[edit] Template-info.svg Template documentation
This is the template documentation page for {{User other}}.
It is not intended to be viewed directly. If it uses variables, some links may appear broken. Do not replace these variables with hardcoded page names or URLs.

This is the {{user other}} meta-template.

This template helps other templates detect if they are on a "User:" page or some "other" type of page.

Usage[edit source | hide]

This template usually takes two parameters, like this:

{{user other | User page text | Other pages text }}

If the template is on a "User:" page, it will return this:

User page text

If the template is on any other page, it will return this:

Other pages text

A typical usage case could be to make it so that a template only adds a category when on user pages. Thus not adding other pages that just show the template. Like this:

{{user other | [[Category:Some user category]] }}

Or to warn that a template should not be used on other pages:

{{user other | | This template should only be used on user pages. }}

Note that in the first case above the "other" parameter was not used, and in the second example the "user" parameter was left empty.

Demospace[edit source | hide]

For testing and demonstration purposes this template can take a parameter named demospace.

  • If it has the value user it returns the user page text.
  • It if has the value other or any other value such as the name of some other namespace it returns the other pages text.
  • If the parameter is empty or undefined, the actual page type determines the result.

Like this:

{{user other 
| User page text 
| Other pages text 
| demospace = user

No matter on what kind of page the code above is used it will return this:

User page text

You can make it so your template also understands the demospace parameter. That means you can demonstrate the different appearances of your template in the documentation for your template. Then do like this:

{{user other 
| User page text 
| Other pages text 
| demospace = {{{demospace|}}}

Technical details[edit source | hide]

This template detects "User talk:" pages as type other.

This template works like {{main talk other}}, for more examples and technical details see full documentation there.
