Transclusion is a general MediaWiki term for including things into a page using double-brace "{{}}" markup. This includes templates, pages in other namespaces, magic words, output of parser functions, some Special pages, interwiki pages, and more.

Target page syntax[edit]

Basic use[edit]

To transclude a page, include both the namespace and the page name (separated with a colon) within the double-brace:


When transcluding a template, you may omit the namespace and colon:


When transcluding an article in the Main namespace, you may omit the namespace:


When transcluding a subpage of the target page, you may use the subpage name by itself:



Transcluded templates and Special pages may accept parameters:

{{note|inline|This is a note.}}

Source page syntax[edit]

Three tags (noinclude, includeonly, and onlyinclude) control which content appears in the target page.

Content within the <noinclude></noinclude> tags is excluded from transclusion on the target page. This content still appears on the source page.
Content within the <includeonly></includeonly> tags is transcluded on the target page, but does not appear on the source page.
Content within the <onlyinclude></onlyinclude> tags is transcluded on the target page, and also appears on the source page.
