Proper usage



which produces

Whoops! Maybe you were looking for Handbook?

Multiple links

This template supports anywhere from one to five entries. To add more, just do it like this:

{{User:Jerichowasahoax/Whoops|Handbook|Handbook:Main Page|Handbook:AMD64|Handbook:X86|Main Page}}

This produces:

Whoops! Maybe you were looking for Handbook, or Handbook:Main Page? How about Handbook:AMD64, or Handbook:X86? Possibly even Main Page?

Alternate text

You may also use the alt1, alt2, alt3, alt4, and alt5 parameter(s) to provide alternate text for your link(s). Example:

{{User:Jerichowasahoax/Whoops|Handbook|alt1=a manual}}

Which gives you:

Whoops! Maybe you were looking for a manual?

The number corresponds to the index of the unnamed parameter you used for the link, i.e. the first link address corresponds with alt1.

Improper usage

Once upon a time it was only possible to use one entry per usage of the template, so pages tended to get spammed with several instances of {{Whoops}}. If you see a page with multiple instances of this template, please eliminate unfunny ones and condense them into single templates. If you have to have more than five links, you're probably[1] doing it wrong.

  1. Definitely!
