[edit] [purge] Documentation

This template is for linking to the main article on a subject (duh). If an article contains a section about a subject in brief, and RationalWiki happens to have an entire article already devoted to that subject, then this template would be used to direct others to the proper article on the subject. Its utility differs from casually linking to another article in within the text and from a "See also" section in that it highlights a specific and highly relevant article.

This template has six parameters.

The first (and required) parameter is simply the name of the article you're linking to. For example, {{main|9/11 conspiracy theories}} produces
See the main article on this topic: 9/11 conspiracy theories
There is a second, optional parameter which allows you to change the text of the link. For example, {{main|9/11 conspiracy theories|What crazy people believe}} produces
See the main article on this topic: What crazy people believe

The third parameter adds a second article, the fourth changes the text of that link; the fifth parameter adds a third article, the sixth changes the text of that link. Or:

{{main|1=one|3=two|5=three}}
