Creating a template listing Rimsky-Korsakov's operas

Hello,

I noticed that the opera work-pages for Rimsky-Korsakov at IMSLP do not include a list at the bottom to guide the reader amongst the various operas (unlike, say, Cesar Cui at http://imslp.org/wiki/Template:Cui_Operas).

How do I create a template for Rimsky-Korsakov's operas so that the link-code for it can be added to the end of the opera work-pages? I assume it would be called "Template:Operas (Rimsky-Korsakov, Nikolay)." I could simply edit the code by starting from the code of the Cui template.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Using the Cui template is probably the best way to do it. If you want to change the background color to something different you can find a list of web safe colors with their decimal equivalents here: web colors.

Thanks for the information. I still don't understand how to create a template.

Click this link: http://imslp.org/wiki/Template:Operas (Rimsky-Korsakov, Nikolay). Then click the link for "edit this page." Now you can copy the code from the Cui template page to here and modify it to link Rimsky-Korsakov's operas. To create any new page on the wiki all you really need to do is add some text after http://imslp.org/wiki/ and when you hit the enter key you'll get the message that the page doesn't exist together with a link to edit the page (which then creates it).

Thanks! I just now finished inputting the data for the template. http://imslp.org/wiki/Template:Operas_( ... v,_Nikolay)

Next step is to edit all of the work-pages for Rimsky-Korsakov's operas to this to the end, before "| *****END OF TEMPLATE***** }}", right?:
----
{{Operas (Rimsky-Korsakov, Nikolay)}}

Why do we need to mention details like the dates of various versions of these on a navigation box? The versions of any given opera are all going to be on the same page, after all. Other than this minor detail, looks perfect - and a very helpful addition.
