This template is used to link to articles containing further information on a topic. It looks like this:

Further information: Article

It is typically used at the top of a section, when the topic of that section is covered in more detail by another page. It is useful for implementing "Wikipedia logo"summary style. The corresponding template for use on category pages is {{Cat more}}


Further information: WP:SUMMARYHATNOTE
One article
Further information: PAGE1
More than one article
Further information: PAGE1PAGE2, and PAGE3
With a topic
Further information: PAGE1 and PAGE2
All parameters
Further information: PAGE1 and PAGE2#SECTION


This template accepts the following parameters:

  • 1, 2, 3, ... - the pages to link to. At least one page name is required. Categories and files are automatically escaped with the colon trick, and links to sections are automatically formatted as page § section, rather than the MediaWiki default of page#section.
  • label1, label2, label3 ... alternative output labels for the corresponding linked pages. Aliases "label N" (with a space) and "lN" (short) are also available.
  • topic - the name of the topic
  • selfref - if set to "yes", "y", "true" or "1", adds the CSS class "selfref". This is used to denote self-references to Wikipedia. See Template:Selfref for more information.
  • category - if set to "no", "n", "false", or "0", suppresses the error tracking category (Category:Hatnote templates with errors). This only has an effect if the first positional parameter (the page to link to) is omitted.

Interwiki links

To link to articles on foreign language Wikipedias, use interwiki links, prefixing the page name in the foreign Wikipedia with the required interwiki language code:

Basic interwiki links to articles in Spanish and German
Further information: and 
Multiple interwiki links with language names

Note that you can use the TOPIC and LABEL parameters in combination to produce this effect:

{{Further|topic=Eero Heinonen, in|de:Eero Heinonen|es:Eero Heinonen|fi:Eero Heinonen|l1=German|l2=Spanish|l3=Finnish}}
Further information:, , and 

Template {{Further ill}} can produce similar links, but in a format more like that of {{interlanguage link}}.


If no page names are supplied, the template will output the following message:

  • Further information: [[{{{1}}}]]

If you see this error message, it is for one of four reasons:

  1. No parameters were specified (the template code was {{further}}). Please use {{further|page}} instead.
  2. Some parameters were specified, but no page names were included. For example, the template text {{further|selfref=yes}} will produce this error. Please use (for example) {{further|page|selfref=yes}} instead.
  3. A page name was specified, but it contains an equals sign ("="). The equals sign has a special meaning in template code, and because of this it cannot be used in template parameters that do not specify a parameter name. For example, the template code {{further|1+1=2|2+2=4}} will produce this error. To work around this, you can specify the parameter name explicitly by using 1=, 2, etc., before the page name, like this: {{further|1=1+1=2|2=2+2=4}}.
  4. You tried to access the module directly by using {{#invoke:(module name)|further|text}}. Use of #invoke in this way has been disabled for performance reasons. Please use {{(module name)|text}} instead.

If you see this error message and are unsure of what to do, please post a message on the help desk, and someone should be able to help you.

Pages that contain this error message are tracked in Category:Hatnote templates with errors.
