Usage

{{Split section |Title to which to split |discuss={{TALKPAGENAME}}#Split proposed |date=August 2016}}

The first parameter represents the title for the proposed new page, and |discuss= provides a link to the discussion thread on the talk page of the article proposed to be split (it can be named explicitly or you can use the {{TALKPAGENAME}} "magic word"; |discuss=Talk:{{PAGENAME}}#Split proposed would also work). The example above produces:

Of course, the page "Title" already exists, but your actual page title will most likely be either a dead link or a redirect.

If more than one target article needs to be named, use the more robust template {{Split portions}}:

  • {{Split portions |portion=this section |First title to which to split |Second title to which to split |discuss={{TALKPAGENAME}}#Split proposed |date=August 2016}} (supports up to 20 titles).

This template will add tagged articles to Category:All articles to be split, the proper dated subcategory of Category:Article sections to be split, and the proper dated subcategory of Category:Articles to be split.
