Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)[view] [edit] [history] [refresh]


Template:Ns has subpages detects whether the current or the given namespace has subpages enabled. Returns “yes” if it does, and an empty string otherwise.

This template can be substituted.


  • {{ns has subpages}} → yes
  • {{ns has subpages|Template}} → yes
  • {{ns has subpages|Category}}
  • {{ns has subpages|}} (main space)
  • {{ns has subpages|{{ns:0}}}} (main space)
  • {{ns has subpages|:}} (main space)
  • {{ns has subpages|{{ns:Talk}}}} → yes

The template recognizes namespaces which “should” have subpages, but currently do not (see bug 18437); that is, pages in Category talk:, Help: and Help talk: namespaces. Full page names can be passed, with the obvious caveat that passing the article [[Template]] or [[Category]] is … inadvisable …

  • {{ns has subpages|Category talk}} → yes
  • {{ns has subpages|File:Foo}}
  • {{ns has subpages|Foo}}
  • {{ns has subpages|:Template}} → yes
