A '''template''' is a page anyone can create.  An example template is [[Template:Stub]].  If someone creates an article that belongs in a certain category, they can add the template name for that category by adding the template name in double brackets at the bottom of the page, like so: {{category name}}.  For example, this page has the the template <nowiki>{{Tutorial}}</nowiki> at the bottom of the page.
 
 
A category is a page where all articles with a similar theme are listed.  An example is  Category:Stubs.  All articles that were categorized with the <nowiki>{{stub}}</nowiki> formatting will be in this category.  To directly add a page to a category, use the <nowiki>[[Category:Insert Category]]</nowiki> code.  This page, for example, displays the <nowiki>[[Category:AoPSWiki]]</nowiki> code at the bottom.

A template is a page anyone can create. An example template is Template:Stub. If someone creates an article that belongs in a certain category, they can add the template name for that category by adding the template name in double brackets at the bottom of the page, like so: Template:Category name. For example, this page has the the template {{Tutorial}} at the bottom of the page.

How to Create a Template

To create a template, which we will call "Sample" for the purposes of this tutorial, first navigate to the page Template:Sample. Edit the page, then add the following text (anything in bold can be changed):


This article is a sample. It's purpose is to do this and that and this that.

<noinclude>''This template will categorize articles that include it into [[:Category:Samples]].''</noinclude>

[[Category:Samples]]


Now, whenever you add the code {{sample}} at the end of an article, it will display the text "This article is a sample. It's purpose is to do this and that and this that. Also, the page Category:Samples will be automatically created. Any pages tagged with {{sample}} will automatically be added to Category:Samples.
