This module is used to detect the page type of a given page. It detects redirect pages automatically and is highly customisable. It can be used on its own or as a meta-module to create other page-type-detection templates. This module can also be accessed using {{pagetype}}.

Basic usage

For simple detection of the page type of the current page, use the default settings:


That will produce the following results, depending on the page type or the namespace:

Page type / namespace Output
Redirects (in any namespace) redirect
Main namespace लेख
File namespace चित्र
Template namespace ढाँचा
Category namespace श्रेणी
Module namespace मोड्युल
Book namespace पुस्तक
Other namespaces पृष्ठ

If the module is used on a talk page, it will detect the page type for the corresponding subject page.

Code Result
{{#invoke:pagetype|main}} मोड्युल

Page parameter

You can use the page parameter to make the module act as though it was called from that page.

{{#invoke:pagetype|main|page=page name}}

Adding and removing namespaces

It is possible to specify different behaviour for each namespace than that described in the basic usage section. For example, you might want the module to display "user page" for pages in the user namespace, instead of the default "page". To do this, you can use the code |user=yes. This looks up the typical name used for pages in the user namespace, in this case "user page", and uses that text when the module is used with a page in the user namespace. To use this with other namespaces, use the namespace name in lower case as a parameter:

| user              = yes
| wikipedia         = yes
| project           = yes
| wp                = yes
| mediawiki         = yes
| help              = yes
| portal            = yes
| draft             = yes
| education program = yes
| timedtext         = yes
| topic             = yes
| special           = yes
| media             = yes

You can use any of the following to specify the namespace: "yes", "y", "true" or "1". They can be used in any combination of upper and lower case. (These values are defined by Module:Yesno.)

The default text for these namespaces is as follows:

Page type / namespace Output
User namespace user page
Wikipedia namespace project page
MediaWiki namespace interface page
Help namespace help page
Portal namespace portal
Draft namespace draft
Education program namespace education program page
Timed Text namespace Timed Text page
Topic namespace topic
Special namespace special page
Media namespace file

You can use a similar process to remove any of the default namespace values as well. For example, if you use the code |template=no, then the module will display "page" when used on a template page, rather than the default "template".

| main     = no
| file     = no
| template = no
| category = no
| module   = no
| book     = no

The following values will all work to remove namespace values: "no", "n", "false" or "0". They can be used in any combination of upper and lower case.

Default namespace sets

As well as adding and removing individual namespaces, it is possible to specify different sets of namespaces by using the |defaultns=. There are four different sets available: all, extended, none and the default set. These sets allow you to specify many namespaces at once, without having to use all of the individual namespace parameters. Namespaces are set according to the following table:

Namespace Value of |defaultns= Output
none extended all Other values
Main N YesY YesY YesY article
User N YesY YesY N user page
Wikipedia N YesY YesY N project page
File N YesY YesY YesY file

Custom namespace values

It is possible to specify a custom value for any namespace:

| main              = custom text
| user              = custom text
| wikipedia         = custom text
| project           = custom text
| wp                = custom text
| file              = custom text
| image             = custom text
| mediawiki         = custom text
| template          = custom text
| help              = custom text
| category          = custom text
| portal            = custom text
| book              = custom text
| draft             = custom text
| education program = custom text
| timedtext         = custom text
| module            = custom text
| topic             = custom text
| special           = custom text
| media             = custom text

Talk parameter

Normally, the module will treat talk pages as if they were in the corresponding subject namespace. However, if the talk parameter is set, the module will treat talk pages separately from subject pages. The talk parameter sets values for all talk pages, i.e. pages in the Talk: namespace, pages in the User talk: namespace, pages in the Wikipedia talk: namespace, and so on.

{{#invoke:pagetype|main|talk=custom text}}

The default value for "talk=yes" is "talk page".

Main namespace classes

For pages in the main namespace, it is possible to add a class value in the first positional parameter:


If the class value matches one of the values in the table below, it will produce an alternative to the default output of article.

Class Class values Output
Disambiguation page disambiguation, disambig, disamb, dab page
No applicable class na, n/a page

You can input the class value in any combination of upper and lower case.

Custom main namespace classes

It is also possible to specify a custom value for the main namespace classes:

{{#invoke:pagetype|main|class|dab=custom text|na=custom text}}

This works the same way that it does for the custom namespace page types. Possible parameters are:

  • dab: a custom value for disambiguation-class pages. If set to "yes", "y", "true" or "1", this produces "disambiguation page". If set to "no", "n", "false" or "0", no custom value is produced. If set to any other value it produces that text.
  • na: a custom value for NA-class pages. It works in the same way as the dab parameter. The default value for "yes" etc. is "page".

{{#invoke:pagetype|main|page=United Kingdom|na}} पृष्ठ
{{#invoke:pagetype|main|page=United Kingdom|na|na=custom text}} custom text


By default, the module automatically detects redirects in all namespace. It is not possible to specify redirect behaviour by namespace, but you can turn redirect detection off, or use a custom value for redirect pages.

{{#invoke:pagetype|main|redirect=custom text}}

{{#invoke:pagetype|main|page=UK|redirect=custom text}} प्रमुख पृष्ठ

Other namespaces

By default, the module produces "page" if used from a namespace that hasn't been specified. This value can be changed with the |other= parameter:

{{#invoke:pagetype|main|other=custom text}}
