There are many templates used by editors to mark what needs doing. Eventually there will be templates used to simplify formatting of articles. This is a list of all templates currently available in the wiki, with syntax and usage.

Use of templates

The Cantr wiki uses a number of templates to make editing easier. All the templates can (or will) be found in Category:Templates. The list below is obsolete.


Infoboxes are small tables that allow you to take all the information about an item and display it in a single chunk. Categories will be generated automatically - please do not add category tags to an article that uses infoboxes. Use infoboxes whenever possible - copy the format of another page of the same type as the page you are writing.

Choice templates

Cantr has many cases where several tools, machines or semi-finished products are used in the same way - for example, if the manufacturing menu says a hammer is required to make something, the stone hammer will substitute. For these cases, "choice templates" exist that will generate the full list of interchangeable objects. For example, use {{hammer}} instead of [[hammer]] to generate the text stone, bronze or regular hammer.


Pages missing important information, pages in need of reformatting, pages under major reformatting, and certain other types of pages should be marked using tags, such as {{rewrite}} or {{construction}}.
