Templates and categoriesEdit

Maybe I'm missing something, but for some reason the CategorySelect tool doesn't show on my template pages. I can still add categories using brackets, but its's kind of annoying. How do I enable it? Jannes e 14:52, March 26, 2010 (UTC)



Hi there.

In the template using page it says that Any page can be a template. I have some pages already in my wiki and I would like to include them in other pages, as it is was a template, but it is not. How can I do what I want?

Yup - for example a page called "Foo": to include this in another page, you'd type {{:Foo}}. For "Help:Foo", you'd type {{Help:Foo}}. Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 14:35, November 5, 2009 (UTC)
Nice. Thank you. Nevertheless, I would like to create a new page from an existing one. If I ever use the Page schema, it will insert kind of a link to that page... I want to be able to edit it too. I have tried copy/pasting, but the local links get modified... is it clear? ;)

Thanks for your answer...
