This documentation is transcluded from Template:Talkback/doc.

Some users state that when they get a message, they will respond on your talk page instead of on their own. This makes reading back a conversation quite cumbersome; having to switch talk pages back and forth in order to make sense of the conversation. To this end, you can use this template to notify a user that you have responded to his/her message on your own talk page.

Usage

{{Talkback |1= }}

{{Talkback|your username}}
{{Talkback|your username|section}}

To have the links point to a non-user talk page, add tp=1. When doing so, you must use all parameters and include the full talk page link.

{{Talkback|Talk:page name|section|tp=1}}

To have the links point to a page which is not a talk page on this wiki, such as a Village Pump page, or the talk page on a different sister wiki, add other=1 and put everything in as the first parameter. If you'd like to put the anchor in as a second parameter, you may (don't put it in twice).

{{Talkback|Commons:Village_pump|Discussion title|other=1}} would link to Commons:Village pump#Discussion title
{{Talkback|:en:page name|other=1}} would link to the appropriate page on the English Wikipedia, for example

The recipient may remove this template from his/her talk page at any time. A link to edit the first section of the talk page is shown within the template.

Notes

  • If you are going to use this template, please consider putting the {{Usertalkback}} notice on your own talk page:


  • If I left you a message: please answer on your talk page, then place {{Talkback|your username}} on my talk.
  • If you leave me a message: I will answer on my talk page, then place {{Talkback|Talkback}} on your talk.
  • Please click here to leave me a new message.

English | Magyar | +/−

You can do so by copying the following code at the very top of your talk page:

{{Usertalkback}}
  • Other versions are possible, such as an asymmetrical one not requiring your interlocutors to use Talkback, provided that you watch their talk page for answers:


  • If I left you a message: please answer on your talk page, I am watching it.
  • If you leave me a message: I will answer on my talk page, then place {{Talkback|Talkback}} on your talk.
  • Please click here to leave me a new message.

English | Magyar | +/−

You can do so by copying the following code at the very top of your talk page:

{{Usertalkback|you=watched}}
  • Another way, now less standard, was to use such notice:
Notice If you leave me a message, I will respond here and will let you know on your talk page using the {{Talkback}} template.

You can do so by copying the following code:

{{Notice|'''If you leave me a message, I will respond ''here'' and will let you
know on your talk page using the {{tl|Talkback}} template.'''}}
