These templates are used for splitting articles.

For use on main page[edit]

Content split

When two or more topics are being dealt with on the same page which share the same or similar title and a disambiguation page seems appropriate use {{Split}}:

  • Place the template at the top of the page for which the split is proposed.
  • By default, the discussion is directed to the talk page of the page on which this tag is placed. Optionally, "|discuss=" can be added to direct the discussion to another page. Example:{{split|discuss=Talk:Foobar#Split proposal}}, produces:
  • Optionally, you can include suggested titles for between 2 and 20 new pages as parameters. Example:{{split|New title 1|New title 2}}, produces:


When a disambiguation page needs splitting use {{Split dab}}:

Size split

When an article is too long, and it is uncertain how the article is to be split use {{Split-apart}}:

  • When there is a suggested new article name use {{Split-apart}} with "|New article name":

For sections, use:

For use on talk page[edit]

  • {{Copied}} (for both source & destination) - {{Copied|from=|from_oldid=|to=|to_diff=|to_oldid=}}
  • {{Split to}} - {{Split to|page= |diff= |date= }}
  • {{Split from}} - {{Split from|page= |diff= |date= }}
