Other hatnote templates

The following templates are considered part of the Hatnote template family, used typically at the top of a page, but can be used as needed.

  • {{about}}: To differentiate this page from other similar topics or the disambiguation page of the same base page name.
  • {{details}}: A derivative of {{for}} that forces the opening sentence to be displayed as "For more details..."
  • {{for}}: Enables any description to be given for the reason to want to link to up to four other pages.
  • {{further}}: Mainly for linking to more detailed articles and pages typically places before the shortened description, but could be placed after if necessary.
  • {{hatnote}}: This is the core of the other templates. It simply places text on the page in italics with a paragraph indent.
  • {{See also}} (not yet copied from Wikipedia): It can be created manually with {{hatnote}}.
