    Lua error in Module:TNT at line 159: Missing JsonConfig extension; Cannot load https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Data:I18n/Lua banner.tab.

    Usage

    This template yields a hatnote similar to {{Other uses}}, but allowing more flexible text with links to multiple articles or disambiguation pages. It accepts one or more parameters (zero is not allowed).

    With one parameter (rare)

    The first parameter sets the hatnote itself and should be plain text. Without any further parameter, it will link to a default disambiguation page for the article title, e.g. {{For|other entities}} yields on page Foo:

    For other entities, see Foo (disambiguation).

    This kind of usage with exactly one parameter is rare, as in most instances {{Other uses}} (and in this case, {{About}} with the same result) can be used more easily, and without any parameter. But it makes sense in some cases for disambiguation pages with the same type of other meanings, e.g. in Treaty of Lisbon:

    For earlier treaties known as Treaty of Lisbon, see Treaty of Lisbon (disambiguation).

    However, for many such cases specific new templates have been implemented, like {{Other people}}, {{Other places}} etc. - see hatnote template overview box below.

    With two parameters

    The second parameter is used to change the resultant link, e.g. {{For|the acronym|FOO}} yields (wherever it is set, now independent of the article title):

    With more parameters

    The third, fourth and fifth parameters are used to give one, two, or three additional resultant links:

    the last being produced by e.g. {{For|similar terms|Foobar|Bar|Baz|Quux}}.

    The |selfref=yes option marks the entire hatnote as a Wikipedia self-reference, causing it to be omitted when the page content is reused outside of Wikipedia (see {{self reference}} and MOS:SELFREF for more details).

    Tracking category

    Pages with errors reported by this template are added to Category:Hatnote templates using unusual parameters.
