# Template:Selfref

Template documentation

## Usage

{{Selfref}} is a template that is used to mark pieces of text and links that wouldn't make sense on mirrors of Wikipedia: see Wikipedia:Avoid self-references.

In most cases, {{Selfref}} is used to create a disambiguation link to a page in the Wikipedia: namespace from article space; for instance, Objectivity (disambiguation) could have a selfref link '{{Selfref|For Wikipedia's policy on avoiding bias, see [[Wikipedia:Neutral point of view]].}}'. When using {{Selfref}} in this way, use the following format:

{{Selfref|the self-referential notice to display, including links}}


When using {{Selfref}} in this way, the text will be indented slightly and put in italics.

{{Selfref}} can also be used for any other text which shouldn't appear in mirrors (the mirrors can remove it by blanking {{Selfref}} in their copy, although not all of them do), without reformatting; to use it like this, place an extra vertical bar at the end of the template inclusion, like this:

{{Selfref|the self-referential text to display without reformatting|}}


or adding the word "inline" after a bar, like this:

{{Selfref|the self-referential text to display without reformatting|inline}}


This template should not be substituted.
