RuneScape Wiki
This article is about available templates. For policy regarding templates, see RuneScape:Template policy.

Templates are used to duplicate the same content across more than one page. Changing a template in one place will immediately propagate the changes to all the pages that use it.

This page lists templates of this wiki. You can even create a template, just as long as you are sure it will be used on many pages or will benefit the wiki in some way, and that you or another editor can document it well. For more information on templates, check out Wikipedia's template page or Wikimedia's template page.

A list of all RuneScape Wiki templates is available at All pages (Template namespace). For a list of templates, see this page. Unused templates can be found at Special:Unusedtemplates.

To insert a template into a page, type {{TemplateName}} (this is known as a tag) somewhere on the page, whether it be at the top or at the bottom or in a certain section. Every page with that tag in it will display the template text. TemplateName is the name after the colon symbol, e.g. the TemplateName for Template:Cleanup is Cleanup, so typing {{Cleanup}} will add that tag to a page.
