When copying material from one Wikipedia article to another, you can put this template on the talk page of the second article (the article the material is copied to), to indicate that part of the attribution history for the article's contents lies elsewhere, since its page history contains the GFDL attribution to Wikipedian contributors of the material.

Notes also need to be put in edit summaries of both articles; see Wikipedia:Splitting#Procedure.

Usage:

{{Split to
|page = name of page material was copied from
|diff = url of diff of copying the material
|date = date and time material was copied
}}

The page= and date= fields are required.

The diff= field is optional, but using it makes it easier for readers and editors to trace the split. Where the page was created with the split material as the first edit, the diff parameter cannot be accessed in the normal radio button, comparison mode in the page history. Instead, navigate to the permanent link for the first edit, and change the URL of that page to replace "oldid" with "diff". For example where the end of the URL is oldid=271444811, the diff url is identical except for changing that ending code to diff=271444811.
