Wikipedia:Related

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Related terms are terms which are related or parallel to the current one. Wikipedia required precise and clear handling of related terms by use of linking, through disambiguation, or by in-context descriptions within the article lede or subsequent text.

Template[edit]

See also: this
that

The template {{related}} can be used to produce a small box on the right.

  • {{related|this|that}}

Use for temporary links to terms which can be considered parallel or closely related. Like a temporary linkbox (see infobox).

Usage[edit]

An editing tool, or simply a helper device, these can be quickly used to indicate where integration or cross referencing is necessary. If the article lede already does a good job of disambiguating the term from related terms or otherwise integrating these, then the template should be removed. In other cases where the articles are relatable, the template can be considered substantive and useful enough to stay.
