Here's your very handy, dandy guide to the Mac OS X wiki templates. Now here at the Mac OS X wiki we believe in plain English is nice and not all wikipedia-ry.

Article templates

  • Use {{technical}} when something get's really techy.
  • Use {{stub}} when the page isn't finished yet (but leave it in a good enough state).
  • Use {{libraryfolder|path|to|folder}} to show a Library folder.
  • Use {{oldstuff}} to show that somethings old (like the Macintosh).
  • Use {{wikinameerror|Correct title}} to rename a page (like from ITunes to iTunes).
