PSA: Disambiguation Pages

Good day to you all! Recently, we've added a template to help link back to disambiguation pages from the pages they link to. Disambiguation pages are pages that are meant for a list of pages with similar titles. For example, the disambiguation page Pip (disambiguation) links to both Pip Pirrup and "Pip". By using this new template, we've made linked both of those pages back to Pip (disambiguation) for easier navigation and the ability to find other related articles. To use this new template, do the following:

  • First, verify that the page is linked from a disambiguation page.
  • Second, take note of the full page name of the disambiguation page.
  • Third, add the template below to the top of the page you wish to link back to the disambiguation page:

Example: Entering in {{LinkDisambig|Disambiguation Pages}} produces:

For other uses, see Disambiguation Pages.
  • Note: Do not use this template on the disambiguation page itself or on a page that is not linked from a disambiguation page.
  • Note: If there is a template on a page, such as the Character Template, Episode Template, or Location Template, add the LinkDisambig template below it.

Main Article Linking

The second thing I would like to touch on is linking a text back to an article. Some times it may become necessary to add a short paragraph about something that already has an article. To do so, do the following:

  • First, take note of the page you are linking to.
  • Second, add the template below to the top of the section or paragraph you wish to link back to an article:
    • {{main|PAGE TITLE HERE}}

Example: Entering in {{main|Disambiguation Pages}} produces:

Main article: Disambiguation Pages

  • Note: Use this template in the correct spot. It is always best to add it either above the paragraph or just below the section header.
  • Note: Use sparingly. Do not add this template to every singe subsection. If you are in doubt, ask an administrator, we would be glad to help you.

As mentioned above, if you have any questions about disambiguation pages, main article linking, or any method of style on the wiki, feel free to message an administrator at any time!
