The Template

This template is a derivative work/variation of "Template:Alg". It was specifically created for long algorithms for the 4x4x4 cube so that they wouldn't wrap to the next line and increase the length of the page unnecessarily. In addition, a new column for move count (BQTM,BHTM) has been added, and it is optional to add a name to an algorithm, should it have one. This template was written to accompany the new format of the 4x4x4 parity algorithms wiki page and also the fact that alg.garron.us does not support old WCA notation.


Example 1

Assuming that you already know the syntax for Template:Alg, then if you want to link the algorithm, r2 B2 U2 l U2 r' U2 r U2 F2 r F2 l' B2 r2, to alg.cubing.net using this template.

{{Alg5
|wca=r2 B2 U2 l U2 r' U2 r U2 F2 r F2 l' B2 r2
|sign=2R2 B2 U2 2L U2 2R' U2 2R U2 F2 2R F2 2L' B2 2R2
|length=(25,15)
|name=Old Standard Alg

Since the current incarnation of alg.cubing.net (as of the date of this edit) does not support Old WCA notation (where lower case letters represent inner slice turns, and Rw = (Rr), for example) and the majority of cubers who can read notation have a much easier time reading Old WCA, one can see above that the algorithm is displayed in Old WCA notation but is liked to alg.cubing.net via the move count slot in the algorithm template.

  • Note that the url parameter is for providing readers a forum post, video link, etc., of where to find the original (or one of the original) locations an algorithm was popularized--or better yet--first published.
  • To use this template, one must write an algorithm in Old WCA notation and SiGN notation in their respective parameters and must supply a move count ordered pair. Any of the other parameters may be left blank.


Example 2

{{Alg5
|wca=r2 B2 U2 l U2 r' U2 r U2 F2 r F2 l' B2 r2
|sign=2R2 B2 U2 2L U2 2R' U2 2R U2 F2 2R F2 2L' B2 2R2

  • I, cmowla, the creator of this alg template variation prefers to have the move count for 4x4x4 algorithms shown for convenience and organization. If you do not like this option, you may create a new template or just use Template:Alg.
