Otheruses templates[തിരുത്തുക]

To discuss these templates as a whole, please see: Disambiguation (talk). If you wish to discuss general wordings, rather than the wording or formatting of this specific template, don't post here or else what you say will probably go unnoticed.

For a summary page on how to use these templates, see the example page here.


For example: {{dablink|For other senses of this term, see [[etc...]]}} . (Note: adaptable, but fails to standardize hatnotes).
  • {{Selfref|TEXT}}
Note: similar in usage to the Dablink template, but 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: Avoid self-references for more details).

Other uses[തിരുത്തുക]


{{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)

Other uses[തിരുത്തുക]

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: use when there is both a singular and plural disambiguation page. (Only works when the plural is formed by simply adding a "s" at the end)
Note: use when there are two disambiguation pages, such as a noun and an adjective or a singular and irregular plural. There are only two parameters, at least one parameter is required.
Note: {{for|PAGE1|PAGE2}} and {{about|PAGE1|and|PAGE2}} produce the same result.
Note: same as {{about}}, except that it says "section", instead of "article" or "page".


{{For}} can be used instead of {{About}} so as not to display: This page is about USE1. but still specify as 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 empty first parameter).

However, it is somewhat more clear 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. For example {{For3}} appends the word the in its mention of the second parameter, then generating a link, using either the second or (if present) the third parameter, as a parenthetical. Additionally, {{The}} is simply a rendering of {{For3}}, without bothering with the optional first argument.

See also[തിരുത്തുക]

ഇതും കാണുക: OTHER TOPIC
Note: use when OTHER TOPIC is related to that of the current article and already contains a self-explanatory parenthetical.
ഇതും കൂടി കാണുക: the categories THIS, THAT, and THE OTHER.

Other people[തിരുത്തുക]

Note: defaults to "named" as in {{Other persons}}, exists for options like "nicknamed", "known as", etc.
Note: same as {{Other persons}} except uses "people" instead of "persons"

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.

Please do not edit these templates, unless you know what you are doing.

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 another template already, 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 test cases.
