Intended for use on talk pages, this template identifies that another page was previously merged into the current article.

Usage

{{merged-from | article | date | talk}}
article
Name of article which was merged; must not be wikilinked.
date
Date which the article was merged (if known).
talk
If the talk page is located in a different namespace (e.g. Wikipedia talk)

Example:

  • {{merged-from|foo|date=30 September 2014}} -- displays message that the current article was merged from foo

Examples

  • {{merged-from|foo}} -- displays message that foo was merged into the current article

The talk page link can be removed with the parameter |talk=no. Example:

  • {{merged-from|foo|talk=no}}

The talk page is in another namespace. Example:

  • {{merged-from|Wikipedia:foo|foo}}

Additionally, if the merge has been carried out as a result of an AfD, an optional |afd= parameter can be used to link to the discussion:

  • {{merged-from|article|date|afd=}}
