In wiki syntax, a template is identified by a page surrounded by curly brackets ({{ ... }}). There is a template language that allows you to build a page which you can pass variable to. Examples of template pages are:

  • a box template to create the pedagogical boxes (called instructional Devices (iDevices) in WikiEducator ) - like activities
  • a Footer template which also generates an APA style reference is shown below:
<references />
<div style="font-family: menu,Arial; border: 1px solid #0000FF;font-size: x-small; background-color: #E6F2FF;">
 from {{fullurl:{{PAGENAME}}}}</div>

and call it at the bottom of a wiki page using


The {{1}} allows you to pass a parameter to the template, in this case "Me" (parameters are searated by a | )
