This template simplifies the creation of articles about news items. When inserted in a news item's page, it creates a decorative table with helpful information. It also takes care of annotating the given data semantically, so that users can easily find it or query it in other articles. Do not try to read this page's source code for learning table syntax – there are far easier ways of creating tables in MediaWiki.

To use this template, insert the following at the beginning of your user page. All fields are strictly optional and should be omitted if no data is given. Feel free not to add data, or to extend the template.


  • The actual news is given after the template in free form.
  • New news are twittered.
|Date=(the date this news item is posted, e.g. 2000-02-11T22:00:01)

The order of the fields is not relevant. The template should be given as the first thing on a page.
