If the name of the main article is different than the name of the category — for example: if the main article for Category:Dead or Alive is Dead or Alive (series) — then you will need to use one parameter to specify the article:

Hatnote templates[स्रोत सम्पादन]

For a summary page on how to use these templates, see the example page here. For the full editing guideline on hatnotes, see Wikipedia:Hatnote.

Generic[स्रोत सम्पादन]

For example: {{dablink|For other senses of this term, see etc...}} (Note: text is adaptable, but fails to standardize hatnotes) →
Also a basic template, which is extended and used in specific template below.

Other uses[स्रोत सम्पादन]

"This page is about ... For other uses ..."[स्रोत सम्पादन]

{{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) →
  • {{About|||PAGE1|and|PAGE2}}
Note: {{for||PAGE1|PAGE2}} produces the same result.
  • {{This|USE}}
Note: {{About|USE}} produces the same result: →
  • {{This|USE|PAGE1}}
Note: {{About|USE||PAGE1}} (with one empty parameter) produces the same result: →

"For other uses, see ..."[स्रोत सम्पादन]

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 that it says "section", instead of "article" or "page".
Note: same as {{about}}, except it forces a second use to be noted if unspecified by parameters.

"For ..., see ..."[स्रोत सम्पादन]

{{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.

  • {{for|OTHER TOPIC}} (disambiguous) →
  • {{for|OTHER TOPIC|PAGE1}}
  • {{for||PAGE1|PAGE2}}Error: no context parameter provided. Use {{other uses}} for "other uses" hatnotes. (help).

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