This template is added to new pages that do not yet exist to prevent a user from getting the create page link when they select it. The current person editing the page may not have have the information yet or is unable to add it at this time.

If preliminary information is being saved in preparation for creating the page content, consider placing the data on the talk page and put a link to it from the page below this template.


Place {{NeedPage}} at the top of a new page to produce the default message box.

Alternately, the following optional variables can be used in place of the generic message:

| contact     = URL of forum or user
| contacttype = forum or user
| open        = no
| talk        = yes



Optional URL parameter for forum or private message. Requires |contacttype= to alter message appropriate for forum or individual user.


Required if |contact= parameter is supplied. Optional message with URL linking to location where other editors should send messages on this page. Used with |open= parameter to control the message in the box. The |contacttype= parameter is completing this sentence If you have questions, please... When |contacttype=forum it displays: post a message in this forum. When |contacttype=user it displays: send a private message to this user.


Optional indicator if other input is desired. Only with the presence of the |contact= parameter can you use |open=no to display: This page has already been identified as being needed. Content for this page is being prepared by one or more users. Do not make any changes before you with the rest of the message coming from the |contacttype= parameter result. The default or empty |open parameter will display: This page has already been identified as being needed. This page is open to changes from anyone during construction. Further, if the |contact= parameter is also set you will see: If you have questions, please with the rest of the message coming from the |contacttype= parameter result. Requires the |contact= parameter must be set to direct people with a URL.


If the talk page is currently being or will be used for initial thoughts on the page, use |talk=yes to display: Please use the talk page for thoughts and ideas on setting up this content.
