This page describes how to create the main page for a wiki project using the code below as a template. Please see Help:Creating a new WikiProject for more information how to start and manage a wiki project.

To create a wiki project using this template follow these steps:

Step 1: Copy this code to: "FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Name of Project/frame"

<div style="display:block; border:1px solid #BFBFFF; vertical-align:center; width:100%;
background-color:#FFFFFF; margin-bottom:6px; margin-top:5px; padding-bottom:5px; padding-left:0px; padding-right:0px;">
<h2 style="background-color:#CCCCFF; text-align:center; font-weight:bold; margin:0px 0px 5px 0px; padding:5px 3px 5px 3em; font-size:{{{title-size|120%}}}; ">{{{title}}}</h2>
<div style="float:right; padding-right:6px;">
<div style="font-weight:normal; font-size:70%; "><nowiki>[</nowiki>[[{{FULLPAGENAME}}{{{subpage}}}|edit]]<nowiki>]</nowiki></div>
<div style="padding-left:4px; padding-right:4px; vertical-align:top;">

For instructions on how to change the frame colors see [[FamilySearch Wiki:Creating a Wikiproject using a template#Changing Colors|FamilySearch Wiki:Creating a Wikiproject using a template]].</noinclude>

Step 2: Copy this code below to the page for your project at "FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Name of Project

<!--This project uses subpages for each section. Please use the "edit" link found on the upper right corner of each section to edit them.-->

<!-- Single Column-->
<div style="display:block; width:100%; float:center;">
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Add image.png|22px]] {{PAGENAME}} |
title-size = 200% |
subpage = /Introduction}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Help books.png|22px|Project Goals]] Project Goals |
subpage = /Project goals}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Nuvola apps knewsticker.png|22px]] Announcements |
subpage = /Announcements}}

<!--Two Columns-->
<div style="width:146%">

<!-- Left Column -->
<div style="display:block; width:49%; float:left;">
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Notepad icon.svg.png|22px]] How can I contribute to this project ? |
subpage = /Contribute to this project}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Assess.png|22px]] Article assessments |
subpage = /Article assessments}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Nuvola apps kedit.png|22px]] Articles needing improvement |
subpage = /Articles needing improvement}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Curly Brackets.png|22px]] Templates |
subpage = /Templates}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Categories.png|22px]] Categories |
subpage = /Related categories}}

<!-- Right column -->
<div style="display:block; width:49%; float:right;">
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Nuvola apps kwrite.png |22px]] Things to do for the WikiProject |
subpage = /To do list}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Camera-photo.png|22px]] Image requests |
subpage = /Image requests}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:People.png|22px]] Project participants |
subpage = /Participants}}
{{{{subst:FULLPAGENAME}}/frame |
title = [[Image:Icon project.png|22px]] Related projects |
subpage = /Related projects}}


Step 3: Customizing your project.

The project page is created using subpages located at "Project Name/Section Name". You can add or remove any section in order to customize your project. The titles and images can be changed by changing the "title=" and the subpage=" parameters. Once you have decided on your sections, you are ready to start creating the sections using the red links.

Changing Colors

To change the frame colors go to the /frame template you created above and change:

  • border:1px solid #BFBFFF --> Border size and color.
  • background-color:#FFFFFF --> Background color of the boxes.
  • <h2 style="background-color:#CCCCFF --> Background color for the titles.
Color choices can be found at
