From Woozle Writes Code
Jump to navigation Jump to search


W3TPL, which stands for Woozle's Wacky Wiki Text Processing Language, is a scripting language extension for MediaWiki. It was written to permit some simple scripting and to get around certain restrictions of the wikitext format (e.g. emitting "dangerous" tags). It has largely been superceded by new options and other MediaWiki extensions that are better supported (such as Scribunto), and some tags/options do not currently work.
