[Edit] [🔄Purge] Template-info.png Template documentation

This template is used to create "Wikipedia logo"hatnotes to point to a small number of other related titles at the top of article "Wikipedia logo"sections (excluding the "Wikipedia logo"lead). It looks like this:

Do not use this template on top of a page, where hatnotes are for disambiguation and not for related topics (according to "Wikipedia logo"WP:RELATED). Do not use this template inside "Wikipedia logo"the "See also" section at the end of an article, or for links to other articles or subsections of the same article within regular article text. Where subsections are linked to, "Wikipedia logo"Template:Section link may be suitable instead. For use on category pages, the corresponding template is "Wikipedia logo"Template:Category see also.

Refer to the examples below to see how the template handles link targets containing section links and commas.

Basic usage
{{See also|page1|page2|page3|...}}
All parameters
{{See also|page1|page2|page3| ...
|label 1 = label 1|label 2 = label2|label 3 = label3| ...
|l1 = label1|l2 = label2|l3 = label3| ...
|selfref = yes|category = no}}


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 "Wikipedia logo"colon trick, and links to sections are automatically formatted as page § section, rather than the MediaWiki default of page#section.
  • label 1, label 2, label 3, ...; or l1, l2, l3, ...; optional labels for each of the pages to link to.
  • 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.



If no page names are supplied, the template outputs the following message with the (help) wikilink pointing to the "Errors" section of this page:

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

  1. No parameters were specified (the template code was {{See also}} with no pipe character nor page to link to). Please use {{See also|page}} instead.
  2. Some parameters were specified, but no page names were included. For example, the template text {{See also|selfref=yes}} will produce this error. Please use (for example) {{See also|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 {{See also|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: {{See also|1=1+1=2|2=2+2=4}}.

If you see this error message and are unsure of what to do, please post a message on "Wikipedia logo"the help desk (WP:HD), and someone should be able to help you.
