Documentation (view - edit)

This hatnote is similar to {{Distinguish}}, but allows multiple disambiguation targets or prepending "the".

It is generally used when there is an ambiguity that is not necessarily literal, but one that can be reasonably assumed to exist for a portion of the readership substantial enough to warrant a hatnote. When applying it, care should be taken to avoid trivial uses.

  • {{Distinguish2|foo}}
  • {{Distinguish2|the [[foo]]}}
  • {{Distinguish2|[[foo]] and [[bar]]}}
