These templates serve as sources of documentation for other templates (i.e., explaining their purpose and proper usage). They all follow the naming scheme:


where "Template:" is the namespace prefix for templates, Name is the name of the template being documented, and "/doc" is the standard marker of a template-documentation subpage.

The purpose of this standard naming system is so that the documentation can be transcluded into the template with the relatively simple template call:


(See Template:Doc for additional information.)

Not all templates need to be documented on a separate page like this. In general, templates that are only used once per page (such as navigational templates) can be documented in the template itself (between <noinclude> and </noinclude> tags), but templates that are likely to be used repeatedly in the same page (such as wikicode templates) should be documented on a subpage.

All template documentation should be categorized here and not in any other categories (for now, at least).

When creating subpage documentation, remember to add

<tt>[[Category:Template subpage documentation|Name]]</tt>

to the bottom of the page, using the name of the template being documented (i.e., without the "/doc" suffix) as a sortkey.
