Usage[edit source]

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

In most cases, {{Selfref}} is used to create a disambiguation link to a page in the Wikiversity: namespace from article space; for instance, Objectivity could have a selfref link '{{Selfref|For Wikiversity's policy on avoiding bias, see [[Wikiversity: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.
