Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-07-21 08:04:10 UTC
Templates used on this page:

* Template:4x4 type square/T/leuksman/all/show/y
* Template:4x4 type square/T/more
* Template:4x4 type square/T001
* Template:4x4 type square/T011
* Template:Anchor

The listed templates are those known with title - "rcid" (?). Nevertheless the
page is using also some "nested variable templates" as:

* 4x4 type square/T/leuksman/all/show/{{{SHOWORDER2}}}
* 4x4 type square/T/leuksman/all/show/{{{SHOWORDER3}}}
* 4x4 type square/T/leuksman/all/show/{{{SHOWORDER4}}}
* 4x4 type square/T/leuksman/all/show/{{{SHOWORDER6}}}
* 4x4 type square/T/leuksman/all/show/{{{SHOWORDER8}}}

- minimal: - an indication about the fact that variable templates are used
should be added
- improved: - links as
- -
4x4 type square/T/leuksman/all/show/{{{SHOWORDER2}}}] should be added

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

In plain English, this means...?
Comment 2 Tim Starling 2008-01-16 10:09:03 UTC
I think I can translate...

Some templates have titles which depend on other things. I call them dynamic template names, Gangleri calls them nested variable templates. For instance {{foo {{bar}} }}. Gangleri would like MediaWiki to track the source wikitext of the template name, for example the "foo {{bar}}" in my example. The edit page could then show a list of these dynamic template names. 

Alternatively, MediaWiki could show all possible page titles which both exist in the database and which could be formed from the static text in a given dynamic name. For instance, if the page contains "foo {{bar}}", it could show all titles which start with "Template:Foo".
