Help:Variables

From WikiLou
Jump to: navigation, search

MediaWiki knows some defined variables which can be used in texts. They are rendered differently depending on the time, the site and the page. Their syntax is similar to templates. If you want a page to show always the current time, you use {{CURRENTTIME}}. To distinguish variables from templates, most variables are completely capitalized.

These variables are very useful in creating templates that will be used on multiple pages.
