These help pages were copied and then adapted with permission from the main help pages at MediaWiki. If you notice something missing please feel free to e-mail the ASUW Tech for assistance or, if you feel up to it, add it yourself.

MediaWiki knows some defined variables which can be used in texts. They are rendered differently depending on the time, the site and the page. Their syntax is similar to templates. If you want a page to show always the current time, you use {{CURRENTTIME}}. To distinguish variables from templates, most variables are capitalized.
