Adding new episodes to the template

To add new data to all these templates, go to Module:EpisodeData and update the large table there with the new data. As soon as you make a change here, it's reflected on every page where the above templates are used.


Module:Episode is the code that drives the templates. You can use this to add new types of templates.
