Usage

This template has been created as an example of the layout/section headings to be used when creating an article about a society.

Start by creating a new Wiki page with a title that is the name of the society. Then on that new blank page use this template by typing {{subst:Societies}}, and near the bottom of the page in the Summary  box typing "create page headings" and clicking the [Save page] button. This will create all the headings in this template in the new article. Helpful tips guidance about the things to included in each section are given here below. Users can then add the specific content related to the society and can add or remove sections as needed.

Pages created using this template will be added to the Category:Societies.

See the Help article for more information about creating a society page.
