Template-info.svg Documentation The documentation below is transcluded from Template:Recipes/doc. (edit | history)

Query crafting recipes from database and display them as a table. The original source for the data can be found on the subpages of Recipes.


Parameters for query constraints:

station = station1/station2/...

List only recipes that use these stations.

stationnot = station1/station2/...

Exclude recipes that use these stations.

result = result1/result2/...

List only recipes that create this item. It is also possible to do pattern search using SQL LIKE syntax. Example: result=LIKE %Phaseblade, multiple:result=Iron Bar/LIKE %Phaseblade. Note that "LIKE" must be all uppercase.

resultnot = result1/result2/...

Exclude recipes that create this item. It is also possible to do pattern search using SQL LIKE syntax. Example: resultnot=LIKE %Phaseblade, multiple:resultnot=Iron Bar/LIKE %Phaseblade. Note that "LIKE" must be all uppercase.

ingredient = ingredient1/ingredient2/...

List only recipes that use these items as ingredients. You can use "Any xxx" as ingredient name for some alternative crafting ingredients groups; and, if you query an item in a substitutable item group, you will get "Any xxx" as well. Adding "#" as a prefix (#xxx) will turn this off for that specific item. For example, if you query by |ingredient=Shadewood, you will get recipes as if you query by ingredient=#Shadewood/#Any Wood; |ingredient=#Shadewood/Iron Bar equals to |ingredient=#Shadewood/#Iron Bar/#Any Iron Bar. It is also possible to do pattern search using SQL LIKE syntax. Example: ingredient=LIKE %Phaseblade, multiple:ingredient=Iron Bar/LIKE %Phaseblade. Note that "LIKE" must be all uppercase.

NOTE: The relationship between the above parameters is "and", and the relationship of multiple values inside a single parameter is "or". For example, |station=Sawmill/Loom|resultnot=Silk means (in SQL style):(station = Sawmill OR station = Loom) AND result <> Silk

where = whereString

Raw input string for where the parameter of cargo query is located. If specified, all of above parameters are ignored. Used to write complex queries when necessary, with caution.

Other parameters:

view = infobox

Produces an infobox-like crafting table (or a series of tables wrapped in a flexbox) similar to {{crafting recipe}}. Note: Several features, like extra rows, extra columns, custom result cells, custom headers, custom title, $nostation, station grouping, sorting and custom css do not work with this format.


Adds a title bar to the recipes table, with specified text.

grouping = n/no

Turn off result & ext cols grouping.

nostation = y

If set, the Crafting Station column will be hidden.

stationgrouping = n/no

Turn off Crafting Station column grouping. Only valid when nostation is not set.

cate = no/force

By default, this template will add transcluding page to crafting station category if crafting result is the page title itself. cate=no will disable this. cate=force will force categorization, no matter what the result and page title are.

link = n/no

Set to n/no to stop the result items from linking to their pages.

expectedrows = number (Unused)

Assert the expected number of rows in this crafts table. If the expected and actual number of rows are not equal, this page will be added to Category:Recipe tables with unexpected total number of rows.

sortable = n/no

Makes the table unsortable.

class =
id =
css/style =

HTML class/id/style attributes for outer wrapper div element.


{{recipes|ingredient=Aerialite Bar|station=Sky Mill|resultnot=Heron Rod}}

Explanation: Select all recipes that have Aerialite BarAerialite Bar as an ingredient, and Sky MillSky Mill as a crafting station, then exclude the result Heron RodHeron Rod.

Register Recipes

Recipes in database are registered by {{recipes/register}}. All recipes should be registered on the corresponding crafting station page ( Recipes/[station]/register ), e.g. Recipes/Draedon's Forge/register. For usage of {{recipes/register}}, see its documentation.

Advanced Usage

Custom Result Cells

resulttemplate = template name used for format result cell.

This template will receive the following arguments:

  • link: options for {{item}} template used by default display.
  • result, resultimage, resultname, resulttext, amount: infomation about crafting result.

"@@@@" in template output will be replaced with the default result display.

See tgc:Chairs#Recipes for an example.

Custom Table Header

header-result = content of result <th>, default is Result
header-ingredients = content of ingredients<th>, default is Ingredients
header-station = content of crafting station<th>, default is [[Crafting station]]

Adding extra columns/rows around crafting stations

Only valid when nostation is not set.

Define cols:


Column headers before crafting station column


Column headers before crafting station column

Define index key for row content:

station-index-Furnace = _a

Define index key for "Furnace"(as station parameter), for example

Define actual contents:

_a-row-station-col-before-1 =
_a-row-station-col-before-2 =


_a-row-station-col-after-1 =

Define contents for <td> using index key.

Adding extra cols/rows around by crafting results

Define columns:








The order in which all columns are displayed is:
col-As • Resultcol-Bs • Ingredientscol-Cs • station-col-befores • Crafting Stationstation-col-afters • Col-Ds

Define index key for row content:
Define index key for a row(Priority in this order):

result-index-#3 = _a

Define by row number

result-index-Crimtane Bar-desktop console = _a

Define by result name + version info

result-index-Copper Bar = _a

Define by result name

Define actual contents:

_a-row-col-A-1 =

Define contents for <td> using index key, corresponding to the definition of columns.

Adding extra rows

NOTE: extra rows don't count as part of expectedrows.

Before recipe rows:

topextrow-1-col-result =
topextrow-1-col-ingredients =
topextrow-1-col-station =
topextrow-1-col-ingredients =
topextrow-1-col-C-2 =


topextrow-2-col-result =


After recipe rows:

extrow-1-col-result =
extrow-1-col-ingredients =
extrow-1-col-station =
extrow-1-col-B-1 =
extrow-1-col-C-1 =


extrow-2-col-result =


See tgc:Bars and tgc:Recovery potions for examples.

Extract component

Some components of the recipe can be extracted and formatted separately, see {{recipes/extract}}.

Count for result rows

You can use {{recipes/exist}} and {{recipes/count}} to check the existence and number of results of recipes that meet query constraints. Note: you should use {{#if:{{recipes/exist|<constraints>}}}} to check existence instead of {{#ifeq:{{recipes/count|<constraints>}}|0}}, because the former is much faster and cheaper.
