The template links to the article on the first level administrative division as listed at Table of administrative country subdivisions by country if such an article exists, if it does not exist it links to a general article on that country's subdivisions, such as Administrative divisions of Foo. If this does not exist, it links to the administrative division section of the main country article --Astrokey44 12:31, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Naming convention should stay the same[edit]

This template name should stay the same as the other templates that are fashioned for the various levels of administrative divisions (first, second, third, and fourth). There are a lot of links depending on this template (and others) - so please do not change the name. Also, changing the name to something like "countries by country" is somewhat redundant and doesn't make a lot of logical sense. Rarelibra (talk) 20:10, 6 May 2008 (UTC)


Just a note the the countries of the United Kingdom are "constituent parts" and "countries", but "should not be considered as first-order administrative divisions".[1] I've swapped the link from that article to subdivisions of the United Kingdom which is a different article which actually covers the administrative divisions of the country. --Jza84 |  Talk  15:32, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
