  2. Enter an Interwiki prefix. Since this field is required, simply add hw (for hallowelt).
  3. Keep the selection Import to default locations.
  4. Click Upload file... .

The template is now available in your wiki.

Pages included in the import

The xml import creates the following files in your wiki:

  • Template:Employee
  • Template:Employee/styles.css

Creating the employee gallery

You can add each individual employee card as a template. Alternatively, you can add a "batch" of employees directly in the source mode of the page.

  1. From the Visual Editor Insert > Template menu, add the template "Employee".
    Screenshot of dialog to select the Employee template
    Select the Employee template
  2. Provide the necessary information in the parameter fields.

Adding a "batch" of employees

To speed up the process, you can quickly add the template multiple times directly in the source editing mode. This also allows you to add a colored grey wrapper around the gallery:

<div style="background:#e9e9ee">
{{Employee|title=Title|image=|name=Employee name|department=Department|username=}}
{{Employee|title=Title|image=|name=Employee name|department=Department|username=}}
{{Employee|title=Title|image=|name=Employee name|department=Department|username=}}
{{Employee|title=Title|image=|name=Employee name|department=Department|username=}}
{{Employee|title=Title|image=|name=Employee name|department=Department|username=}}
{{Employee|title=Title|image=|name=Employee name|department=Department|username=}}
</div>

Available parameters

1 title text Job title
