Here's a link from a question about this on the Meta site for Stack Exchange.

Basically I want some help with the syntax of MediaWiki, like how can I create templates like this.

Specifics: as commentators requested. I am interested in creating these templates to be fully functional so that I can utilize them in articles. Like I'd love to be able to create drugboxes for my articles on this Wiki.

Now, I realize this is generalized, but all I want is someone to give me an explanation, and then walk me through it.

Possibly, it depends on your specific question however. We do have questions on MediaWiki templates here.

If the question is simply how can I create templates like this however, then that would be considered too broad to answer in under a few paragraphs, so would be off-topic here. Also, if it involves extensive programming, then it would likely be a better fit for Stack Overflow where there are more programmers to help.

In regards to the "Specifics" added to your question, without seeing the actual question, I can only further state that according to our guidelines on What topics can I ask about here: Questions about other CMSs [exluding WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Tridion, or Salesforce] may be asked here on Pro Webmasters.

So the subject area is on-topic, and really depends on how you ask your question(s). You can read more about how to ask questions by reviewing the Asking section in our Help Center.
