Template:See also

Template documentation

Usage

{{See also}} is used to create Wikipedia-based hatnotes to point to a small number of other, related, titles at the top of article sections according to layout guidelines. It is not for use in the "See also" section at the bottom of an article.


{{See also|Article 1|...|Article 15}}
  • One to fifteen articles can be listed.
  • The word "and" is always placed between the final two entries.
  • If more than 15 entries are supplied, a message will be displayed pointing out the problem.
  • You can use parameters label 1 to label 15 to specify alternative labels for the links.
adding newline characters will break article links <1-- presumably because of the leading ":" -->

Example

Code Result
{{See also|Article}}
{{See also|Article|label 1=Alternative title for Article}}
{{See also|Article|Article 2}}
{{See also|Article|Article 2|Article 3}}
{{See also|Article|Article 2|label 2=Alternative title for Article 2}}

And so on up to 15 parameters.

See also: Link to subsection

It is possible to direct this template to link a particular section within another article.

Other uses (of the title)

"This page is about … For other uses …"

{{About}} is the main template for noting other uses.

Note. When used in the main namespace, the word "page" in the following hatnotes is replaced by "article".

  • {{About|USE1}}
  • {{About|USE1||PAGE2}} (When the disambiguation page has a different name — Note the empty second parameter) →
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2}} (When there is only one other use) →
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|and|PAGE3}} (Two pages for USE2) →
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|USE4|PAGE4|USE5|PAGE5}} (When there are up to five other uses — You should generally create a disambiguation page at this point) →
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|other uses}} (When there are several standard other uses and also a disambiguation page with default name — Note that the last page name is not specified) →
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|other uses|PAGE4}} (When there are several standard other uses and also a disambiguation page with non-default name) →
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|other uses|PAGE4|and}}
  • {{About||USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|other uses}} (When you don't need to state the focus of this article/page — Note the empty first parameter) →
  • {{About|||PAGE1|and|PAGE2}}
Note: {{for||PAGE1|PAGE2}} produces the same result.
  • {{Other uses-section|USE}} (disambiguous) →
Note: this hatnote says "section", instead of "article" or "page".

"See also …"

  • {{See also|OTHER TOPIC|OTHER TOPIC2}}
Note: use when OTHER TOPIC is related to that of the current article and already contains a self-explanatory parenthetical.
  • {{See also2|[[OTHER TOPIC]]|[[OTHER TOPIC2]]|[[OTHER TOPIC3]] and other text}}

"For …, see …"

{{For}} can be used instead of {{About}} so as not to display: This page is about USE1. but still specify a specific other use. This effect can also be achieved by using an empty first parameter in {{About}} as in:

For example: {{for|OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1}} is the same as {{About||OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1}} (note the empty first parameter).

However, it is somewhat clearer when using the {{For}} template, since the word "about" does not appear in the statement.

  • {{For|OTHER TOPIC}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{For|OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1}}
  • {{For|OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1|PAGE2}}
  • {{For|OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1|PAGE2|PAGE3}}
  • {{For||PAGE1|PAGE2}}
Variations

As with {{Other uses}}, there are a whole family of "for" templates.

  • {{For2|OTHER TOPIC|CUSTOM TEXT}}

"For other uses, see …"

When such a wordy hatnote as {{About}} is not needed, {{Other uses}} is often useful.

  • {{Other uses}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Other uses|PAGE1}}
  • {{Other uses|PAGE1|PAGE2}}
Variations

There are, historically, a whole family of "other uses" templates for specific cases. {{About}} is the standard hatnote for "other uses" and many of them can be specified using the {{About}} template. However, the individual templates may be easier to use in certain contexts.

Here are the variations and (when appropriate) the equivalents using the {{About}}, {{Other uses}} or {{For}} templates.

  • {{Other uses2|PAGE1}} (disambiguous) →
Note: adds "(disambiguation)" to whatever is input as the PAGE1.
Note: {{Other uses|PAGE1 (disambiguation)}} produces the same result.
  • {{Two other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2}}
Note: same as {{about}}, except it forces a second use to be noted if unspecified by parameters.
  • {{Two other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3}}
  • {{Three other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3}}
  • {{Three other uses||USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3}}
  • {{Three other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|USE4|PAGE4}}

"For other uses of …, see …"

  • {{Other uses of}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Other uses of|TOPIC}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Other uses of|TOPIC|PAGE1}}

"For more details on …, see …"

{{Details}} is used to make summary style explicit. To be used in a section for which there is also a separate article on the subject.

  • {{Details|Article|TOPIC}}

{{Details3}} allows any text to links:

  • {{Details3|[[article 1]], [[article 2]], and [[article 3]]|TOPIC}}

"… redirects here. For other uses, see …"

  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT||PAGE1}}

  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|and|PAGE2}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2|and|PAGE3}}

  • {{Redirect3|REDIRECT|TEXT}}
  • {{Redirect4|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2}} (disambiguous) →

  • {{Redirect6|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|‌|PAGE2}}
  • {{Redirect7|"REDIRECT1", "REDIRECT2", and "REDIRECT3"|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2}}
Note: If the number of pages redirecting to the target page is two, {{Redirect2}} can be used instead. If the number is three and there are three corresponding disambiguation pages, {{Redirect10}} can be used.
  • {{Redirect10|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|REDIRECT3}} (disambiguous) →
... Not to be confused with ...
  • {{Redirect-distinguish|REDIRECT|PAGE1}}
  • {{Redirect-distinguish|REDIRECT|PAGE1|PAGE2|PAGE3|PAGE4}}
  • {{Redirect-distinguish2|REDIRECT|TEXT}}

Categories

Category-specific templates produce bold category names.

This is a template for linking categories horizontally. Horizontal linkage is often the right solution when vertical linkage (i.e. as sub-category and parent category) is not appropriate. In most cases, this template should be used on both categories to create reciprocal linkage between the two categories.

  • {{CatPreceding|OTHER TOPIC}}
  • {{CatSucceeding|OTHER TOPIC}}
  • {{Category pair|TOPIC1|TOPIC2}}
  • {{Contrast|OTHERCAT|OTHERCAT2}}
  • {{Contrast2|OTHERCAT|OTHERCAT2}} (plural) →

Notes

Do not use subst: with these templates, as that will prevent:

  1. propagating changes as the template is modified; and the
  2. What links here (WLH) listing.

These templates are used in thousands of articles; therefore, changing the syntax could break thousands of articles. If you wish to create or edit a disambiguation or redirection template, first ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Is there already a template that will do this job? Since many disambiguation and redirection templates have already been created, first check: Category:Disambiguation and redirection templates.
  2. Do I really need a new template for this? Will it likely be used on any other articles or should I just use {{dablink}} instead?
  3. If I change the parameters around on an existing template, do I know what the result will be? Will it break existing uses of the template and if so, can I fix all of the errors?
