This franchise has gotten huge over the last 15 years with multiple different series across multiple different formats. As the franchise has grown, it has become more inconvenient to link to the various media pages on this wiki without typing the full page name:
[[Toaru Majutsu no Index Light Novel Volume 01]]
[[Toaru Majutsu no Index Light Novel Volume 01/Chapter 1]]
[[Toaru Majutsu no Index Manga Volume 01]]
[[Toaru Majutsu no Index Manga Chapter 001]]
[[Toaru Majutsu no Index Episode 01]]
[[Toaru Majutsu no Index II Episode 01]]
[[Toaru Majutsu no Index III Episode 01]]
This is especially inconvenient when referencing source material in regular articles.
To address this inconvenience, I have created the following new quick link templates that (after learning how to use) should make contributors life easy when referencing and linking to media pages for light novels, manga and anime:
These templates are now available for general use and should make future links and references to source material and media pages easier, systematic and take up less space. After reading up on the documentation for these templates, you will be able to link to the above examples as follows:
These templates are easy to update when new series are added to the franchise e.g. Dark Matter manga; LN Series Part 3.
There shouldn't be a rush to wiki pages to replace previous wikilinks to media pages with these new templates; the templates are only for new links made from now onward.
A bot account will deal with previously made wikilinks.
In order to aid the future use of these new templates, the source editor will now highlight these quick link templates purple to distinguish them from regular templates.
