About Warning: "Template error: are you trying to use the = sign? Visit Help:Template#Escape template-breaking characters for workarounds."

From (dm-crypt/Encrypting an entire system): https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Dm-crypt/Encrypting_an_entire_system&oldid=596282

The template-breaking character issue was because of = in the Phoronix URL. Since the URL was in Template:Warning, normally you would need to escape it with e.g. {{Warning|1=text text [https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=GRUB-Boots-LUKS2-Disk-Encrypt]}}, but since it starts with a list, it becomes a little more annoying:
{{Warning|1=<nowiki></nowiki>
* list item
* list item [https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=GRUB-Boots-LUKS2-Disk-Encrypt]
}}
Without <nowiki></nowiki> the first item would not get parsed as a list item.
