Template:Multi-section link

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This module, {{multi-section link}}, or its shortcut, {{mslink}}, makes a link to a section, listing multiple nested section names. The first parameter is the page name, and subsequent parameters are section names. The last section name is the one that is actually linked to.

SyntaxEdit

{{multi-section link|page|section 1|section 2|...}}

UsageEdit

It's easiest to demonstrate this template's use with a concrete example.

Say you want a nicely formatted link to Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Names and titles. You could use {{section link|Wikipedia:Manual of Style|Names and titles}} to give you Wikipedia:Manual of Style § Names and titles, but with this it is not very clear what the "Names and titles" section is referring to. {{Multi-section link}} solves this problem by allowing you to specify the intermediate section names, giving readers more context.
