Page Templates

To make My Little Wiki even easier to use for everyone, we thought it might be a good idea to use templates when adding some information. This means that every pony page you click on will be laid out the same way, and therefore faster to navigate around.

Pony Pages

Gusty is a good example of the layout we are after - please use her page as a reference ^_^

[[Image:imagename.jpg|thumb|image description]]

== Pony Name ==

==== Pony Stats ====


*'''Body Colour:'''

*'''Hair Colour:'''

*'''Eye Colour:'''




  • such as ribbon color, sticker, brush comb, etc.
  • General description, interesting facts

==== Back Card Stories ====

==== Media Appearances ====

==Macau ???==

  • Variations with the same name, ie further country specific varients, so softs, etc

Use this tag to keep thumb nailed images from flowing over the wrong text when you have more images than text

  • <br style="clear: both" />

== See also ==

*Baby ??pony

*?? Playset

*G3 ??pony

  • At the near bottom of a ponies page add links to similarly named ponies, different of a pony with the same name, a ponies baby or mommy, playsets a pony has appeared in, a ponies friend, etc.


Adding ponies to categories is the easiest way to organize ponies into every possible grouping you can think of. The categories are ordered from the biggest category a pony belongs to to the very smallest group.

  • Good example can be change for each generation.

[[Category: Generation 1]]

[[Category: G1 Adult Ponies]]

[[Category: G1 Earth Ponies]]

[[Category: G1 Yellow Ponies]]

[[Category: Collector Ponies]]

[[Category: Year One (1982-1983)]]

  • Skydancer, for example fits into all these categories:

[[Category: Generation 1]]

[[Category: G1 Adult Ponies]]

[[Category: G1 Pegasus Ponies]]

[[Category: G1 Yellow Ponies]]

[[Category: G1 Rainbow Ponies]]

  • Baby Seapony Sea Star:

[[Category: Generation 1]]

[[Category: G1 Baby Ponies]]

[[Category: Sea Ponies]]

  • Baby Sparkle Gusty:

[[Category: G3 Adult Ponies]]

Thanks for taking the time to make My Little Wiki easier to navigate :-)

With all the re-used pony names, there is a serious need for disambiguation. There are now disambiguation templates to go at the top of pages that need disambiguation.

The pipes -> ||| separate the phrases that fill in the pre-written templates.

There are two templates, one for a page that only needs to be disambiguated from one other, and one for a page that needs to be disambiguated from more than one other page.

Two page disambiguation

G3 Island Rainbow and G4 Island Rainbow are two pages that are disambiguated with the disambig-two tag.

This is how the tag is used on G4 Island Rainbow's page.

{{disambig-two|Generation 4 Island Rainbow|Generation 3 Island Rainbow|G3 Island Rainbow}}

This is how the wiki renders that tag:

This article is about Generation 4 Island Rainbow. For "Generation 3 Island Rainbow", see G3 Island Rainbow.

Multiple page disambiguation

This is the template tag for a page with more than other page it needs to be disambiguated from, the tag is disambig-multiple.

This is how it's used for G3 Rainbow Dash.

{{disambig-multiple|Generation 3 Rainbow Dash|Rainbow Dash|Rainbow Dash}}

This is how the wiki renders that tag:

This article is about Generation 3 Rainbow Dash. For other incarnations of "Rainbow Dash", see Rainbow Dash (disambiguation).

Page Title (disambiguation)

We are going to redirect all these pages Category:Disambiguation_pages to another page with (disambiguation) in the title.

E.g., Rainbow Dash now redirects to Rainbow Dash (disambiguation)
