Template Family Tree with all dependencies - how to import from wiki to mediawiki

5 (talkcontribs)

Hi all!
I want to implement a family tree in my wiki. In wikipedia it is possible to display a family tree --> They use a Template called Family tree. This Template has many dependencies to other Templates and these have dependencies too. Because of this an import of family tree only is not sucessful, some Templates are missing. But I don't know which Templates are missing.

My question:

  • is there a possibility to dipsplay family trees in mediawiki like in wikipedia with a Template:Family tree?
  • If this is not possible, how can I identify all neccessary Templates in wikipedia to imoprt all to my mediawiki?

Some ideas?

For any help, thank you in advance! (talkcontribs)


yes, there surely is a way to display family trees like in Wikipedia.

When you edit a template, you will see a list of transcluded templates below the editing field. These are the ones, which you need. And those, which are transcluded in those templates and so on.

I don't know, if there is a way to export/import a template and automatically also all those on which it depends. I would check the dependencies of the template and copy over the dependant templates as well. Then I would check their dependencies and do the same with those and then... (talkcontribs)
