Usage[edit]

{{Distinguish}} is used to create hatnotes to warn about possible confusion with a small number of other, related, titles at the top of article sections according to Wikipedia:Layout.

It is not for use in the "See also" section at the bottom of an article.

{{Distinguish|Article 1|...|Article 4|label 1=label1|...|label 4=label4}}
  • One to four articles can be listed.
  • The word "or" is always placed between the final two entries when displayed.
  • If more than 4 entries are supplied, a message will be displayed pointing out the problem.
  • You can use parameters label 1 to label 4 to specify alternative labels for the links.
Adding newline characters will break article links.

Examples[edit]

  • {{Distinguish|article1|article2|label 1=label1|label 2=label2}}
