Usage

Usual syntax
{{Category see also|List of category names (one or more)}}

Parameters:

  1. Most are pipe character separated category page names; up to 40 pages
  2. LABEL=Some other phrase... → replaces defaults: "See also category:" or "See also categories:" (prefix messages).
    1. That phrase is normally italicized. When defining LABEL any wikimarkup or HTML text will be accepted.
    2. You may assume a space before the first category link.
    3. The template is written in an HTML <span>...</span> block, so can be used in-line as part of a sentence. Conversely, an editing must ensure a blank line or HTML "<br/>" follows it, or the text may be run the next line into it.
Simple examples
  1. {{Category see also|A}} →

  2. {{Category see also|A|B}} →

  3. {{Category see also|A|B|C}} →
example w/default message
{{Category see also|aaa|bbb|ccc|ddd|eee}}
would give (display as)
See also categories: aaa, bbb, ccc, ddd, and eee
example w/LABEL parameter option
{{Category see also|LABEL=See this list to evaluate whether one would be a better choice of |aaa | bbb | ccc | ddd | eee | fff }}
would give (display as)
See this list to evaluate whether one would be a better choice of categories: aaa, bbb, ccc, ddd, eee, and fff

General Documentation

Generic

  • {{Hatnote|CUSTOM TEXT}}
{{Hatnote|For other senses of this term, see [[etc…]]}}
  • {{Rellink|CUSTOM TEXT}}

More pages on the same topic ("Further information ...")

"Main article: …"

{{Main}} is used when used in a summary section for which there is also a separate article on the subject:

"For more details on …, see …"

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

  • {{Details|PAGE1|TOPIC}}

{{Details3}} allows any text to links:

"See also …"

Note: use only when OTHER TOPIC PAGE is related to current article and contains a self-explanatory parenthetical.

Other uses of the same title

"This page is about … For other uses …"

{{About}} is the main template for noting other uses.

  • {{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) →

Categories

Category-specific templates:

  • {{Category see also|THIS|THAT|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.
