This page describes the steps necessary to embed a page within another page. See also: Help:Template.

Syntax[edit]

{{Namespace:Pagename}}

If you do not provide a namespace, the Template namespace will be used. For the pages in the main namespace, add a colon before the page name.

Example[edit]

{{:Sample Page}} produces the following, which displays the contents of Sample Page inside the box:

This page is a sample page, used as an example in Help:Embed page.


The box was created, (as with any wikitext transcluded or not) by indenting {{:Sample Page}} here, by one space on a new line. Here is the same transclusion, with the newline, but without the indention: This page is a sample page, used as an example in Help:Embed page.


You can verify these things by looking directly at the Sample Page and by editing this section.
