{{About}} is a commonly used hatnote template on Wikipedia, and should be placed at the top of an article (but following {{Short description}}, if present), linking the reader to other articles with similar titles or concepts that they may have been seeking instead. The template has several formats, including:

  • {{About}}
  • {{About|Use1}}
  • {{About||Use2|Article2}}
  • {{About|Use1||Article2}}
  • {{About|Use1||Article2|and|Article3}}
  • {{About|Use1|Use2|Article2}}
  • {{About|Use1|Use2|Article2|and|Article3}}
  • {{About|Use1|Use2|Article2|and|Article3|and|Article4|and|Article5}}
  • {{About|Use1|Use2|Article2|Use3|Article3}}
  • {{About|Use1|Use2|Article2|other uses}}

Alternately, a section=yes parameter can be added to the {{About}} template for use at the top of a section. When using this parameter, the wording in the template changes to specify that it is being used in a section:

A |text= option adds text to the end; this should only be used when truly necessary, when the other hatnote templates listed below don't suffice. This template supports |selfref= (see {{self reference}} and MOS:SELFREF for details).

For more options, find "{{About}}" in the text below.

For reference, see Wikipedia:hatnote and documentation below. Template:Hatnote templates
