Also, I am not entirely clear where the files should be stored - you seem to mention both <code>elements</code> and <code>html/parameters</code> folders.  I think that the references to <code>templateDetails.xml</code> may be a bit of a red herring.  Could we perhaps just remind people that they need to consider this when creating new files for a template, and link to another page specifying how this can be done (i.e. using <code><file></code> or <code><folder></code>)?

Ahh, okay.  You're right, it is template-specific.  That's because I was writing about templates when I wrote the page and I forgot to make it generic. :-)  Rather than change the title I will look at revising it so that it is truly generic, then it can be linked/re-used everywhere.  Thanks.  [[User:Chris Davenport|Chris Davenport]] 16:20, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

Chris, this page seems to be template-specific, but this is not clear from the title. Parameters can also be used with other extensions. Would you object to mentioning templates in the title?

Also, I am not entirely clear where the files should be stored - you seem to mention both elements and html/parameters folders. I think that the references to templateDetails.xml may be a bit of a red herring. Could we perhaps just remind people that they need to consider this when creating new files for a template, and link to another page specifying how this can be done (i.e. using <file> or <folder>)?
