RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $1680Goal: $3500

Help:Magic words

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Magic words are wikitext markup that tell the server to do stuff. Useful for making templates.

List of:

Examples[edit]

{{Welcome}} uses {{PAGENAME}} returns the the page's title. Since this template is placed on user's talk pages, the page title is the user's username.

Our Trump tweet generator uses {{#time: ... }} to imitate Twitter's time stamp on tweets.

{{#time:h\:i A}} - {{CURRENTDAY}} {{#time:M}} {{CURRENTYEAR}}

results in: 08:04 AM - 22 Sep 2020.

Show your username[edit]

It's not a magic word, but still awesome.

<span class="myName">Anonymous User</span>
results in Anonymous User.

We have a template {{USERNAME}} which is just <span class="myName">Anonymous User</span> inside.
