Ùsaid - Usage[deasaich]

This template is appropriate for use in hatnotes and See also sections, or to reference sections within the same article. When using in article body text, consider whether an overt link to a specific section in another article may be confusing to readers who cannot follow links, such as those viewing a printed version of the material, or a version republished without links (see WP:LINKSTYLE).

Syntax (overview)[deasaich]

  • {{Section link|Article|Section}} or {{Section link|Article#Section}}, link to section of other article. → Example: Albert Einstein § Scientific career
  • {{Section link|Article|Section|nopage=y}}, link to section of other article, only displaying the section's title → Example: § Scientific career
  • {{Section link||Section}}, for usage within the same article, supply an empty first parameter → Example: § Scientific career

Single section[deasaich]

This template, {{Section link}}, or its shortcut, {{Slink}}, is used to generate a link to a certain section of a local wiki page and render an appropriate section mark (§).

Instead of:

{{enUici|Albert Einstein#Scientific career}}

Albert Einstein#Scientific career

...you can write:

Multiple sections[deasaich]

This template may generate consecutive links to several sections of the same page. You can write:

en:w:History of IBM §§ 1880s–1924: The origin of IBM​ and 1969: Antitrust, the Unbundling of software and services

...or:

en:w:History of IBM §§ 1880s–1924: The origin of IBM, 1969: Antitrust, the Unbundling of software and services, and 1993–present: IBM's near disaster and rebirth

Suppressing page name[deasaich]

Sometimes the page name needs not to appear, e.g. to avoid redundancy and wordiness. For the page on which the template is used, not specifying a page name creates a Section link only. The following:

{{Section link||Suppressing page name}}

...is the equivalent of:

For other pages, |nopage=y can be used to suppress the page name. This can be used when the page name is clear from context, such as on talk pages referring to the article being discussed.

This common case can be entered using {{Section link|{Help:Magic_words#Variables}|Section|nopage=y}}. The template {{Article link}}, alias {{alink}}, exists for this purpose.

  • {{Section link|:en:w:WP:Manual of Style|Quotations|Quotation marks}} → 
en:w:WP:Manual of Style §§ Quotations​ and Quotation marks

Styling page name[deasaich]

For some page names (e.g., titles of films or short stories) we're always supposed to present the core part of the page's name (without any parenthetic disambiguation) in italics, quotation marks, or some other markup (per MOS:TITLES). The |display= parameter can be used for this purpose:

  • {{Section link|:en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film)|General controversy|display=''The Last Temptation of Christ'' (film)}}Mearachd Lua: Display title "The Last Temptation of Christ (film)" was ignored since it is not equivalent to the page's actual title.
  • {{Section link|:en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film)#General controversy|display=:en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film)}} → 
en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film) §§ General controversy​ and display=:en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film)
  • {{Section link|:en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film)#General controversy|display=:en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film)}} → 
en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film) §§ General controversy​ and display=:en:w:The Last Temptation of Christ (film)


Underscores[deasaich]

It is common practice to copy article and section name from the browser's address bar. When doing that, the article and section names may contain underscores:

Albert_Einstein#Scientific_career

This template automatically replaces the underscores with space characters:

{{Section link|Albert_Einstein#Scientific_career}}Albert Einstein § Scientific career

There are articles that have underscores (see Roinn-seòrsa:Articles with underscores in the title). To retain the underscores in the rendered output, use |keep-underscores=yes:

article and section copied from browser address bar:
Dual_EC_DRBG#Timeline_of_Dual_EC_DRBG
manual removal of extraneous underscores:
Dual_EC_DRBG#Timeline of Dual_EC_DRBG
{{Section link|Dual_EC_DRBG#Timeline of Dual_EC_DRBG|keep-underscores=yes}}Dual_EC_DRBG § Timeline of Dual_EC_DRBG
{{Section link|:en:w:Dual_EC_DRBG#Timeline of Dual_EC_DRBG|keep-underscores=yes}}:en:w:Dual_EC_DRBG § Timeline of Dual_EC_DRBG
