Subject:SUBJECTNAME

Template documentation[edit] [history] [purge]

This template generates the name of the subject page associated with the current page. Compare {{BOOKNAME}}.

Usage

Simply place {{SUBJECTNAME}} on a page to get the output.

Optionally specify a page as a parameter to see the output for a different page than the current one.

{{SUBJECTNAME|<full pagename>}}

Deduction assumes the page is associated with a subject; this maximizes convenience of valid use, while disregarding behavior on invalid use.

Examples

page where called result note
Subject:Biology Subject:Biology
Biology Subject:Biology likely the Subject: prefix was simply omitted
Wikijunior:Subject:Biology Subject:Biology the Subject: prefix in the pagename overrides all other considerations
Wikijunior:Biology Subject:Wikijunior:Biology parallel to content-space behavior of {{BOOKNAME}}
Template:Biology Subject:Biology ignore namespace prefix of non-content namespace
Category:Subject:Biology/all books Subject:Biology the Subject: prefix in the pagename overrides all other considerations
Category:Biology/all books Subject:Biology ignore namespace prefix of non-content namespace

Internals

This template itself only contains the logic to sort out the namespace and base-name; deducing from those data the associated subject-category name is then delegated to {{SUBJECTNAME/core}}.
