Template:no entry

From Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to search


This template is intended to create placeholders for terms which, while possibly valid, do not meet CFI. This includes things such as people's names, common list words or dictionary-only words, and fictional words. Its appearance is designed to resemble Mediawiki:Noarticletext, except in namespaced pages where a generic text is used. This template can even be used when a string does not merit an entry in one language (but is e.g. a common dictionary-only word in that language), but does merit an entry in another language; abnodate illustrates how such entries can be formatted.


|1= (required)
The language code of the nonexistent entry. See Wiktionary:List of languages.
|2= (optional)
The entire link, including brackets and any piping. For example, [[w:Newton|Newton]] or [[Appendix:Phobias|triphobia]].
|3= (optional)
Override the name of the associated Citations: page.
|because= (optional)
May be set to unattested, fictional, onlydict, or rfd to choose a more specific message explaining why there is no entry.

The helper templates Template:in wikipedia, Template:in wikiquote, Template:in appendix and Template:in glossary exist and can be used with this template.
