    This template is used to detect the page type of a given page. It detects redirect pages automatically and is highly customisable. It can be used on its own or as a meta-template to create other page-type-detection templates.

    Syntax[edit source]

    Basic code
    {{pagetype}}
    
    Full code
    {{pagetype
    | page              = 
    | defaultns         = 
    | main              = 
    | user              = 
    | wikipedia         = 
    | project           = 
    | wp                = 
    | file              = 
    | image             = 
    | mediawiki         = 
    | template          = 
    | help              = 
    | category          = 
    | portal            = 
    | timedtext         = 
    | module            = 
    | special           = 
    | media             = 
    | talk              = 
    | redirect          = 
    | dab               = 
    | na                = 
    | other             = 
    | plural            = 
    }}
    

    Basic usage[edit source]

    For simple detection of the page type of the current page, use the default settings:

    {{pagetype}}
    

    That will produce the following results, depending on the page type or the namespace:

    Page type / namespace Output
    Redirects (in any namespace) redirect
    Main namespace article
    File namespace file
    Template namespace template
    Category namespace category
    Module namespace module
    Other namespaces page

    If the template is used on a talk page, it will detect the page type for the corresponding subject page.

    Example
    Code Result
    {{pagetype}} template

    Page parameter[edit source]

    You can use the page parameter to make the template act as though it was called from that page.

    {{pagetype|page=page name}}
    
    Examples
    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=UK}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Talk:United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=File:Example.svg}} file
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia:Namespace}} article
    {{pagetype|page=TimedText:Imagine.ogg.en.srt}} page

    Adding and removing namespaces[edit source]

    It is possible to specify different behaviour for each namespace than that described in the basic usage section. For example, you might want the template to display "user page" for pages in the user namespace, instead of the default "page". To do this, you can use the code |user=yes. This looks up the typical name used for pages in the user namespace, in this case "user page", and uses that text when the template is used with a page in the user namespace. To use this with other namespaces, use the namespace name in lower case as a parameter:

    {{pagetype
    | user              = yes
    | wikipedia         = yes
    | project           = yes
    | wp                = yes
    | mediawiki         = yes
    | help              = yes
    | portal            = yes
    | timedtext         = yes
    | special           = yes
    | media             = yes
    }}
    

    You can use any of the following to specify the namespace: "yes", "y", "true" or "1". They can be used in any combination of upper and lower case. (These values are defined by Module:Yesno.)

    The default text for these namespaces is as follows:

    Page type / namespace Output
    User namespace user page
    Wikipedia namespace project page
    MediaWiki namespace interface page
    Help namespace help page
    Portal namespace portal
    Timed Text namespace Timed Text page
    Special namespace special page
    Media namespace file

    You can use a similar process to remove any of the default namespace values as well. For example, if you use the code |template=no, then the template will display "page" when used on a template page, rather than the default "template".

    {{pagetype
    | main     = no
    | file     = no
    | template = no
    | category = no
    | module   = no
    }}
    

    The following values will all work to remove namespace values: "no", "n", "false" or "0". They can be used in any combination of upper and lower case.

    Examples
    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia:Namespace}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia:Namespace|wikipedia=yes}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Talk:United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Talk:United Kingdom|talk=y}} talk page
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|main=no}} page
    {{pagetype|page=TimedText:Imagine.ogg.en.srt}} page
    {{pagetype|page=TimedText:Imagine.ogg.en.srt|timedtext=Yes}} Timed Text page

    Default namespace sets[edit source]

    As well as adding and removing individual namespaces, it is possible to specify different sets of namespaces by using the |defaultns=. There are four different sets available: all, extended, none and the default set. These sets allow you to specify many namespaces at once, without having to use all of the individual namespace parameters. Namespaces are set according to the following table:

    Namespace Value of |defaultns= Output
    none extended all Other values

    Custom namespace values[edit source]

    It is possible to specify a custom value for any namespace:

    {{pagetype
    | main              = custom text
    | user              = custom text
    | wikipedia         = custom text
    | project           = custom text
    | wp                = custom text
    | file              = custom text
    | image             = custom text
    | mediawiki         = custom text
    | template          = custom text
    | help              = custom text
    | category          = custom text
    | portal            = custom text
    | timedtext         = custom text
    | module            = custom text
    | special           = custom text
    | media             = custom text
    }}
    
    Examples
    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia:Namespace}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia:Namespace|wikipedia=custom text}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Talk:United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Talk:United Kingdom|talk=custom text}} custom text
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|main=custom text}} custom text
    {{pagetype|page=TimedText:Imagine.ogg.en.srt}} page
    {{pagetype|page=TimedText:Imagine.ogg.en.srt|timedtext=custom text}} custom text

    Talk parameter[edit source]

    Normally, the template will treat talk pages as if they were in the corresponding subject namespace. However, if the talk parameter is set, the template will treat talk pages separately from subject pages. The talk parameter sets values for all talk pages, i.e. pages in the Talk: namespace, pages in the User talk: namespace, pages in the Wikipedia talk: namespace, and so on.

    {{pagetype|talk=yes}}
    
    {{pagetype|talk=custom text}}
    

    The default value for "talk=yes" is "talk page".

    Examples
    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia talk:Namespace}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia talk:Namespace|wikipedia=yes}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia talk:Namespace|talk=yes}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia talk:Namespace|wikipedia=yes|talk=yes}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia talk:Namespace|talk=custom text}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia talk:Namespace|wikipedia=yes|talk=custom text}} article

    Main namespace classes[edit source]

    For pages in the main namespace, it is possible to add a class value in the first positional parameter:

    {{pagetype|class}}
    

    If the class value matches one of the values in the table below, it will produce an alternative to the default output of article.

    Class Class values Output
    Disambiguation page disambiguation, disambig, disamb, dab page
    No applicable class na, n/a page

    You can input the class value in any combination of upper and lower case.

    Custom main namespace classes[edit source]

    It is also possible to specify a custom value for the main namespace classes:

    {{pagetype|class|dab=yes|na=yes}}
    
    {{pagetype|class|dab=custom text|na=custom text}}
    

    This works the same way that it does for the custom namespace page types. Possible parameters are:

    • dab: a custom value for disambiguation-class pages. If set to "yes", "y", "true" or "1", this produces "disambiguation page". If set to "no", "n", "false" or "0", no custom value is produced. If set to any other value it produces that text.
    • na: a custom value for NA-class pages. It works in the same way as the dab parameter. The default value for "yes" etc. is "page".
    Examples
    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|dab}} page
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|dab|dab=custom text}} custom text
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|na}} page
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|na|na=custom text}} custom text

    Redirects[edit source]

    By default, the template automatically detects redirects in all namespace. It is not possible to specify redirect behaviour by namespace, but you can turn redirect detection off, or use a custom value for redirect pages.

    {{pagetype|redirect=no}}
    
    {{pagetype|redirect=custom text}}
    
    Examples
    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=UK}} article
    {{pagetype|page=UK|redirect=no}} article
    {{pagetype|page=UK|redirect=custom text}} article

    Other namespaces[edit source]

    By default, the template produces "page" if used from a namespace that hasn't been specified. This value can be changed with the |other= parameter:

    {{pagetype|other=custom text}}
    
    Examples
    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia:Namespace}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia:Namespace|other=custom text}} article
    {{pagetype|page=Wikipedia:Namespace|other=custom text|wikipedia=wikipedia-space text}} article

    Plurals[edit source]

    By default the module returns the name of the namespace in the singular. Adding the parameter |plural=y returns the plural form.

    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|plural=y}} articles
    {{pagetype|page=Category:Books}} category
    {{pagetype|page=Category:Books|plural=y}} categories

    The rules for pluralisation can be customised in Module:Pagetype/config to allow localisation.

    Capitalisation[edit source]

    By default the module returns the page type in lowercase. Adding the parameter |caps=y returns a version with a capital letter at the start.

    Code Result
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom}} article
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|caps=y}} Article
    {{pagetype|page=United Kingdom|plural=y|caps=y}} Articles
