How can templates be used on talk pages, e.g., I tried {{subst:welcome}} on a new user's talk page, but it didn't work. -- Jtneill - Talk 00:17, 10 June 2008 (UTC)
• OK, I found that by editing the thread, the syntax was a transclusion: {{Hello|Jtneill|'''Just a demo that templates work on talk pages. This is our Hello template}}. Thanks, Wayne. -- Jtneill - Talk 13:44, 11 June 2008 (UTC)
