From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for a mission, an outpost, an explorable area, an explorable area during the War in Kryta, an explorable area during Winds of Change, a primary quest, a Zaishen mission quest, a Zaishen vanquish quest, a landmark, and other stuff.

Usage[edit]

Add the template to the top of location articles:

{{Location disambiguation 2}}

For most articles, autodetection will automatically list all related locations. If not, see the below for examples to manually add, repoint, or ignore articles as needed.

Parameter list[edit]

All parameters are optional and shall only be used to override autodetection, if required.

  • first unnamed parameter : The name of the location without any disambiguation suffix (e.g. Arborstone, not Arborstone (explorable area)). Usually taken from the article's name.

Article overrides (set to none to remove the article)

  • mission = name of the article about the mission
  • outpost = name of the article about the outpost
  • explorable = name of the article about the explorable area
  • explorablewik = name of the article about the explorable area during War in Kryta
  • explorablewoc = name of the article about the explorable area during Winds of Change
  • quest = name of the primary quest (mostly for Eye of the North primary quests vs. zaishen missions)
  • zquest = name of the Zaishen Mission quest
  • zvanquish = name of the Zaishen Vanquish quest
  • landmark = name of the Landmark
  • other = name of a freely configurable article
  • otherdesc = description of the article given by other=. (if one of these two is given, the other is required as well)
  • disambigdesc = the description of an article that shall be disambiguated more verbosely, mostly used for nightfall. Wikify as needed. See examples.
  • disambigarticle = first article fitting the parameter above
  • disambigarticle2 = second article fitting the parameter above

Examples[edit]

Adding articles that aren't autodetected[edit]

Manually specify the landmark, needed here because it does not follow the naming convention of The Great Northern Wall (landmark)
{{Location disambiguation 2 | The Great Northern Wall | landmark=Great Northern Wall}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for an outpost, a Zaishen mission quest, and a landmark.
Articles that don't fit existing categories, add both other= and otherdesc= to add one more article with a custom description
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Eye of the North | other=Guild Wars Eye of the North | otherdesc=an Expansion}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for an outpost and an Expansion.
{{Location disambiguation 2 | The Falls | other=The Falls (NPC) | otherdesc=a creature}} →

Removing articles that are erroneously detected[edit]

Haiju Lagoon (mission) is not about a regular mission, but would be detected as such.
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Haiju Lagoon}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for a mission, an explorable area during Winds of Change, a Zaishen vanquish quest, and a landmark.
Remove the mission by giving mission=none
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Haiju Lagoon | mission=none}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for an explorable area during Winds of Change, a Zaishen vanquish quest, and a landmark.
Better yet, we'll specify the mission as belonging to another category, using other=. This also removes it from autodetection.
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Haiju Lagoon | other=Haiju Lagoon (mission) | otherdesc=the mission during Dragon Festival}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for an explorable area during Winds of Change, a Zaishen vanquish quest, a landmark, and the mission during Dragon Festival.
While Riverside Province (explorable area) is an explorable, it belongs to War in Kryta.
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Riverside Province)}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for an outpost, an explorable area, and a Zaishen mission quest.
Some additional code could fix that, if desired.
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Riverside Province | explorable=none | explorablewik=Riverside Province (explorable area)}} →

Disambiguating Nightfall missions and explorables[edit]

In Nightfall, missions and explorables have different names, i.e. Blacktide Den -> Lahtenda Bog, or Consulate Docks/Pogahn Passage -> Gandara, the Moon Fortress. Use the disambig* parameters here.

on Blacktide Den:
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Blacktide Den | disambigdesc=the [[explorable area]] | disambigarticle=Lahtenda Bog}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for an outpost and a Zaishen mission quest. For the explorable area, see Lahtenda Bog.
on Lahtenda Bog:
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Lahtenda Bog | disambigdesc=the [[mission]] | disambigarticle=Blacktide Den}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for a Zaishen vanquish quest. For the mission, see Blacktide Den.
on Gandara, the Moon Fortress:
{{Location disambiguation 2 | Gandara, the Moon Fortress | disambigdesc=the [[mission]]s | disambigarticle=Consulate Docks | disambigarticle2=Pogahn Passage}} →
Disambig icon.png This article is about a Template. This name is also used for a Zaishen vanquish quest. For the missions, see Consulate Docks and Pogahn Passage.

Punctuation in title[edit]

In a tiny number of cases, the template's parser might have trouble with correctly identifying articles with titles using punctuation. This can be resolved in one of two ways:

(1) On the page itself, use the {{PAGENAME}} magic word, e.g.

{{Location disambiguation 2|explorable=none|explorablewik={{PAGENAME}}}}

(2) On other pages, substitute the html/ascii code version of the punctuation. For example, use ' instead of an apostrophe:

{{Location disambiguation 2|D'Alessio Seaboard|explorable=none|explorablewik=D'Alessio Seaboard (explorable area)}}
(this only needs to be done for the first parameter)
