Layout guide is to a large extent standardized on Wizards of Waverly Place Wiki. Sections and their headings should largely be consistent across broadly similar categories of articles. In addition, all articles should have lead sections that summarize the subject of an article, unless otherwise stated, and the applicable infobox template if one exists.
In general, these sections should appear in this order if they are needed in an article:
- History is always used for the background history of the article's subject. It must be the first heading. On event articles, it is the background that led to the actual event. Never name such sections anything else other than "History".
- Trivia sections are permitted; they must always use this title to make this clear.
The word "the" should never be used to start a heading e.g. "Wizard Competition" instead of "The Wizard Competition" unless it is the beginning of an episode name e.g. "The Supernatural".
