Multiple templates per category

I see we can create a template in a category. Just wondering if it’s possible to create a few different templates for a category?

Sorry, I’m confused. Templates are inserted into the composer automatically when the category is selected. How would multiple templates work? Would one be picked at random?

The user would have the chance to choose which template they would like to use before they begin posting.

Interesting idea. This is not possible at the moment, so this would be a #feature request. I’d be interested to see some mockups of how you’d see this working.


Perhaps the canned replies interface could be roled in?

Yeah, I’m a former lithium user and I used to build templates.
I would like to present users with a list of templates when they go to start a wiki post.

I see this functioning at the per category level and only for the wiki category. I plan to keep the rest of my community discussion-based.

This sure sounds a lot like staff defined canned replies users can select.

I would like to predefine the structure of wiki posts for common issues, troubleshooting, QA, best practices. Those types of things.
