Templates that generate text or other elements on Wikipedia pages ("function" templates) or aid their formatting. Some require substitution; check documentation before use.
If you do not find what you are looking for in here, try the parent category Category:Wikipedia utility templates or one of its other subcategories. The distinction between these categories is unclear, and this one may need to up-merge.
The pages listed in this category are meant to be formatting and function templates.
To include a template in this category, add <noinclude>[[Category:Formatting and function templates]]</noinclude> to the end of the template code, making sure it starts on the same line as the last character of the code.
Pages in this category should be moved to subcategories when appropriate.
This category may require frequent maintenance to avoid becoming too large. It should list very few, if any, article pages directly and should mainly contain appropriately categorized subcategories.
