- MediaWiki Extension Use Cases / Template Support
- For the creation of WikiReaders import templates are a useful feature. Furthermore, they help to prevent the user's disorientation by enhancing the visual mapping between MediaWiki and OOo document.
- We will support templates (.ott) that is used for Wiki imports. The template can be customized. If not available, a standard empty document is created. The extension will contain a MediaWiki template that resembles the styles of MediaWiki.
