Template:Merge

Template documentation

Usage

Tagging a single page is simple:

{{Merge|Article 1|date=October 2021}}

By default, the Discuss link on the template links to the top of the destination page's talk page. To specify which section, or to name a different talk page entirely, use the |discuss= parameter:

{{Merge|Article 1|discuss=Talk:Article 1#Merge discussion|date=October 2021}}


To name other pages to be merged, simply separate them with a vertical pipe. You can add up to 20 articles to be merged:

{{Merge|Article 1|Article 2|Article 3|discuss=Talk:Article 1#Merge discussion|date=October 2021}}


To name multiple pages to merge into a single page, use the |target= parameter. For example, to merge the tagged page, as well as OtherPage1, OtherPage2, and OtherPage3 into OtherPage4, use:

{{Merge|Article 1|Article 2|Article 3|target=Article 4|discuss=Talk:Article 1#Merge discussion |date=October 2021}}

These templates will add tagged pages to Category:Pages to be merged .

Notes

  • After adding the merge template, please create a section on the talkpage explaining your rationale for the merge proposal.
  • Do not link to the pages with square brackets.
For example, write {{Merge|Article 1}}, not {{Merge|[[Article 1]]}}.
  • The date may not be shown in the box. Do not be concerned about this. It is used when grouping tagged pages together into categories by date.
