Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is meant to be subst:ed on the talk pages of users whose attention you would like to draw to a discussion. Please read Wikipedia:Canvassing before using this template. The location parameter is for the page at which the discussion is taking place. For the convenience of the recipient, be sure to link directly to the section header. The heading parameter should be a concise, neutral description of the heading under discussion. The more parameter is an option chance to add a little more discussion to the invitation. This template will automatically add your signature.

Do not include your signature, "~~~~", because that's already included in the code of the template.

Parameters[edit]

    • |section= (OPTIONAL): optional section header for the location of the discussion
      • |piped= (OPTIONAL): (yes|no) if set to yes, this will pipe the link used to match the |section=

Examples[edit]

Detailed example[edit]

For example, you wanted to discuss the deletion and redirecting of the article Pussycat to the article Cat. A discussion could take place at Talk:Pussycat#Let's delete Pussycat!; you could then place the wikitext {{subst:Please see | Talk:Pussycat#Let's delete Pussycat!}} in the Talk:Cat page. When the edit was saved, it would substitute it with the text:

==Discussion at Talk:Pussycat#Let's delete Pussycat!==
[[File:Farm-Fresh eye.png|15px|link=|alt=]] You are invited to join the discussion at [[Talk:Pussycat#Let's delete Pussycat!]]. Thanks. [[User:Example|Example]] ([[User talk:Example|talk]]) HH:MM, DD MONTH YEAR (UTC){{z48}}<!--Template:Please see-->

{{subst:Please see | Talk:United States#Name }}

Becomes:

== Talk:United States#Name ==
You are invited to join the discussion at [[Talk:United States#Name]]. /Your signature/

Example 2[edit]

{{subst:Please see | Talk:United States#Name | Check this out}}

or

{{subst:Please see | Talk:United States#Name | heading=Check this out}}

or

{{subst:Please see | location= Talk:United States#Name | heading= Check this out}}

Becomes:

== Check this out ==
You are invited to join the discussion at [[Talk:United States#Name]]. /Your signature/

Example 3[edit]

{{subst:Please see | Talk:United States#Name | more=When was the country really settled? }}

Becomes:

== Talk:United States#Name ==
You are invited to join the discussion at [[Talk:United States#Name]]. ''When was the country really settled?'' /Your signature/
