Temporary fix

The code used in the template above uses the {{NAMESPACE}} "magic word".

Following (not used in the template) is the code based on Wikipedia's mergeto template - it's not working here, presumably as parser functions are not working yet.

Following (not used in the template) is the code based on Wikipedia's mergefrom template - it's not working here, presumably as [functions] are not working yet.

This template was adapted from Wikipedia:Template:Mergefrom, and still needs work (or the redlinks need work).

This template documentation was adapted from Wikipedia, and still needs work (or the redlinks need work).

This template documentation is transcluded from Template:Merge/doc [edit]

This is a Template doc page pattern combined usage page
for Template:Template list and this /doc combined usage page will also be included within the usage of most of the merge templates listed below in the #See also section.

This template will add tagged articles to Category:Articles to be merged. If the date= parameter is provided (this occurs easiest by substituting Template:DATE, automatically giving the correct format and permanency needed), articles are added to a subcategory of Category:Merge by month.

Usage and Examples

  1. {{Merge |Article 1 |Talk:Article 1#Merge proposal |date=Month Year|User:Example}}
  2. {{Merge |Article 2 |Talk:Article 1#Merge proposal |date=Month Year |User:Example}}
  3. {{Merge |Article 1 |Talk:Article 2#Merge proposal |{{subst:DATE}} |User:Example}}
{{merge from}} and {{merge to}}
  1. {{Merge from |Article 2 |Talk:Article 1#Merge proposal |date=Month Year |User:Example}}
  2. {{Merge to |Article 1 |Talk:Article 1#Merge proposal |{{subst:DATE}} |User:Example}}
Example usage of {{merge}}
  1. {{Merge|Daemon (mythology) |Talk:Demon#Terminology|date=March 2007 |User:Example}}
  2. {{Merge|Demon |Talk:Demon#Terminology |{{subst:DATE}}|User:Example}}
  1. Please use the second parameters to direct to the same Talk page. Otherwise, two separate discussions could take place in each of the articles' Talk pages.Template:2
  2. Generally, the problem is no discussion is started, so please begin the section with your rationale.Template:2
  3. Do not use square brackets to link articles; it is automatically done. The Talk link is always shown as pipetricked to (discuss).Template:2
  4. Make sure you link Article 2 in Article 1 and vice versa, not Article 1 in Article 1 or Article 2 in Article 2. If the link appears bold black, reverse them before you save!Template:2
  5. Do not use a full URL for either link; use the link syntax you would place in square brackets.Template:2
  6. The date= parameter must be lowercase, not Date=.
    1. The date= value must be the proper full name of the month followed by a space and the four digits of the year.
    2. However using the substituted {{DATE}} ensures the category links will be formated properly, and is compatible with date coded tagging on most maintenance templates. Typing {{subst:DATE}} will quickly become second nature.Template:2
  7. Your username is optional documentation. It does nothing in the template and is merely there for anyone to quickly find out who added the tag.Template:2
  8. Any additional pipe delimited field can be added to similarly add embedded comments, such as a synopsis of your rationale locally viewable in edit mode.Template:2
  9. If there is consensus after one or two weeks that the articles should be merged (or no response at all), proceed with the merger. Otherwise, your proposal should be pulled. It is less controversial if you undo your own tagging. You have implicit responsibility to watch your proposal and follow any discussion that develops!
