Template:Split dab

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

This template is used to recommend that a disambiguation page ("dab") be split into two or more such pages. {{Split dab}} is a customized call to {{Split}}, and uses the same syntax (as of October 2015).


Apply to the top of the disambiguation page in question.

  • Minimum syntax: {{Split dab}}
  • Preferred syntax: {{Split dab|Page 1|Page 2}} (include the present dab page as the first parameter if it would still exist after the split).

Use of the template places the article into Category:Disambiguation pages in need of being split, which is a child of Category:Disambiguation pages in need of cleanup. The meta-template this template calls also categorizes in Category:Articles to be split and its dated subcategory.



This template originates from discussions between Wikipedia:WikiProject Disambiguation and Wikipedia:WikiProject Anthroponymy regarding whether and when to split one-name content (lists of people sharing surname or given name) from disambiguation pages or not. See for instance Category talk:Disambiguation pages in need of being split.
