Template documentation


{{subpages}} shows all the subpages of a given page. It should not be used in the main namespace, only on pages such as user pages, Wiktionary pages and appendices. It takes one, optional parameter, the target page name. The default is {{PAGENAME}}

  • {{subpages}}: shows the subpages for the current page (in this case, Template:subpages)
  • {{subpages|User:Example}}: shows the subpages for User:Example


You can also embed the Special:PrefixIndex directly, e.g.


If you want use in your wiki a sorted lists of subpages, or get counts of it for using in templates, you may try extension Extension:SubPageList. Example using of this, see wiki code of template Template:pages. It's alternative solution without tag <pages> for pages of books from the Extension:ProofreadPage. This template generate i.e. content of page The Birch-Bark Roll 1906 (kniha). It is solution without dependency on the Lua modules.
