  • Hej,

    I have a test wiki for myself where I created an template which I want to use in my Userpage. The problem is that I don't know how to integrate it. Note: The wiki has a german suffix (de) and wiki-site is not a wiki, just an example, like Sitename.

    I tried
    {{w:c:de.wiki-site:Sitename}}
    without success.

    Thanks.

    • IIRC, embedding templates like that only works if the template is on Community Central. It causes too much strain on the servers if they let people do it from all wikis.

    • So how do I fix it so it works for me?

    • You can create the page Template:User:ThaumicTom here on Community Central and use it on other wikis by doing

      {{w:User:ThaumicTom}}

    • So I have no other choice than this?

    • Nope, unfortunately not.

    • If you try to create an interwiki template, the following error will appear:

      [Template fetch failed for //community.wikia.com/wiki/Template:c:pixelgun:Cat1?action=render]

      Also, maybe it's just me, but do Community Central templates with parameters fully work?

    • Parameters do not work with global templates.

      The general best solution I've seen is to create pages like Template:User:VegaDark/es and add them to Spanish wikis with
      {{w:User:VegaDark/es}}

    • Parameters work with global templates if you use them as {{raw:w:Your template}} (although I can assume that puts a heavier load on the servers). I've seen some sister wikis use scary transclusion between themselves but I don't think that's an option that can be requested anymore.
