So I selected wikia.com to host my Wiki largely because of two other wikis already hosted here with largely similar subject matter. I felt that I would be able to take advantage of common templates that they both shared and that would be useful to me.
DC Database and Marvel Database both have templates set up for staff, characters, comic books, etc. These templates are laregely the same, showing that they have traded back and forth extensively in building their archives. My own Gateway Comics site would benefit by also using these same templates, but when I copy them over they do not populate the data entered on the Wiki articles that use them to the Wiki displayed.
ie, I enter a character's name into the Template field for that information, but it shows as no data when the article diplays.
I've tried to go through and update any internal links in the templates to point to within my own Wiki, but so far, no luck.
