How to get a list of a page's subpages

Many pages in the Wikipedia, Portal, and User namespaces, have subpages. WikiProjects and user pages for instance often have subpages, and Portals always do.

To get a list of all the subpages for a particular page, click on Special pages in the toolbox menu on the left side of your screen. Then scroll down to the "Lists of pages" section and click on All pages with prefix. Then select the namespace the page is in (from the pulldown menu), and enter the pagename in the inbox that has the caption Display pages with prefix:, and click on Go.

If the page's name you entered was "pagename", then all the subpages would start with "pagename/".

Try it now: Special:PrefixIndex
