Help:Variables

A variable is called in the form of a template (one without parameters). Variables often refer to specific aspects of the respective page or the wiki, or to time and date variables.

Date
{{CURRENTDAY}} 18 Displays day
{{CURRENTYEAR}} 2019 Displays year
{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} November Displays month
{{CURRENTTIME}} 04:12 Displays time
{{CURRENTHOUR}} 04 Displays hour

{{PAGENAME}} Variables Displays name of page (without namespace)
{{PAGENAMEE}} Variables Same as PAGENAME, but formatted for an URL.

Also, in templates, you can specify a variable in it with {{{VARNAME}}}.

Then, when the template is put onto another page, you can specify the variable as follows:

{{TEMPLATENAME | VARNAME = VALUE }}

which replaces the variable with VALUE. Note that if you name the variables {{{1}}},{{{2}}},{{{3}}}, etc. then you can specify the values without listing the variable names in the template call.
