This is a list of frequently asked questions for Template:Store locations list.
If something seems to be missing, feel free to ask on the talk page. For usage information, see documentation.

This page exists to answer questions you may have about the automatic stores list. If your question is not here, you may ask it on the talk page.

How do I add a store to this list?[edit source]

Stores are added to the list automatically once they are recognised. The information is cached, so you will need to hard refresh to confirm you are seeing the latest version of the page.

Stores are recognised by the list template if they use {{StoreLine}} with the Name parameter set to the parameter passed to the list.

For example, if we had:

{{Store locations list|Rune platebody}}

It would find any page that has

{{StoreLine|Name=Rune platebody}}

How do I remove a store from this list?[edit source]

Stores can be removed from the list by adding |smw=No to the StoreTableHead of the store's page.

For example, to exclude Aemad's Adventuring Supplies. from Rope#Store locations, edit Aemad's Adventuring Supplies. and add |smw=No to the StoreTableHead.

Why doesn't this store show up?[edit source]

There are 3 reasons a store may not show up on the list:

  1. There was an error in the code preventing the item from being recognised
  2. Over 100 stores sell the item (no items hit this limit so far)
  3. The store is intentionally prevented from being added to this list (see above section)

What error confused the template?[edit source]

For a store to be recognised as selling the item, the Name parameter will need to match the item's article name exactly. This includes casing; any letter after the first letter is case sensitive.

How do I change incorrect information?[edit source]

To change incorrect information, you will need to go to the article of the store that is incorrect. Members status can be changed in {{Infobox shop}}. Stock, price, and currency can be changed in the relevant {{StoreLine}} template. If a store is displayed as selling an item it doesn't, remove the relevant {{StoreLine}} template entirely.

After editing, the information on the item's page may still be cached (as mentioned above), so don't be worried if a change does not appear right away.

Why is a shop listed twice?[edit source]

Some stores' prices depend on certain factors, such as equipping Karamja gloves or Piscarilius favour points. The different price options are all listed.

Why are stores with no stock shown?[edit source]

Speciality stores do not always stock an item by default, but this should still be displayed on the store's article. 0 stock locations may be helpful for finding a place to sell an item.
