This template either adds the page to both Category:Wikipedia supplemental essays and Category:Wikipedia essays, or to Category:User essays, depending upon which namespace it is.


Use this template carefully, only when there is a well-established consensus at the relevant policy or guideline page to link to an essay in question. The noun supplement does not mean "an interpretation" nor "something added". It means precisely "something added, especially to make up for a deficiency", in this case a deficiency in an official Wikipedia's policy or guideline. If consensus changes and the essay is no longer referenced in a policy or guideline, change the tag to a standard {{Essay|interprets=}}.

This template has a single |pages= parameter. If multiple pages are specified, |plural=yes can be specified to refer to them as "those pages" rather than "that page". The template also has optional |shortcut=, |shortcut2=, and |shortcut3= parameters that can be used to add a Shortcut: box to the right-side, with up to three shortcuts.

  • {{supplement}}
  • {{supplement|pages=[[Wikipedia:Neutral point of view]] policy}}
  • {{supplement|shortcut=WP:SHORTCUT|shortcut2=WP:SHORTCUT2}}
  • {{supplement|pages=[[Wikipedia:Neutral point of view]] and [[Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons]] policies|plural=yes}}
