Template:Split section

Template documentation [view] [edit] [history] [purge]

Usage

{{Split section|Title to which to split |discuss={{TALKPAGENAME}}#Split proposed |date=October 2020}}

The first parameter represents the title for the proposed new page, and |discuss= provides a link to the discussion thread on the talk page of the article proposed to be split (it can be named explicitly or you can use the {{TALKPAGENAME}} "magic word"; |discuss=Talk:{{PAGENAME}}#Split proposed would also work). The example above produces:

Of course, the page "Title" already exists, but your actual page title will most likely be either a red link or a redirect.

If more than one target article needs to be named, use the more robust template {{Split portions}}:

  • {{Split portions|portion=this section |First title to which to split |Second title to which to split |discuss={{TALKPAGENAME}}#Split proposed |date=October 2020}} (supports up to 20 titles).

This template will add tagged articles to Category:All articles to be split, the proper dated subcategory of Category:Article sections to be split, and the proper dated subcategory of Category:Articles to be split.
