It's a PITA and unfortunately (unlike extensions or media files) there is no repository of canned templates. Templates load other templates which load others in turn, etc. Templates are there to sabotage the efforts of anyone who just wants to edit their own wiki, instead taking them over to the coder side. By the way Wikia has its own template repository, ...

In short: changing your theme very well might affect your rankings. This might be caused by (a combination of) the aspects below: The theme is likely to contain multiple changes to the way on-page elements like h1 and img are placed in the source code. Perhaps it will even change the way that elements like rel="canonical" are handled. Also, the way in ...

Web sites are more than just their template. You also need to consider hosting costs, domain name registration costs, secure server certificates, and more. One assumes that you have at least some of that covered and are at the design phase. You may want to explore using WordPress to run your site. You can set up a site at wordpress.com and pay just a ...

You would write the following in Template:PMC: [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC{{{1}}}/ PMC {{{1}}}] And then call it with {{PMC|2824929}}. Of course this doesn't verify that the number is valid or even that one has been provided.

You will get slammed. I checked the site you linked. It appears to be boiler plate RSS feed stuff which Google will de-list and at least never rank. We get these questions all the time. The answer is this. Duplicate content without attribution will get a site in serious trouble. Both sites. If you are copying content without permission, then you will be ...

The wikitext {{{1}}} renders as <blockquote>{{#tag:nowiki|{{{2}}}}}</blockquote> should do the job ({{#tag}} turns XML-style tags into normal parserfuncions, ie. flips the evaluation order).

Anagio says: If it looks ok in Chrome, FireFox, Safari, and IE while logged out I think it's ok. If you really want to fix it, you'll need to view the CSS and HTML in Chrome Developer Tool or FireBug while logged in begin deleting some of the links to manage the blog etc and see which is causing the sidebar to be pushed down. But if it's only visible to ...

The templates are a combination of code (html, js, css) and variables. The whole idea is that the variables should be replaced with different values with each campaign afterwards. While the rest of the code remains the same. The variables could be of different types (i.e. image upload, hyperlink, text, number, dropdown) Let me give the simplest example ...

Try sharing the template link on "custom reports" -->"actions"--->"Share". The custom report needs to be shared. Sharing the dashboard itself will not include custom reports.

If you have SMW, the solution is extremely simple. You can list the pages in question by adding them to a specific category. The category members can then be listed in the format you prefer. A simple list, suitable e.g. for use in the middle of text or for a non-distracting navigation box, is then as simple as {{#ask: [[Category:Finnish]] | format=list }}. ...

Make sure the ParserFunctions extension is installed. Then put the following in a template, such as Template:Iftest {{#if: {{{CODE|}}} | [[CODE-{{{CODE}}}]] | (not applicable) }} If CODE-parameter is empty or not present you get (not applicable). i.e. {{Iftest|CODE=123}} gives [[CODE-123]] {{Iftest|CODE=}} gives (not applicable) {{Iftest}} gives (not ...

I also posted the same question at the MediaWiki Project Support Desk page, and recently got an answer. They say that adding an auxiliary category is a way to go, however it may require some time to work because of tight cooperation with internal background jobs: {{#if: {{{foo2|}}} | <p style="color: red;">The template is under construction.</p> ...

Dump it, apply for a license, download their current, up-to-date package, install it and proceed from there. If you liked what you saw, then your purchased install will be legitimate. Proceeding with the current state of affairs without purchasing the template is theft and often Karmic in that when you run into problems in implementation, you have no ...

The answer is yes. Search engine algorithms don't require exactly the same layout and HTML code to detect duplicates, same title tag + meta description + h1 + <p>'s is more than enough for them. As a webmaster duplicate description is a no no. However if your template changes do not affect URLs, Having a default template for a given page and being ...
