{{About}} is a commonly used hatnote template on Wikipedia, and so should be placed at the top of an article, linking the reader to other articles with similar titles or concepts that they may have been seeking instead. The Template:About has several formats, including:

  • {{About|USE1}}             →    This page is about USE1. For other uses, see Pagename (disambiguation).
  • {{About|USE1||PAGE2}}        →    This page is about USE1. For other uses, see PAGE2.
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2}} →    This page is about USE1. For USE2, see PAGE2.
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|and|PAGE3}} →    This page is about USE1. For USE2, see PAGE2 and PAGE3.

For more options, find "{About}" in the text below.

For reference, see Wikipedia:hatnotes and documentation below.

Hatnote templates[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

For a summary page on how to use these templates, see the example page here. For the full editing guideline on hatnotes, see Wikipedia:Hatnote.

Generic[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

  • {{Hatnote|CUSTOM TEXT}}
{{Hatnote|For other senses of this term, see [[etc…]]}}

More pages on the same topic ("Further information ...")[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

"Main article: …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

{{Main}} is used to make summary style explicit, when used in a summary section for which there is also a separate article on the subject:

"For more details on …, see …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

{{Details}} can supplement {{Main}} in summary sections, or can indicate more details in nonsummary sections:

  • {{Details|PAGE1}}
  • {{Details|PAGE1|TOPIC}}

{{Details3}} allows any text to links:

"See also …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

  • {{See also|TOPIC PAGE|OTHER TOPIC PAGE}}
ಇವನ್ನೂ ನೋಡಿ: TOPIC PAGE ಮತ್ತು OTHER TOPIC PAGE
Note: use only when OTHER TOPIC PAGE is related to current article and contains a self-explanatory parenthetical.

"Further information: …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

Other uses of the same title[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

"This page is about … For other uses …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

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

Note. When used in 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#SUBSECTION{{!}}PAGE2TITLE}} (Using the {{!}} template to give the link a different title) →
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|USE4|PAGE4|USE5|PAGE5}} (When there are up to four 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.
Note: this hatnote says "section", instead of "article" or "page".

"For …, see …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

{{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.

Variations

As with {{Other uses}}, there is a whole family of "for" templates.[clarification needed]

  • {{For2|OTHER TOPIC|CUSTOM TEXT}}

"For other uses, see …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

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

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.

Note: adds "(disambiguation)" to whatever is input as the PAGE1.
Note: {{Other uses|PAGE1 (disambiguation)}} produces the same result.
Note: same as {{about}}, except it forces a second use to be noted if unspecified by parameters.

"For other uses of …, see …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

"… redirects here. For other uses, see …"[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT||PAGE1}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|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}}
  • {{Redirect6|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Redirect6|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1||PAGE2}}
Variations
  • For two sources:
    • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2}} (disambiguous) →
    • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE}}
    • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2||PAGE1}}
    • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE|PAGE1}}
    • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2}}
    • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3}}
    • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|USE4|PAGE4}}
    • {{Redirect4|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2}} (disambiguous) →
    • {{Redirect4|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE|TEXT}}
  • For three sources:
  • {{Redirect3|REDIRECT|TEXT}} or {{Redirect text|REDIRECT|TEXT}}
  • {{Redirect-synonym|TERM|OTHER TOPIC}}
... Not to be confused with ...

Other people[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

Note: same as {{About}} except uses "other people" instead of "other uses" if only 1 parameter is used
Note: defaults to "named" as in {{Other people}}, exists for options like "nicknamed", "known as", etc.

Categories[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

Category-specific templates:

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.

Family names[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

Lists[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

User pages[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

Notes[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

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 {{Hatnote}} instead? Before creating a new template, see the template namespace guideline.
  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? Before making any changes, see Template sandbox and test cases.
