TemplateData: Display a useful message instead of an empty table for templates that take no parameters
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Currently, if you use TemplateData for a template without any parameters, you still have to create an empty "params" in the JSON (not really important), but you also end up with a "Template parameters" table with just the title line (Parameter Description Type Default Status).

Rather than displaying an empty table, I think it would be better to display no table at all, or a simple message saying that no parameters are defined for this template.

It would also be useful if you could set "no parameters" in the TemplateData so that VisualEditor does not suggest adding a parameter for these templates.
