I've noticed that you haven't been nesting section headers properly in some articles. The first section header in an article should be <tt><nowiki>== Like this ==</nowiki></tt>, with double-equals signs, not triple. Each sub-section level below that should add only one additional equals sign (on each side), like so:
 +
<pre><nowiki>
 +
Lead section.
 +
==First section header==
 +
First section.
 +
===Subsection===
 +
Interesting prose.
 +
====Sub-subsection====
 +
More interesting prose.
 +
===Subsection two===
 +
Blah, blah, blah.
 +
==Second main section==
 +
Yada, yada.
 +
==Third main section==
 +
The end.
 +
</nowiki></pre>
 +
Note that <tt><nowiki>=Single equals signs=</nowiki></tt> should never be used because the title of the article itself is at that level.

Failed template

I see you tried to use a template copied from another MediaWiki-based wiki. In case you didn't know why it failed, it's because we don't have the required parser functions (#ifdef and the like) on this wiki. We do have a slightly less convenient Template:If that can be used in place of #if, but no templates for #ifdef and #switch. (I don't even know if it's possible to replicate the functionality of those two functions with what we have here.) - dcljr 12:53, 19 November 2007 (CST)

Yeah, it was a pretty lame attempt. I was trying to get a template merge, finally I just grabbed the template for wikify from this wiki and called it a day. No real need to be fancy, just wanted something to say that Jesus fulfilled prophecy is pretty much a dupe of Messianic prophecy, and was feeling adventurous in the realm of cargo cult programming. If you notice when I trashed the template for ambox I used fail summary. Although, actually the wikify and merge templates probably share like 95% of the same info and could be rereferenced to an box template (which would help if those templates needed a change).

I tried such a thing with Template:Stub master, which all of the stub templates now use. Of course, that's only for stubs... You can use Iron Chariots Wiki:Sandbox and Template:Sandbox for further experimentation if you want to work on a general-purpose "box" template. BTW, I just deleted Template:Ambox (although I accidentally hit the Enter key before I finished the edit summary — urgh!).

Section headers

I've noticed that you haven't been nesting section headers properly in some articles. The first section header in an article should be == Like this ==, with double-equals signs, not triple. Each sub-section level below that should add only one additional equals sign (on each side), like so:

Lead section.
==First section header==
First section.
===Subsection===
Interesting prose.
====Sub-subsection====
More interesting prose.
===Subsection two===
Blah, blah, blah.
==Second main section==
Yada, yada.
==Third main section==
The end.

Note that =Single equals signs= should never be used because the title of the article itself is at that level. - dcljr 14:11, 27 November 2007 (CST)
