Other uses

"This page is about ... For other uses ..."

{{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}}
    This page is about USE1. For other uses, see See (disambiguation).
  • {{About|USE1||PAGE2}} (When the disambiguation page has a different name — Note the empty second parameter) →
    This page is about USE1. For other uses, see PAGE2.
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2}} (When there is only one other use) →
    This page is about USE1. For USE2, see PAGE2.
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|and|PAGE3}} (Two pages for USE2) →
    This page is about USE1. For USE2, see PAGE2 and PAGE3.
  • {{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) →
    This page is about USE1. For USE2, see PAGE2. For USE3, see PAGE3. For USE4, see PAGE4. For USE5, see PAGE5.
  • {{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) →
    This page is about USE1. For USE2, see PAGE2. For USE3, see PAGE3. For other uses, see See (disambiguation).
  • {{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) →
    This page is about USE1. For USE2, see PAGE2. For USE3, see PAGE3. For other uses, see PAGE4.
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|other uses|PAGE4|and}}
    This page is about USE1. For USE2, see PAGE2. For USE3, see PAGE3. For other uses, see PAGE4 and See (disambiguation).
  • {{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) →
    For USE2, see PAGE2. For USE3, see PAGE3. For other uses, see See (disambiguation).
  • {{About|||PAGE1|and|PAGE2}}
    For other uses, see PAGE1 and PAGE2.
Note: {{for||PAGE1|PAGE2}} produces the same result.
Note: {{About|USE}} produces the same result: →
This page is about USE. For other uses, see See (disambiguation).
Note: {{About|USE||PAGE1}} (with one empty parameter) produces the same result: →
This page is about USE. For other uses, see PAGE1.
Note: this hatnote says "section", instead of "article" or "page".

"For other uses, see ..."

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 ..., 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.

Variations

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

"For other uses of ..., see ..."

"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.

{{Details3}} allows any text to links:

"Further information: ..."

  • {{See|OTHER TOPIC}}

Example with multiple parameters

  • {{Further|[[Article 1]], [[Article 2]], and [[Article Something#3|Article 3]]}}
Further information: [[Article 1, Article 2, and Article 3]]

This template takes a single parameter of any length.

"See also ..."

Note: use when OTHER TOPIC is related to that of the current article and already contains a self-explanatory parenthetical.

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

  • {{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}}
Variations
  • {{Redirect-acronym|TERM|PAGE}}
  • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE|PAGE1}}
  • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2}}
  • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3}}
  • {{Redirect3|REDIRECT|TEXT}}
  • {{Redirect4|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Redirect6|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{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) →

Other people

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 persons}}, exists for options like "nicknamed", "known as", etc.

FamilySearch Wiki self-reference

Note: used for hatnotes that don't make sense on mirrors of FamilySearch Wiki, such as linking an article from the main namespace to the FamilySearch Wiki namespace. (See: Manual of Style (self-references to avoid) for more details).

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.

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? Before creating a new template, see: 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.
