Hatnote templates

Shortcut:
T:HAT

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

Generic

{{Dablink|For other senses of this term, see etc...}}

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}}
  • {{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.
Note: {{About|USE}} produces the same result: →
  • {{This|USE|PAGE1}}
Note: {{About|USE||PAGE1}} (with one empty parameter) produces the same result: →
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.

  • {{For|OTHER TOPIC}} (disambiguous) →
For OTHER TOPIC, see CatPreceding (disambiguation).
  • {{For|OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1}}
For OTHER TOPIC, see PAGE1.
  • {{For|OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1|PAGE2}}
For OTHER TOPIC, see PAGE1 and PAGE2.
  • {{For|OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1|PAGE2|PAGE3}}
For OTHER TOPIC, see PAGE1 and PAGE2.
  • {{For||PAGE1|PAGE2}}
For , see PAGE1 and PAGE2.
Variations

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

  • {{For2|OTHER TOPIC|CUSTOM TEXT}}

"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.

  • {{Details|Article|TOPIC}}

{{Details3}} allows any text to links:

"Further information: ..."

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 ..."

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

"... 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.

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.

Other places


"Other vehicles named..."

For other vehicles with the same name:

Distinguish

"Not to be confused with ..."

".. redirects here. It is not to be confused with ..."

"... is a common misspelling of ...

"Main article: ..." and more

  • {{Main|Main Article}}
Main article: Main Article
  • {{Main|Main Article|Article2}}
Main article: Main Article

Wikipedia self-reference

Note: used for hatnotes that don't make sense on mirrors of Wikipedia, such as linking an article from the main namespace to the Wikipedia 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.

  • {{CatPreceding|OTHER TOPIC}}
See also the preceding Category:OTHER TOPIC.
CatPreceding is often contrasted with OTHERCAT.
CatPreceding are very often contrasted with OTHERCAT.

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.
