Description

Creates a banner noting that the page or section should be merged and automatically categorizes the page into Category:Pages to be merged.

Parameters

This template has no mandatory parameters, it is however good practice to always provide the "destination" and "reason" parameter.

"destination" parameter

You should always provide the name of the page that the page or section should be merged with (e.g. {{Merge| destination = Template:Move}}). It doesn't matter if the page exists already.

"destination2" parameter

You can also provide the name of a second page that the page or section should be merged with (e.g. {{Merge| destination = Template:Move | destination2 = Template:Split}}). It doesn't matter if the page exists already.

"reason" parameter

You should always provide an explanation why you think the page should be merged and why with that particular destination - be it as obvious to you as it gets. This can be any text (e.g. {{Merge| destination = Template:Move | reason = Could be integrated into that page}}).

"section" parameter

Setting this parameter to any value (e.g. {{Merge| section = 1}}) will change the message from "article" to "section".

"nocat" parameter

Setting this parameter to true (e.g. {{Merge| nocat = true}}) suppresses adding the page to Category:Pages to be merged.

Include this parameter when using the template for testing purposes, like on this page.

Examples

The template can be used with no arguments:

{{Merge}}

producing:

As you can see, however, the template complains if you don't provide a destination and a reason. You should therefore always provide them:

{{Merge| destination = Template:Move | reason = Could be integrated into that page}}

producing:

You can also provide a second destination:

{{Merge| destination = Template:Move | destination2 = Template:Split | reason = Could be integrated into that page}}

producing:

A specific section can be designated for merging:

{{Merge| destination = Template:Move | reason = Could be integrated into that page | section = 1}}

producing:
