When a Wikipedia article is large, it is often rewritten in summary style. This template is used below the heading of the summary, to link to the sub-article that has been (or will be) summarised. This template can also be used in the Category namespace, but the preferred template for categories is {{Cat main}}.

This template is not to be used as a substitute for inline links or as a "see also". Its usage should be restricted to the purpose described above.

Usage

{{Main
|Article 1
}}

You may also include additional links, up to ten in total:

{{Main
|Article 1
|Article 2
|Article 3
|Article 4
|Article 5
|Article 6
|Article 7
|Article 8
|Article 9
|Article 10
}}

For each link, you may optionally specify a link appearance (this is for articles where a piped link would be used). Note that the extra parameters use a lower case 'L', eg. l1 not 11:

{{Main
|Article 1
|Article 2
|Article 3
|Article 4
|Article 5
|Article 6
|Article 7
|Article 8
|Article 9
|Article 10
|l1=Article 1 link appearance
|l2=Article 2 link appearance
|l3=Article 3 link appearance
|l4=Article 4 link appearance
|l5=Article 5 link appearance
|l6=Article 6 link appearance
|l7=Article 7 link appearance
|l8=Article 8 link appearance
|l9=Article 9 link appearance
|l10=Article 10 link appearance
}}
