Usage[सम्पादन गर्ने]

Using {{Hatnote|text}} formats text into the standard stylistic for a Wikipedia hatnote. That produces a short note placed at the top of an article to provide disambiguation of closely related terms or summarise a topic, explaining its boundaries.

Usage and purpose[सम्पादन गर्ने]

This template is primarily used to add a correctly formatted hatnote to a page. Often, but not always, this is a disambiguation link at the top of article pages. It places an HTML div- / div block around the text entered as its only argument, which provides standardized formatting (contents are indented and italicized in most displays); it also isolates the contained code to make sure that it is interpreted correctly.

This template is also used as the "meta-template" for additional specialized disambiguation link templates; see Wikipedia:Otheruses templates (example usage) for a list.

The template does not automatically create links of any kind. Links and other desired formatting must be explicitly added, using normal Wikipedia markup.

Template contents[सम्पादन गर्ने]

<div class="dablink"></div>

Hatnote templates[सम्पादन गर्ने]

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

Generic[सम्पादन गर्ने]

For example: {{dablink|For other senses of this term, see etc...}} (Note: text is adaptable, but fails to standardize hatnotes) →
Also a basic template, which is extended and used in specific template below.

Other uses[सम्पादन गर्ने]

"This page is about ... For other uses ..."[सम्पादन गर्ने]

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

"For other uses, see ..."[सम्पादन गर्ने]

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


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 that it says "section", instead of "article" or "page".
  • {{Two other uses|USE1|USE2|PAGE2}}
Note: same as {{about}}, except it forces a second use to be noted if unspecified by parameters.

"For ..., see ..."[सम्पादन गर्ने]

{{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|PAGE1}}
  • {{for||PAGE1|PAGE2}}

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


"For other uses of ..., see ..."[सम्पादन गर्ने]

"Further information"[सम्पादन गर्ने]

Example with multiple parameters

This template takes a single parameter of any length.

"See also ..."[सम्पादन गर्ने]

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}}

Other people[सम्पादन गर्ने]

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[सम्पादन गर्ने]

Other hurricanes[सम्पादन गर्ने]

For articles on storms:

  • {{Other hurricanes|DISAMBIG}}
  • {{Other hurricanes|DISAMBIG|THIS}}

Other ships[सम्पादन गर्ने]

For articles on ships:

Wikipedia self-reference[सम्पादन गर्ने]

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).

Article in a series[सम्पादन गर्ने]

Details[सम्पादन गर्ने]

{{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. Examples:

  • {{Details|Article|on}}
  • Article is the name of an article with more detail on the subject. For example, {{Details|cats}} generates →
  • on is optional and replaces the phrase "this topic" with the specified text. For example,
  • {{Details|cats|felines}}
  • {{Details2}} is used to make summary style explicit. To be used in a section for which there is also a separate article on the subject.
  • {{Details2|Article|on}}

Article is the name of an article with more detail on the subject. It must be an article that ends with a full stop, if not {{Details}} should be used.
on is optionally what the article gives more details on, replacing 'this topic'.

{{Details3}} is used to make summary style explicit. To be used in a section for which there is also a separate article on the subject.

  • Article... are the wikilinks of the appropriate articles with more detail on the subject.
  • on is optionally what the article gives more details on, replacing 'this topic'
  • more is optionally how the article relates to the section, replacing more details.

" ... redirects here. For other uses, see ..."[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT||PAGE1}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|and|PAGE2}}
  • {{Redirect|REDIRECT|USE1|PAGE1|USE2|PAGE2|and|PAGE3}}
  • {{Redirect-acronym|TERM|PAGE}}
  • {{Redirect2|REDIRECT1|REDIRECT2}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{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.

"Not to be confused with ..." (Distinguish)[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • {{Distinguish|PAGE1}}
  • {{Distinguish|PAGE1|PAGE2|PAGE3|PAGE4}}
  • {{Distinguish2|TEXT}}

".. redirects here. It is not to be confused with ..."[सम्पादन गर्ने]

  • {{Redirect-distinguish|REDIRECT|PAGE1}}
  • {{Redirect-distinguish|REDIRECT|PAGE1|PAGE2|PAGE3|PAGE4}}
  • {{Redirect-distinguish2|REDIRECT|TEXT}}

Comprehensive lists[सम्पादन गर्ने]

Categories[सम्पादन गर्ने]

Category-specific templates produce bold category names.

यी पनि हेर्नुहोस् श्रेणीहरू: THIS, THAT, र THE OTHER

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[सम्पादन गर्ने]

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.
