Template:Undo/doc

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This template is intended to be useful for creating links to "undo" diffs. Note: not all revisions can be undone. Use this template with care.

Every version of a page has a revision ID, which you can find from the history of the page by looking at the link for the timestamp, which is of the form:

http[s]://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=SomePageName&oldid=442212827

The number after oldid= is the revision ID.

Given a page name and two revision IDs, you can construct links undo diffs.

Usage[edit]

{{Undo|page|oldid|diff|label}}
  • page – The title of the page.
  • oldid · undoafter – The base ID onto which the diff is generated.
  • diff · undo – The ID or keyword that is used against the base ID.
  • label – Text to display as link. No label will give an "undo" link.

Examples[edit]

  • {{Undo|Wikipedia:Pagediff|204934693|204901573}}
    • undo
      • The page= parameter (parameter number 1) should be a name of a page, for instance Wikipedia:Pagediff.
      • The oldid= parameter (parameter number 2) should be the smaller revision number.
      • The diff= parameter (parameter number 3) should be the larger revision number.
  • {{Undo|Wikipedia:Pagediff|204934693|204901573|revert an edit}}
    • revert an edit
      • The page= parameter (parameter number 1) should be a name of a page, for instance Wikipedia:Pagediff.
      • The oldid= parameter (parameter number 2) should be the smaller revision number.
      • The diff= parameter (parameter number 3) should be the larger revision number.
      • The label= parameter (parameter number 4) should be an alternate display for the link than just "undo"
