Hi, maybe it's only for admin to use it, but I would like a tutorial on how to create and use a template. I know the {{template name}} thing, for simple template like {{List Ranges}} it's easy to understand and use.

But I don't know how it can change an article's data with complexe template. For exemple the NDS compatibility template {{Slot-1 Compatibility}} use {{{1}}}, {{{2}}}. Is that a mask for data written by a user, so if you change the template the data filled by a user is left as is ? What the subst: stand for ?

Maybe you are still testing it because I didn't see this template in the NDS compatibility list article.

The Wikimedia's help page about templates might be of help. But I guess having a short description in GBAtemp's wiki wouldn't hurt either.
Anyway, {{{1}}} means the first parameter given to the template, {{{2}}} means the second parameter, etc. So if you call the template like this {{Template|parameter1|parameter2}}, {{{1}}} will be replaced with parameter1, and {{{2}}} is replaced with parameter2. Don't remember what subst: is though... --Mythril 13:54, 5 March 2007 (CET)
