Template:reply to

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


This template uses Module:ping user to create a link to a user page. This generates a user mention notification for that user (see the Notifications tab of your preferences). Notifications are generated for any link to a user page added in a page revision simultaneously with the signature (i.e. link to the user page) of the user who made the revision. This template is just a shorthand: using it is neither necessary nor sufficient to trigger notifications (see mw:Help:Echo#Technical details). The same thing can be accomplished by writing @[[User:Example|]]: (using the pipe trick).

If you feel that this template unnecessarily personalizes the discussion, you may still use the {{talkback}} template on the user's talk page to indicate that you have replied to a comment.

Multiple recipients

You can reply to as many people as you like at once:

{{reply to|User1|UserII|UserC}} Message text. ~~~~

Customise punctuation

By default, the template will insert a colon after the final name. To change this, specify the required character using the |p= parameter. For example:

  • {{reply to|Example|p=}} produces @Example
