Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is meant to simplify the merge/split procedures by providing one template that can be used on the talk pages of source and destination articles or other pages. Intended for use on talk pages, this template identifies that text has been copied or moved from one page to another, recording attribution dependencies as described by Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia.

Usage[change source]

{{Copied |from= |from_oldid= |to= |diff= }}
|from       = 
|from_oldid = 
|to         = 
|to_diff    = 
|to_oldid   = 
|date       =
|small      =

Parameters[change source]

  • from is the name of the source page, where the text originally appeared.
  • from_oldid is the ID of the page revision of the source page from which the text was copied.
    From the permanent link url: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=PAGENAME&oldid=from_oldid
  • to is the destination page, where the text was placed.
  • diff is the diff or permanent link of the destination page edit when the text was placed (in the case of a newly created page: the permanent url of the first version of the destination page).
  • to_diff is the ID of the page revision of the destination page that includes the copied text. If the copy created the destination page, use to_diff=prev.
  • to_oldid is the ID of the page revision of the destination page before the text was copied.

  • small is passed on to the {{Tmbox}} that is used to generate the message box. If set to yes, makes it a smaller right floating message box.
