# Templates used on this site

This is a list of templates we use for MediaWiki. They can generally be accessed through this website (http://laussy.org) by entering Template:NameOfTemplate as the last part of the url.

## List

### cite

A cite template to quote in a way similar as you would do with $\mathrm{\TeX}$ and bibTeX is described in this blog post.

### contactme

Puts whatever should read when I need someone to contact me:

{{contactme}}

Puts a logo

### pright

Inserts a right-aligned paragraph. This is a weak counterpart to quote but is not a float, so is less fragile.

{{pright|This text.}}

This text.

### quote

Inserts a quotation. See Template:Quote for documentation.

### see

is pointing on Fabrice (used with pages shortcuts).

### stub

Warns of pages that are still so much in construction, they're not really nice to visit.

{{stub}}

### TeX

$\mathrm{\TeX}$

### thisday

Provides the clickable date of a given day, e.g.,

{{subst:thisday|30|September|1977}}

### today

Provides the clickable date of today, e.g.,

{{subst:today}}

gives 15, November (2009).

### hour

Gives the local hour (shortcut for {{LOCALTIME}} or {{CURRENTIME}}; still have to fix timezone issue), e.g.,

{{hour}}

gives {{subst:LOCALTIME}}.

### multicol

From Wikipedia's multicol. Use as:

{{multicol}}
This text appears in the first column.
{{multicol-break}}
This text appears in the second column.
{{multicol-break}}
This text appears in the third column.
{{multicol-end}}


You need to create the three corresponding pages$^*$, which are shortcuts for divivision of the page with floats.
