Template parameters

This template prefers inline formatting of parameters.

ParameterDescriptionTypeStatus
Useruser

A user name on the target wiki, without any namespace (targets the default user's talk page on that wiki). This parameter must be removed if you want to use the alternate page parameter (you must set only one of these two parameters). Don't URL-encode its value and dont insert any wiki tag or HTML tag, but be careful about its exact letter case.

Example
Username
Stringsuggested
Pagepage

An alternate full page name on the target wiki (with its leading namespace and colon, or slash and subpage name if needed). Use it instead of the user parameter if you don't target the default talk page of a user but a subpage, or another community page; this parameter is not used if you set the user parameter (you must set only one of these two parameters). Don't URL-encode its value and dont insert any wiki tag or HTML tag, but be careful about its exact letter case.

Example
Project:Pagename/newsfeed
Pageoptional
Sitesite

The fully qualified domain name of the target wiki site. This can only contain letters (letter case is ignored), possibly digits and hyphens, and dots separators between domain labels. Its value is checked against known domain names to render a distinctive icon for the main wiki project. If the domain name is not set is unknown, a warning will be displayed without a leading icon.

Example
en.wikipedia.org
