This page lists the templates available for use on SGUTranscripts.org. For further descriptions and information on usage, see the template pages themselves.

Text transclusion

Episode lists

These templates are used as a central place to add/update the lists of transcription pages on the site.

Intros & Outros

The SGU has had a number of different outros over the years. Inserting the following templates transcludes the voiceover at the end of an episode.

episodes 289 & 290 use the same text as 291-300, but are voiced by Steve

Quick text & links

The following templates can be used to insert the full name of frequently used organizations, with or without the external link

  • SGU – inserts "Skeptics' Guide to the Universe"
  • CSICOP – inserts " Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal"
  • NESS – inserts " New England Skeptical Society"

Other

  • Category info – uniform blurb on the indexing of articles listed on a category page
  • Go to top – adds a navigate button to go back to the top of the page

Message boxes

Message boxes are temporarily added to highlight the page's status, e.g. in progress, needs editing/proof-reading etc.

The following message boxes are used as place holders to avoid duplication:

  • Transcribing – indicates transcription of a segment is in progress (best at top of page)
  • Transcribing section – indicates which segment is in progress (best above specific section)
  • Transcribing all – indicates transcription of entire episode is in progress
  • Proof reading – indicates proof reading of segment is in progress
  • Proof reading all – indicates proof reading of entire episode is in progress

For a simple way to leave a message behind for other editors, use this generic MessageBox. Of course, general viewers will see the message, so don't use it inappropriately.

Tables

Table entries

Templates are an easy way to add formatted entries into table cells or rows.

Icons & images

  • Navigation – 3 images linking to the previous page, top of the current page, and the next episode, respectively. This is added at the very bottom of every transcription page
  • 5X5 Navigation – as Navigation, but for 5X5 episodes

Categorizing

When these templates are added to a page, they add that page to the relevant category.
