Usage

This template is basically the same as Wikipedia's otheruses template and provides a way to automatically give a link to the disambiguation page for articles that follow the "most famous" rule. Thus at the top of the Paris article it will show up as "For other places with the same name, see Paris (disambiguation)." -- Ryan 12:25, 3 June 2006 (EDT)

There are two ways to use this template:

  • For the majority of cases, simply include it at the top of the article using {{otheruses}}.
  • In cases where the disambiguation page is not named "Name (disambiguation)" an optional parameter can be included. For example, the Orléans article is disambiguated on Orleans (disambiguation) (with no "é"). In that case the template is included as {{otheruses|Orleans}}.

Purpose

This template is basically the same as Wikipedia's otheruses template and provides a way to automatically give a link to the disambiguation page for articles that follow the "most famous" rule. Thus at the top of the Paris article it will show up as "For other places with the same name, see Paris (disambiguation)." -- Ryan 05:17, 23 March 2006 (EST)

Note that Template:Samename has been used for this in some places, but at the moment that template does nothing other than print any message that was passed to it. It's late and I'm tired and I kind of plunged forward without requesting feedback before creating this template (my bad), but if Template:Otheruses is preferable then I think Template:Samename can safely be deleted, or vice versa. -- Ryan 05:36, 23 March 2006 (EST)
Template:Samename is now unused and has been vfd'd. -- Ryan 20:29, 24 March 2006 (EST)
