Forums: Index Watercooler Dual template documentation

Templates on this wiki have their installation described in documentation, as they should.

But, then, these templates will be copied to others' wikis. And then, they will have to be described - in a different context entirely. No Template:SPW, no "How to install", no nothing - the subject is now "how to use".

If we assume that users will copy these templates to other wikis verbatim, as they should, then they should also have documentation to copy verbatim. This documentation should be located at /doc, so that the templates and their documentation can be copied from the same pagename to the same pagename.

What's currently located on this wiki at /doc should be moved to a different location, such as /templatesdoc. Template:Documentation on this wiki can be modified to suit, displaying only /templatesdoc, or displaying both /doc and /templatesdoc in some intelligent manner.

Agree/disagree? I would be happy to undertake this task myself. Henstepl (talk) 00:20, August 18, 2017 (UTC)

Sounds like a good idea, but maybe you should also post the proposal at Forum:Watercooler and I will advertise it with a wiki-wide notice. You should also leave a message with Kirkburn, since he is technically the bureaucrat of this wiki even though he's Fandom staff. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 17 Aug 2017 4:28 PM Pacific
