Usage

Integral part of the {{R}}, {{Rpl}} and {{Def only}} template function.

R template function

This template is an integral part of the {{R}} template function. It produces a standard warning message instead of a definition for a fully disambiguated term. Even if a definition only page exists for the term it will be ignored by the R template.

HOWEVER, for a partially disambiguated term the Term/Definition page will be used as usual.

  • Fully disambiguated: a term that is a redirect to a disambiguation page and has no metadata (even if a definition exists for the term it will be ignored by the R template).
  • Partially disambiguated: a term that exists as an article (with or without a definition) and a disambiguation pages also exist.

Function semi-independent of the R template

This occurs when this template is placed on a /Definition subpage:

For terms that are fully disambiguated it will produce the standard message to direct readers to the disambiguation page (only seen if a reader views the page directly, usually these definition pages should be deleted).
If a disambiguation page is required but it has not been created this template will produces a message on the definition page that indicates the intent to create a disambiguation page. This message will also be used by the R template to advertise the need for a new disambiguation page on Related Articles pages that link to the term.
