This is a central directory of templates, and other pages in the template space, that do not always have transclusions and thus can appear to be orphaned. This can include cleanup templates and other templates used to tag problem pages for a short time. It can also include pages in the template space that are used via linking but are not transcluded for some reason.

If you see a template that is used in this way, please add ((transclusionless)) to the template's documentation. If it should be substituted (subst:), please use ((Always substitute)) instead so that the template appears in the subcategory Wikipedia substituted templates (see below).

Pages in this category are excluded from the Wikipedia:Database reports/Unused templates report.
