This is a documentation subpage for Template:Hatnote.
It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.


Using {{Hatnote|text}} formats text into the standard stylistic for a Wikipedia type hatnote. That produces a short note placed at the top of an article to provide disambiguation of closely related terms or summarize a topic, explaining its boundaries.


This template is primarily used to add a correctly formatted hatnote to a page. Often, but not always, this is a disambiguation link at the top of article pages. It places an HTML div- / div block around the text entered as its only argument, which provides standardized formatting (contents are indented and italicized in most displays); it also isolates the contained code to make sure that it is interpreted correctly.

This template is also used as the "meta-template" for additional specialized disambiguation link templates; see Wikipedia:Otheruses templates (example usage) for a list.

The template does not automatically create links of any kind. Links and other desired formatting must be explicitly added, using normal Wiki markup.


The code used in this template includes: <div class="dablink"></div>


The only required parameter is the desired text to be displayed in the hatnote. It is passed as the first and only parameter in the template.
