User:Shiningpikablu252/DP episode template guide

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Please don't copy and paste content from another episode article to create a new episode article. Use Template:DP episode instead. If you don't know how to use it, here's a lowdown:

  1. This field denotes the number of the episode in question. For example, for the DP150 article, the field should read 150. The previous and following episode numbers are handled automatically
  2. This field denotes the announced Japanese broadcast date. For example, if DP150 were announced for New Year's Eve in 2009, this field would read December 31, 2009. (Note that this is in no way indicitave of DP150's actual Japanese airdate.)
  3. This field denotes the raw episode name in kanji.
  4. This field denotes the translated episode name in Roman characters. For example, if DP150's Japanese title were to translate as "Satoshi, Meet Your New Riolu!", that translation would make up field 4 with its raw kanji as field 3. (Note that this is in no way indicitave to any actual DP150 plot.)

The template may be daunting to those unfamiliar with it, but it should grow on you after a few uses.--~~~~

NOTE TO USERS OF THE TEMPLATE: ALWAYS CALL IT WITH subst:, so that what appears on the page begins with {{subst:User:Shiningpikablu252/DP episode template guide|. Then enter the fields as follows :

  • intro=An introduction, if you don't want to use the one already written|
  • exampleepisode=The episode number you wish to use as an example|
  • datedescription=A description of an airdate you wish to use as an example.|
  • exampledate=An airdate you wish to use as an example.|
  • exampletranslation=An episode title you wish to use as an example.|
  • closing=A closing statement, if you don't want to use the one already written|

Finally, close the template like you would a normal template. No need to sign, even!
