The portal link doesn't belong in this template. Portal links are placed in the "See also" section, while navigational templates are at the bottom of the page. This means that articles like Tea party movement either have multiple portals split up, with this one being on its lonesome at the bottom of the page, or have the portal link unnecessarily repeated. For articles that only require a single portal link, if it's at the bottom of this template alone it's going to be very hard to find for the average reader.--~TPW 15:48, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
Is that a policy? If so, which one? – Lionel(talk) 08:39, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
I found it in WP:ALSO. I don't know that it's policy that helpful links always be found in the same place, but it is more helpful.--~TPW 10:40, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
See also sections are optional. For those articles without a See also, the portal link on the template is necessary, as this would be the only method to display the link. – Lionel(talk) 21:29, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
