[view] [edit] Documentation

This pages combines documentation for {{merge}}, {{mergeto}}, {{mergefrom}}, and most other templates listed in the see also section.

{{Mergeto}} will add tagged articles to Category:Articles to be merged. If the date= parameter is provided (can be done by substituting Template:DATE, automatically giving the correct format and permanency needed) - or left out for a WP:BOT to put in, articles are added to a subcategory of Category:Merge by month.

Usage and examples

  1. {{Merge | Article 1 | Talk:Article 1#Merge proposal |date=April 2020 }}
  2. {{Merge | Article 2 | Talk:Article 1#Merge proposal |date=April 2020 }}
{{mergefrom}} and {{mergeto}}
  1. {{Mergefrom | Article 2 | Talk:Article 1#Merge proposal |date=April 2020 }}
  2. {{Mergeto | Article 1 | Talk:Article 1#Merge proposal |date=April 2020 }}
Example usage of {{merge}}
  1. {{Merge|Daemon (mythology) | Talk:Demon#Terminology |date=April 2020 }}
  2. {{Merge|Demon | Talk:Demon#Terminology |date=April 2020 }}


  • 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.
  • If you propose a merge, please begin a section on the talk page with your rationale for the merge (otherwise a discussion may not even begin).
  • Do not use square brackets to link articles; it is automatically done. The Talk link is always shown as pipetricked to (discuss).
  • 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!
  • Do not use a full URL for either link; use the link syntax you would place in square brackets.
  • The date= parameter must be lowercase, not Date=.
    • The date= value must be the proper full name of the month followed by a space and the four digits of the year.
    • However using the substituted Template:Tl2 ensures the category links will be formatted properly, and is compatible with date coded tagging on most maintenance templates. Typing {{subst:DATE}} will quickly become second nature.
    • If you leave the date parameter off, a WP:BOT will generally add it in a day or two.
  • Any additional pipe delimited field can be added to add your username and to embedded comments, such as a synopsis of your rationale locally viewable in edit mode.
  • 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!
