W E L C O M E

The purpose of this template studio is to enhance pages of this wiki community so that we all can have a better wiki experience. Hence the tagline of this store, "bringing pages to life."

For those who do not know how to code, and for those who do know but don't have time, this is the place you can come to for all of your templates needs.


A B O U T

From the time I've been introduced to the wikia community, I've always been interested in the use of templates. They can come in many different styles, but each has it's own way to bring out the essence of a page.

E X P E R I E N C E

My past experience in this field has given me a lot of knowledge about wiki and its background code. Some applications of my knowledge include making the front page of this wiki, making the front page of the Keefe Wiki, and working on front pages of several other wikis. Also, being the wiki of my creation, the Keefe Wiki's coding was mostly done by me.

I have also created the characters navigation template and the references list template for the main Keeper of the Lost Cities Wiki, both of which are being used mainstream.

S E R V I C E S

Though I do have quite an arsenal of template and coding knowledge, I prefer to use it for the greater good. Thus, I created this studio. Here, anybody can ask for any template type, and I can make it for them over the course of a few business days (depending on my activity level and the difficulty of the job).

To request a template, all you need to do is message me, or comment on this page about it.

You will need to list the following:

  • Template Type (Refer to the guide below if you are unsure on what this is)
  • Purpose
  • Where it will be displayed
  • Files or certain codes you would like on it (optional)



Please note that all orders will be kept in a log on this wiki, so keep in mind that certain (not all, private ones will be kept private) order details will stay on this site.

Templates are often used to replicate commonly used forms of content, and to style article pages to suit the wiki's needs and themes.

There are multiple types of templates that one can make, them being:

Infoboxes are templates that are usually on the side of article pages; they shortlist the important information covered in the entire article. It is a good alternative to scrolling through pages and pages of information.

Infobox Album (There are different mainstream wikia templates for infoboxes)
Example

Often times, famous quotes regarding the subject are at the top [or bottom] of articles. They may also be placed at the top of certain headings, to make each section stand out more.

Main Wikia Template
Example

Navboxes, more formally known as navigation boxes, help users—especially new ones— navigate from one article to the next. This is especially helpful when one wants to see all pages of a similar type.

Main Wikia Template
Example

Notices are placed on article pages to show the status of the page. For example, if a page is under review, or is a stub, this type of template can be placed at the top.

Main Wikia Template
Example

These templates link to other articles which relate to the same subject. Some keywords used in these templates include "See also" and "You may."

Example

Infoicon templates create small icons that go with certain text phrases on wikia.

Example

Scroll boxes are meant to contain a large amount of text in a small space. They do so by allowing users to scroll through the text box.

Example

When creating an article, one often refers to certain important media or sites in order to generate good content. These citations, marked by the <ref> and </ref> tags, can be organized into a list of references, done by this type of template.

Main Information Page Example

Images and videos can be organized into galleries, slideshows, and sliders via this type of template.

Example

Lots of numbers need a lot of analysis. One way to make this easier is to use data templates. These are often made in the form of tables and charts.

Example

Being the most widely known template type, design templates play a huge role in user navigation through the wiki. Often times, these are the templates that go on the front pages of wikis, and profiles, etc. They are most often found on Fanon wikis (like this one) rather than factual wikis (like the mainstream KotLC one). These are the templates I expect to be most popular in terms of orders.

Example

Navigation templates are actually an over-arching branch of templates, encompassing the navboxes as well as the context-link templates.

All templates that do not appear on article pages are in this category. They often appear on message walls, profiles, and file descriptions.

Example

  • Unknown

All templates not marked as any of the above types are in the "Unknown" category.

Please note that these are simplified descriptions of the various template types, and the official source for this is Help:Template Types.

Besides coding, my interests in templates have also led me to discover a multitude of FANDOM codes that are useful to wiki development in terms of scaling and user experience and retention. So even if you are not looking for a designer template in particular, you can still ask me questions regarding wikia site-wide coding.

I also have a cover store on this wiki, so please check that out too! There, instead of making templates, I make high-quality cover images for whatever you would like!
