This is the template documentation for the Unity Wikis Responsive Interwiki Template, a template which references various wikis related to using Unity's Game Engine platform.

Adding this template[]

This is a interwiki footer which should be visible at the bottom of a wiki's main page. You can only add it if you have sufficient permissions to edit the main page.

Using the Source Editor[]

  1. Go to the bottom of the page.
  2. Paste {{w:UnityWikisResponsive}}.
  3. Save your changes.

You can also insert <br clear="all"> before the template to be sure it will not conflict with other elements.

Using the Visual Editor[]

  1. Go to the bottom of the page, click after all elements.
  2. Insert a template called: w:UnityWikisResponsive.
  3. The menu will say that the template does not exist (on the local wiki), insert it anyway.
  4. Save your changes.

Adding your wiki[]

  1. Go to the Template:UnityWikisResponsive/list and edit.
  2. We want to keep this template in alphabetical order. Find the appropriate alphabetical range for the link based off the Unity Project Name (e.g.: Sort The Court, Rec Rooms, SCP: Secret Laboratory etc).
  3. Insert this into the template on a new line:
    [[w:c:"WikiDomain"|"UnityProjectName"]] •
    • Change "WikiDomain" to the domain of the wiki (the part before
    • Change "UnityProjectName" to the name of the Unity project the wiki is based on.
  4. Save your changes.

Template Customization[]

As interwiki templates cannot use parameters, UnityWikis is one of the few that enables communities to customize the template through CSS.

UnityWikis has certain classes that allows communities to customize parts of the template (the list cannot be customized):

  1. UnityWikis: This controls the template element.
    • Default style:
      overflow:hidden; width:100%; margin-bottom:1em
