On this page you will find several Wiki Templates to help you categorise modular content items according to the information provided in the article "Categorising a chunk".


Wiki templates are wiki pages which can be used in other pages using a technique called transclusion. They reside in their own content namespace to avoid name clashing with regular articles. In order to use such a template, all you have to do is to enclose its name in curly brackets: {{template name}}.


A chunk is a small, focussed, stand-alone piece of content that is written so that it makes sense even when taken out of context. Each chunk can be thought of as answering a basic question (who?, what?, where?, when?, why?, how?) and we categorise the chunks according to the type of answer we are giving (for example, a topic, procedure, definition, figure or table).
