Other uses (of the title)

"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 → Templat:About
  • {{About|USE1||PAGE2 (When the disambiguation page has a different name – Note the empty second parameter) → Templat:About
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2 (When there is only one other use) → Templat:About
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|and|PAGE3 (Two pages for USE2) → Templat:About
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2#SUBSECTION{{!}}PAGE2TITLE (Using the {{!}} template to give the link a different title) → Templat:About
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|USE4|PAGE4|USE5 (When there are up to four other uses – You should generally create a disambiguation page at this point) → Templat:About
  • {{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) → Templat:About
  • {{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) →Templat:About
  • {{About|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|other uses|PAGE4|and → Templat:About
  • {{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) → Templat:About
  • {{About|||PAGE1|and|PAGE2 → Templat:About
    Note: {{for||PAGE1|PAGE2 produces the same result.
  • {{Other uses-section|USE (disambiguous) → Templat:Other uses-section
    Note: this hatnote says "section", instead of "article" or "page".

"See also …"

  • {{See also|OTHER TOPIC|OTHER TOPIC2 → Templat:See also
    Note: use when OTHER TOPIC is related to that of the current article and already contains a self-explanatory parenthetical.
  • {{See also2|[[OTHER TOPIC]]|[[OTHER TOPIC2]]|[[OTHER TOPIC3]] and other text → Templat:See also2

"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||PAGE1|PAGE2 →

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

  • {{For2|OTHER TOPIC|CUSTOM TEXT → Templat:For2

"For other uses, see …"

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

  • {{Other uses (disambiguous) → Templat:Other uses
  • {{Other uses|PAGE1 → Templat:Other uses
  • {{Other uses|PAGE1|PAGE2 → Templat:Other uses

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.

  • {{Other uses2|PAGE1 (disambiguous) → Templat:Other uses2
    Note: adds "(disambiguation)" to whatever is input as the PAGE1.
    Note: {{Other uses|PAGE1 (disambiguation) produces the same result.
  • {{Two other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2 → Templat:Two other uses
    Note: same as {{about}}, except it forces a second use to be noted if unspecified by parameters.
  • {{Two other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3 → Templat:Two other uses
  • {{Three other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3 Templat:Three other uses
  • {{Three other uses||USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3 → Templat:Three other uses
  • {{Three other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2|USE3|PAGE3|USE4|PAGE4 → Templat:Three other uses

"For other uses of …, see …"

  • {{Other uses of (disambiguous) → Templat:Other uses of
  • {{Other uses of|TOPIC (disambiguous) → Templat:Other uses of
  • {{Other uses of|TOPIC|PAGE1 → Templat:Other uses of

"For more details on …, see …"

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

  • {{Details|Article|TOPIC → Templat:Details

{{Details3}} allows any text to links:

  • {{Details3|[[article 1]], [[article 2]], and [[article 3]]|TOPIC → Templat:Details3

  • {{Redirect6|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|‌|PAGE2 → Templat:Redirect6
  • {{Redirect7|"REDIRECT1", "REDIRECT2", and "REDIRECT3"|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2 → Templat:Redirect7
    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) → Templat:Redirect10
    ... Not to be confused with ...
  • {{Redirect-distinguish|REDIRECT|PAGE1 → Templat:Redirect-distinguish

  • {{Main|Main Article → Templat:Main
  • {{Main|Main Article|Article2 → Templat:Main

Wiki self-reference



Category-specific templates:

  • {{Category see also|THIS|THAT|THE OTHER → Templat:Category see also

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.

  • {{Cat main|MAIN ARTICLE → Templat:Cat main
  • {{Category explanation|colourless green ideas → Templat:Category explanation
  • {{Category pair|TOPIC1|TOPIC2 → Templat:Category pair
  • {{CatPreceding|OTHER TOPIC → Templat:CatPreceding
  • {{CatSucceeding|OTHER TOPIC → Templat:CatSucceeding
  • {{Contrast|OTHERCAT|OTHERCAT2 →
  • {{Contrast|OTHERCAT|OTHERCAT2|plural=yes →

Family names




User pages

  • {{This user talk|TOPIC|PAGE1 →

Templat:This user talk


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.
