{{Subst only}} produces the following notice:

(but {{Subst only}} itself should not be substituted.)


{{Subst only}}

{{Subst only}} should be placed on the documentation subpage of any template that requires substitution rather than transclusion (i.e. not on the template's own page itself).

Pages that include {{Subst only}} are added to Category:Wikipedia substituted templates.



If set as "yes", the notice is amended to state that the template to which it refers is subst:ed automatically. Default is "no".


Use to set an alternate and transcludable name for the template.
