Template Suggestions

Templates are a particular part of wiki markup used on WikiTree to insert feature boxes on profiles and for special formatting.
  • For beginners (work on the Easy Suggestions):
To experiment with one, try putting {{Unsourced}} above the == Biography == headline on a profile's edit page and preview the changes.
  • For Intermediate and Advanced Suggestions, WikiTree members need to have advanced WikiTree skills to work on templates and these suggestions.
To work on these issues, you must know what templates are and how they are used in WikiTree. See these pages for further description of the issues involved in these suggestions. WikiTree members need to have advanced WikiTree skills to work on templates.
