Standard messages are simply notices that can be appended onto a page by inserting special code snippets in the markup.

How to insert a standard message

You can insert a standard message into a page by including a code snippet of this general format in the page's markup:

{{msg:pagename}}

Or - if you want to copy the text from the MediaWiki message into the page, without it being linked to its content (so acting just like copy and paste), use:

{{subst:pagename}}

N.B - The appropriate code snippet format to be used for each message, is shown in the table below.

{{msg:disambig}} This is a disambiguation page - it contains links to different pages which are referenced here under the same page name. If you've followed a link and have arrived on this page, you might want to go back and modify the link to point to the most appropriate article which is listed on this page.
{{msg:stub}} This article is a stub and needs to be finished. Plunge forward and help it grow!
