Using templates

Templates is a great MediaWiki feature that allows to use different pages to create the content of a final page.

It consists on the creation of a 'master' page, which can include customized parameters, and other pages that include that content in their page code.

In this page, there is the organization of the templates in the IGEP Community Wiki.

Feel free to use, edit and create templates!
