Usage

Syntax (overview)

Single section

This template, {{section link}}, or its shortcut, {{slink}}, is used to generate a link to a certain section of a local wiki page and render an appropriate section mark (§).

Instead of:

[[Albert Einstein#Scientific career]]

Albert Einstein#Scientific career

...you can write:

{{section link|Albert Einstein|Scientific career}}

Albert Einstein § Scientific career

Multiple sections

This template may generate consecutive links to several sections of the same page:

{{section link|History of IBM|1880s–1924: The origin of IBM|1969: Antitrust, the Unbundling of software and services|1993–present: IBM's near disaster and rebirth}}

...will generate:

History of IBM §§ 1880s–1924: The origin of IBM, 1969: Antitrust, the Unbundling of software and services, and 1993–present: IBM's near disaster and rebirth

Suppressing page name

Sometimes the page name needs not to appear, e.g. to avoid redundancy and wordiness. For the page on which the template is used, not specifying a page name creates a section link only. The following:

{{Section link||Suppressing page name}}

...is the equivalent of:

[[#Suppressing page name|§ Suppressing page name]]

...and renders as:

§ Suppressing page name

For other pages, |nopage=y can be used to suppress the page name.
