Note: Not to be confused with Template:User

Usage

This template provides a way to link to a userpage and display just the username, like [[User:Example|Example]]. This may not help much for a short username like "Example", but it can be more useful with long usernames such as [[User:Guywh0sitsbehindphilip12|Guywhositsbehindphilip12]].

Useful on discussion pages to remove clutter from User pre fix.

Example

{{User link|Example}}

gives Example

Alternative

The desired result can also be achieved using the pipe trick feature of the MediaWiki software. For example, the wikitext

[[User:Example|]]

gives Example

Other user information templates

User information templates provide informational links for a user; they are similar to signatures, but often provide additional information, and may be used by other users.
