassle of duplicating the same text again and again, and also helps ensure consistency.

Templates are generally shown with the format required to use the template (e.g. {{delete}}). Clicking the template name takes you to the template's page, where you can see what it looks like and how it is used.

Detailed instructions on the usage of each template should exist on:

  1. a subpage using {{documentation}}; or
  2. the template page itself (inside "noinclude" tags); or
  3. the template's talk page.

For more information on templates, see Help:Templates.

Article management templates

Nominate an article for deletion

{{delete}}

Disambiguation articles

{{disambig}}

  • If you have several articles that have similar or identical names, you may wish to create a "disambiguation" page at the main article name, with the articles taking an extra phrase in brackets afterward. For example:
The Prince <-- disambiguation page, with links to:
The Prince (frog)
The Prince (human)

Identifying stub articles

{{stub}}

  • If the article is lacking in information or in need of improvement, this template can be added at the top of the page.
  • Using {{stub}} marks an article as a stub page by adding a banner to the article and categorizing it under Category:Article stubs.
  • For more information, see Help:Stub.

Notice for outdated content

{{old}}

  • If the article has information from early releases, an outdated source (eg. Patreon), is part of an older creation, or needs to be updated based on the current canon, this template can be added at the top of the page.
  • Using {{old}} categorizes the article under Category:Articles with outdated content.

General wiki templates

Main articles

Reference list

{{reflist}}
