PageTemplates offer the possibility to select from predefined content structures (templates, eg content directory, blocks, layout, content elements) when creating a new page, thus creating uniformity for certain page types.

Usage / Features

  • Create a template (with Headers, Categories, Boxes e.a.) in the template namespace.
  • Create a page template using the special page (Global actions - Administration - Page templates) to give the page template a name and a description.
  • Each template should be assigned a template from "Templates" namespace that represents the structure of a document.
  • Page templates can be assigned to a particular namespace, so that a certain template will only appear when creating pages in that namespace.
  • The page template will be displayed in a menu, if a new page ist to be created.

Technical information


Some aspects of this extension can be configured on Special:BlueSpicePreferences, under section "Page templates". Here wiki administrators can configure:

  • In which namespaces templates should not be shown.
  • Force target namespace.
  • Hide default templates.
  • Hide template if the page is not to be created in the target namespace.

Rights (permissions)

Users must have "pagetemplates-viewspecialpage" permission in order to manage templates.
