This page describes how to {{{1}}}. Other "how to" pages


Calling the template currently:

  1. Auto-categorises pages to be members of Category:How To
  2. Corrects the sortkey: telling the system that VLC HowTo/Adjust audio delay ought to be filed as "Adjust audio delay" (A) and not "VLC HowTo/Adjust audio delay" (V).
  3. Displays a message (optional)
    • {{howto|do something}}) will show a message will be shown similar to the above.
    • {{howto|silent=yes}} will suppress the message altogether—however, the template still auto-categorises and auto-sorts.
