This template can be used to welcome new users. This template is a combination of all the other welcome templates like {{Welcome}}, {{W-basic}}, {{W-shout}}, {{W-short}}, {{W-graphical}}, {{W-cust}}, {{Welcomeh}}, etc. This template maybe, in the future, have parameters for colors, etc. but at present it has only for the skin, message, and page menu. The template looks all scrambled but when parameters are mentioned, it will look good.

Always Substitute the template!

Please do substitute this template as it may not work otherwise.



Leave the section heading empty. If you want your own heading, see below.

Special Features of the Template[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

This template automatically adds your username, the link to your talk page and has a signature. The template automatically identifies anonymous (IP Users) and gives them a message encouraging them to create a user account. The template has a wide variety of skins and many parameters which will change the template in any way you want. All the parsers all substituted making the template source in other pages as small as possible.


The following is the list of parameters. Their cases is given in bold and beside is the result. The default parameters are bold and italicized. The "default" case means the case that is default and not parameter=default. Leave the parameter blank to get the default result and not parameter=default!


Insert your heading. The default heading is "Welcome from Your name".


y: "Welcome," is replaced with "Welcome Again,".

default: "Welcome," is the heading.


y: Inserts a plate of cookies.

default: Removes a plate of cookies.

graphical: Gives a message, below it is a graphical menu of the pages that are good for new users.

g-c: A variation of the above. The graphical menu is collapsible.

plus8: There is a list of eight important pages good for new users below the message and the eight links are noted under P.S.

short: A short little message without the links and extra message. Won't support message and text parameters. Won't give extra IP user encouraging to get a username message if the person being welcomed is a IP user.

icons: A variation of the default template. The list of links have a picture beside them.

default: has a message, links for new users, and a signature. All the other skins are variations of this.

The parameter also exists as parameter 3.

The page parameter supports all the texts except for none. It gives the pagename of the article that has been created in "article" and the page in which test edit has been made in "test" and so on. Just mention the pagename without linking to it. Not supported by text=no.

The parameter also exists as parameter 4.
