Templategamebug-1

This is what is happening.

Yeah, it's me again. I tried to make this template for game articles, and I got the majority of code from the Gravity Falls Wiki. When I changed the code to the specifics I wanted, a bug occurred. For some reason the sections Genre and Maker wouldn't appear. I tried all the usually things, like making sure the source code was correct, but I found nothing wrong. The other sections appear, and they have the EXACT same coding as Genre and Maker.

Templategamebug-2

The sections appear on the Template page.

What the heck is happening; can someone help me?

Here's the code for the Genre and Maker sections:

|- style="border-top: 1px solid #999; border-bottom: 1px solid #999; text-align:left;"
{{#if: {{{type|<noinclude>-</noinclude>}}} |
! Genre
{{!}} {{{genre}}}
{{!}}-
}}

|- style="border-top: 1px solid #999; border-bottom: 1px solid #999; text-align:left;"
{{#if: {{{|<noinclude>-</noinclude>}}} |
! Created by
{{!}} {{{maker}}}
{{!}}-
}}

All fixed. I also changed Image: to File:. I'm not 100% sure but I believe there was a change in MediaWiki that stopped supporting Image prefixes in favour of File, probably a change in namespace name. Perhaps an editor who remember why it was changed might stumble across this forum and give you a better explanation, but to be on the safe side try an use File from now on.
