This page contains lists of templates available on Conservapedia.

Templates are predefined blocks of text or other code (including formatting). Advantages of using templates are:

  • Consistency of style (using the same template in various articles).
  • Save time (reusing text that has been written before).
  • Easy updating (Changing the template allows one to change that text in every article that uses that template).
  • Automatically include the page in a given category.
