==Testing templates==
 
While making a new template or a new revision of an existing template, it is often better to put it in a user subpage (make an article at User:<yourname>/<pagename>) until it is ready and approved. If creating a test page in your userspace, mind the {{bp|userspace policy}}.
 
If a template was recently updated, but pages which use it do not update to reflect the change, the specific pages can be forced to update their transcluded pages by hard-refreshing the server. This can be done by clicking the UTC clock in the top of your screen.
