Disambiguation in Wikipedia refers to the elimination of ambiguity caused by "a word with multiple meanings". This situation can be achieved by creating a disambiguation page. E.g: "University" is not only a system of ① educational institutions, but also a ② ancient Chinese classics; "Doctor" is not only a ① ancient Chinese official name, but also a ② erudite and talented person, ③ a master, and a ④ degree name. In this case, it is necessary to disambiguate. Please note that disambiguation should not be confused with merging duplicate entries: duplicate entries refer to entries with different titles but the same subject, such as "Potato" and "Potato" or "Elevator" and "Elevator". Disambiguation pages are classified in Category: Disambiguation category. When writing a disambiguation page, be careful not to add disambiguation if there is no possibility of confusion. See some writing principles and Wikipedia:Top note descriptions.

Quickly build

If you want to quickly create a disambiguation page, you can refer to the following code.

Code

Disambiguation method

We can use several methods to resolve this ambiguity: Same page disambiguation Equal disambiguation Theme disambiguation Use {{about}} template, do not create disambiguation page Use {{distinguish}} template without creating a disambiguation page Introduce paragraphs in the same entry without creating a disambiguation page In addition, create a disambiguation page for a detailed introduction to disambiguation templates, please see Category: Disambiguation Templates.

Same page disambiguation

If those projects are very short, there are even only one or two paragraphs. We can put them on the same page, separated by horizontal lines. But when each part starts to get bigger, we need to put each definition on a separate page.

"Equality" disambiguation

All the different definitions are placed on individual pages with different names, and the common name becomes a "disambiguation page"-a list of links to individual definition pages, and a simple explanation of the differences between the definitions, such as Washington .

Subject item disambiguation

Use About template, do not create disambiguation page

You can use {{About}} when you need to express "This article introduces...about other meanings...". enter {{About|Topic Description|Description of other items①|Other items①|Description of other items②|Other items②}} Will display:

Use Distinguish template, do not create disambiguation page

Prompt for items that are often confused with the subject, enter {{Distinguish|Other entries}} Will display:

Use Other uses list template, do not create disambiguation page

When there are at least two entries with the same name other than the subject or entries that often have the same title as the subject, enter {{Other uses list|Topic description|Description of other items①|Other items①|Description of other items②|Other items②}} Will display:

Introduce paragraphs in the same entry, do not create a disambiguation page

If the content is related to the topic and may not be an independent entry, please add a suitable chapter name to the main entry and introduce the content. For example, the maze#电子游戏域、天界#The heaven of Taoism. Do not use this method when there are separate entries.

Create another disambiguation page

If one of the various definitions is obviously more common, we will keep that name and add links to other definitions at the top of the page, or links to [[XXX (disambiguation)]] (if there are many Other definitions), such as smallpox. Or each definition can have its own specific name, listed on the [[XXX (disambiguation)]] page, and then put the main article.
