This template normally creates a link to a page, but omits the link brackets if it is the page itself. Such a self link would otherwise cause bold text.

This template can be used in another template which links to a page where it is transcluded. This template is not recommended in navigation templates where many readers will expect to see the bold text caused by self links.

Usage[edit]

  • First parameter is the page name.
  • Second parameter is optional to specify different link text.

Examples[edit]

  • {{No selflink|Wikipedia:Five pillars}} will produce Wikipedia:Five pillars on any page except on Wikipedia:Five pillars itself where it would produce the unlinked and unbolded text "Wikipedia:Five pillars". (The code [[Wikipedia:Five pillars]] would have produced the bold Wikipedia:Five pillars on that page).
  • {{No selflink|Wikipedia:Five pillars|The five pillars}} will produce a piped link displaying The five pillars on any page except on Wikipedia:Five pillars itself where it would produce the unlinked and unbolded text "The five pillars". (The code [[Wikipedia:Five pillars|The five pillars]] would have produced the bold The five pillars on that page).
