Help:Fanfiction Pages/Template

From Fanlore
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a sample page structure for a page about an individual fanfic. Examples: Down to Agincourt, My Immortal (Harry Potter story), Yesterday Upon The Stair, and When the Moon Fell in Love with the Sun. When you create a page, you can copy the text below and paste it into the blank edit window to begin editing the page.

All of the wording in this template is intended as a placeholder for the actual content of your page - but you don't have to use all of it! Replace the placeholder text with whatever you want to put on the page, and if you don't have anything to put there, you can leave out that section or remove the text. (Please don't leave the placeholder text in the page!)
