  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:Transclusion
  • Template:Transclusion/styles.css

Using the template

  1. Add the template from the VisualEditor insert-dialog.
  2. Fill in the form fields as needed.
Note:If, after importin the template to your wiki, the input fields are not displayed when you first integrate it into a wiki page, you need to open the template in the template namespace, make a change (e.g. insert spaces) and save the template. The input fields should now be displayed correctly.
