This is the documentation page for Module:UserLinks

This module generates links about a given user. It is used to generate templates such as {{user}}, {{user5}}, and {{admin}}, usually through its wrapper template {{user-multi}}.



The main function implements the {{user-multi}} template. It generates a list of links about a given user. Please see the template page for documentation.


The single function generates a single link about a given user. See {{user-multi/link}} for documentation.

Link table[edit]

The linktable function generates a wikitext table containing the possible link codes that can be used with the main and single functions, along with example output for each code. It is used on the documentation pages at Template:User-multi/doc and Template:User-multi/link/doc.

It is displayed with the following code:


Porting to other wikis[edit]

If you want to use this module on another wiki, there are a few modules that you must also copy across, and some that can be used but are not essential.

Required modules:

Optional modules:

  • Module:UserLinks/extra - used for testing new link functions before they are moved to the main module.
  • Module:Category handler - if an error occurs, and this module is present, pages are not categorised if they match the module's blacklist.

After you have copied over the necessary modules, you should adjust the configuration settings in Module:UserLinks/config for your language and for your wiki's setup.
