Alternative usage

The template has two forms depending on what pages are missing:

  • Appearance 1 text will appear on any page that has an article page but no associated metadata page.
  • Appearance 2 text will appear on a page with no associated metadata page or article page (orphaned subpages).

Appearance 1

  • The text below will appear (in hidden form, with a "show" option) on any page that has an article page but no associated metadata page.

You may see this box for one of two reasons. Either:

A - New page has been created
B - Cluster move is in progress

Click either the A or B link for further instructions.





















A - For a New Cluster use the following directions

Subpages format requires a metadata page.

Using the following instructions will complete the process of creating this article's subpages.

  1. Click the blue "metadata template" link below to create the page.
  2. On the edit page that appears paste in the article's title across from "pagename =".
  3. You might also fill out the checklist part of the form. Ignore the rest.
    For background, see Using the Subpages template Don't worry--you'll get the hang of it right away.
  4. Remember to hit Save!
Pleasecreate.gif the "metadata template".

However, you can create articles without subpages. Just delete the {{subpages}} template from the top of this page and this prompt will disappear. :) Don't feel obligated to use subpages, it's more important that you write sentences, which you can always do without writing fancy code.





















B - For a Cluster Move use the following directions

The metadata template should be moved to the new name as the first step. Please revert this move and start by using the Move Cluster link at the top left of the talk page.

The name prior to this move can be found at the following link.



















Appearance 2

  • The text below will appear on a page with no associated metadata page or article page (orphaned subpages). This is transcluded from the template {{Orphan subpage}}.
