Plugin usage

Plugins are called by {{(Plugin name)>(Parameters: ...)}}

All syntax rules are explained by examples:

Wst plugin

(= Wikimedia-style Template)
The plugin has been modified to also include internal and/or external links. Moreover the functionality of this plugin has been expanded to cover the following variations:


  • {{wst>author|aaa}}
  • {{wst>author|[[aaa]]}}
  • {{wst>author|[[Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|Gerd-Lothar Reschke]] ([[xxxxx|bbbb]])}}1)

Brand menue

  • {{wst>menue|Audemars_Piguet}} for watch brands 2)
  • {{wst>menue_mov|ETA}} for movement producers 3)


All Images need a copyright annotation.

image_cr/image_cl: Right/left and with automatical copyright notice (= first parameter, always linked)

  • {{wst>image_cl|Rolex|Submariner Date Stahl Gold}}
  • {{wst>image_cl|Rolex|Submariner Date Stahl Gold|190px}}4)
  • {{wst>image_cl|Rolex|Submariner Date Stahl Gold|Rolex Submariner Date Steel/Gold, [[waterproof]] to 300 m}}5)
  • {{wst>image_cl|A. Lange & Söhne|Richard Lange Pour le Merite|Rolex Submariner Date Steel/Gold, [[waterproof]] to 300 m|190px}}6)

image_r/image_l: Right/left. Copyright notice has to be added manually.

  • {{wst>image_r|Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|Gerd-Lothar Reschke\\ © privat}}
  • {{wst>image_r|Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|[[Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|Gerd-Lothar Reschke]]\\ © privat}}
  • {{wst>image_r|Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|Gerd-Lothar Reschke\\ © privat|190px}}7)
  • {{wst>image_r|Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|[[Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|Gerd-Lothar Reschke]] und [[aaa|bbb]]}}
  • {{wst>image_r|Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|[[Rolex]] ....[[Reschke, Gerd-Lothar|Gerd-Lothar Reschke]] \\ ....}}


Some templates from the Mediwiki version of the wiki are transfered. The syntax is like this:

  • {{wst>template_omega_speedmaster_timeline}}8)
  • {{wst>template_eta_2800_calibres}}9)
  • {{wst>template_eta_2890_calibres}}10)
  • {{wst>template_valjoux_7750_calibres}}11)

Tag plugin

All entries must have a tag assignment (Wikimedia: “category”). Tags are separated by blanks; combined names are connected by underscores. There is no difference between lowercase and uppercase letters.

  • {{tag>Jaeger-LeCoultre Jaeger-LeCoultre_AMVOX_models Automotive_watch_brands}}

Please note that in contrast to Mediawiki there are no subcategories. Therefore the former subcategories are separately listed in the portals (i.e. especially here: Watch Knowledge).

BlockQuote plugin


Former Mediawiki tables have been transferred into HTML syntax (the corresponding mediawiki-style plugin does not work correctly). For new tables the dokuwiki syntax, which is much easier, can be used. The last three shortcut symbols in the above topbar use the Edittable plugin to simplify the editing.


Redirects are managed in a special text file which can only be edited/changed by the administrator. If you need a redirection please send a mail with the desired combination (old pagename in lower case [=URL part after ?id=], blank, new page name).
