Template:Redirect-several

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

This template can be used on pages which are the WP:PRIMARYREDIRECT for several terms which also have corresponding disambiguation pages. This template is compatible with up to 10 redirects. It can also be used targeting non-disambiguation articles, although it adds (disambiguation) to the end of each of its parameters by default. This can be modified through the dab parameter. It can also be used without linking at all by changing the link parameter, which may be useful on pages which have many redirects and other usages, but which all follow a regular pattern. The text parameter should also be used in such circumstances, to describe the titles of the redirects.

UsageEdit

Full inline formatEdit

{{Redirect-several |link= |dab= |text= |see= |OtherUse1 |OtherUse2 |OtherUse3 |OtherUse4 |OtherUse5 |OtherUse6 |OtherUse7 |OtherUse8 |OtherUse9 |OtherUse10}}

{{Redirect-several

|link = <!-- whether the targets should be linked to or not; defaults to 'yes' -->
|dab = <!-- toggles whether to put " (disambiguation)" on the end of the targets' links; defaults to 'yes' -->

ExamplesEdit

With one to ten filled parametersEdit

With more than ten parametersEdit

Note – this template does not support more than ten parameters. Above is an example of what not to do.

With an empty parameterEdit

The following template use with three parameters are fine:

However, with three parameters but with an empty the second parameter, a problem arises:

Note: This causes only "REDIRECT1" to display since "REDIRECT2" is missing in the empty parameter within the two pipes with no content between them. If an entry is missed, the template only shows the entries before the missing entry. No error message is displayed.

With link=offEdit

  • {{Redirect-several|link=off|the contents of Category:Porridge|the page of the same name but without the word 'porridge'|another unlinked parameter}}
  • {{Redirect-several|TEST1|TEST2|TEST3|TEST4|TEST5|TEST6|TEST7|TEST8|TEST9|TEST10}}

With dab=offEdit

With text parameterEdit
