See also: template: Wiki boilerplate, template: Size, and specifically for Wikia-hosted wiki sites: template: Wikia boilerplate.

Template: Wiki boilerplate is the generic boilerplate template used for creating a standardised infobox for articles about wiki SITES here on WikiIndex. It is suitable for all wiki site articles, and is applicable to act as a guide for most wiki engine schemas, including MediaWiki. For Fandom-specific wiki articles powered by Wikia (Fandom), use: template: Wikia boilerplate (currently only available in English). For wiki sites powered by all other wiki engines, please amend the requested field answers to their best fit. This boilerplate template has been manually translated from this specific boilerplate into a few other selected wiki languages as listed at the bottom of this page, based on standard MediaWiki terminology. Please make any changes or updates as required, and please create a new boilerplate (including the below red links) in a different language if desired. It should be noted, for ALL MediaWiki sites (apart from early software versions), all non-English wiki sites will automatically translate all SpecialPages standard English URLs into the actual language as used on said non-English wiki site. All infobox external URLs must start with http:// or https://, whereas prose links in the description can also use any existing interwiki link for external sites, along with conventional 'internal' wikilinks.

Please note: when adding and / or amending a date for the field containing the backup file, or the placements for page count and / or wikiFactor (wF), please use the YYYY-MM-DD schema, which is the universal and international ISO 8601 date extended format.

;''Description
<!-- remove this 'hidden text' comment (between <!-- and -->) after:
Full and factual description of wiki site here, including detail on wiki subject matter, founder and / or owner, history, community 
of people on wiki, wiki software and host, independent awards or nominations, and any problems such as technical problems or user 
complaints, 'tag' specific subject words to auto-include them into categories as follows: {{tag|notable subject}}.  (The tag template 
is used to make a word in the text into wikilink AND auto-include into the category of that same name).  Although not required, 
please try to support any commentary with inline references to valid external citations.

;''See also
List any additional articles here on WikiIndex that may be relevant or related to this specific wiki site (if any)

;''References
<References/><!--use for inline <ref>citation URL</ref> sources (if any)-->

;''External links
{{WikiApiary}}<!--only for MediaWiki powered wiki sites-->
*[https://WikiParentURL.org WikiParentURL.org] — official 'parent' website of wiki (if any)
*{{Wp|{{PAGENAME}}}} — on the [[English Wikipedia]]
OFFICIAL web forums, and social media sites which DIRECTLY support the actual wiki site may also be included.
Off-topic links are NOT allowed; they will be treated a spam, and will be removed.

{{Multi-language ArticleProject}} - for 'navigational' templates used to link different language versions of the same wiki,
such as Wikipedia, Uncyclopedia, etc, or if a single subject has many differing wikis, such as Star Wars or Final Fantasy.

If a tagable category name does not appear in the description prose text, use and amend the '[[Category:FirstAdditional]]' etc 
at the BOTTOM of the page edit box to manually add categories.  Please list all skin categories (default category first) after 
additional subject categories (found at '/Special:Version').  Finally, add the year of founding, like so... -->
[[Category:FirstAdditional]]
[[Category:SecondAdditional]]
[[Category:Vector]]<!--skin categories, default skin first-->
[[Category:Monobook]]
[[Category:Timeless]]
[[Category:Founded in YYYY]]<!--Special:AncientPages, or https://YourWikiURL.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&dir=prev&action=history-->

Select and highlight the text above in the blue/grey 'boilerplate', select copy the highlighted text (Ctrl-c, or -c on your keyboard), and then paste (Ctrl-c or -v) it at the top of the edit box of the relevant wiki site article, then amend the fields to the right of the = sign with the requested information on the specific wiki site. Don't forget to click on the 'Show preview' button (alt-p (PC) or shift-esc-p (Mac) on your keyboard) to verify your edited detail is correct before saving (alt-s [PC] or shift-esc-s [Mac]).
