My MediaWiki site is currently using v1.24.4.

I don't seem to have many templates installed, and some very important ones seem to be missing. For example, I can't use the Reference List template. If I do put references in an article, with {{reflist}} at the bottom, the template comes across as a redlink:


Are templates something that have to be installed separately? And if so, how do I go about it.

My site is hosted by DreamHost.

  • Yes Templates have to be installed separately, see Mediawiki:Help:Templates
