[edit] [purge] Template-info.svg Template documentation

{{For example}} is used to provide a link to an article or category that illustrates a point. It is placed at the head of article sections.


{{for example|Article|Description}}

  • The required first parameter is the full name of the article.
  • The optional second parameter is a "pretty" name that will be displayed (if given) instead of the full article title. This is especially useful if the full title is long.
  • Note: no newlines are permitted; otherwise the article links will be broken.
