Usage[sunting sumber]

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.

Function[sunting sumber]

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.

Other uses (of the title)[sunting sumber]

"This page is about … For other uses …"[sunting sumber]

{{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.
Note: this hatnote says "section", instead of "article" or "page".

"See also …"[sunting sumber]

Note: use when OTHER TOPIC is related to that of the current article and already contains a self-explanatory parenthetical.

"For …, see …"[sunting sumber]

{{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.


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

"For other uses, see …"[sunting sumber]

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 it forces a second use to be noted if unspecified by parameters.

"For other uses of …, see …"[sunting sumber]

"For more details on …, see …"[sunting sumber]

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

{{Details3}} allows any text to links:

"… redirects here. For other uses, see …"[sunting sumber]

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 ...

"Further information: …"[sunting sumber]

"… If you are seeking another topic, … consider adding it to …."[sunting sumber]

Note:USE1 can be omitted, resulting in language like {{For}} above.

Other people, places, etcetera[sunting sumber]

Other people[sunting sumber]

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 people}}, exists for options like "nicknamed", "known as", etc.

Other places[sunting sumber]

Other hurricanes[sunting sumber]

For articles on storms:

Other ships[sunting sumber]

For articles on ships:

Distinguish[sunting sumber]

"Not to be confused with …"[sunting sumber]

"… redirects here. It is not to be confused with …"[sunting sumber]

"Main article: …" etc.[sunting sumber]

{{Main is used to make summary style explicit, when used in a summary section for which there is also a separate article on the subject:

Wikipedia self-reference[sunting sumber]


Categories[sunting sumber]

Category-specific templates:

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[sunting sumber]

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.
