{{Size
| pages = <!-- necessary. plain number of pages, leave blank if unknown -->
| statistics URL = <!-- optional. external link to statistics page -->
| wiki factor = <!-- optional. plain wiki factor value -->
| wiki factor URL = <!-- optional. external link to data base for wiki factor calc. -->

(Please check against Template:NewWiki boilerplate.)

How to get size information

Most wiki engines provide statistics somewhere including a page count. Here's how to find them for various wiki engines (although it can also depend on version)

  1. MediaWiki: Replace Special:Recentchanges with Special:Statistics
We can also add MediaWiki listings to the http://s23.org/wikistats/mediawikis_html.php system which tracks various wiki stats
  1. MoinMoin: Replace RecentChanges with SystemInfo or System_Info
  2. UseModWiki: Replace ?RecentChanges with ?action=index
  3. Pbwiki: Replace any page name with AllPages
  4. PhpWiki: an option: Search for letter "e" in all Titles
  5. ProWiki: Replace ?RecentChanges with ?action=spx
  6. PmWiki: Search for / and scroll to the bottom (maybe searching for main/ would be better)
  7. Tikiwiki: Replace ending /tiki-lastchanges.php with /tiki-stats.php
  8. Twiki: Replace /WebChanges with /WebIndex
  9. Oddmuse: In RecentChanges click on 1 day and replace ?action=rc;days=1;all=0;showedit=0 with ?action=index
  10. Wikispaces: replace /changes ending the recent changes url with /pagelist
