Purpose[edit]

Many 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[edit]

This is the TemplateData documentation for this template used by VisualEditor and other tools.

Talkback

A template for notifying users that they have messages waiting on other pages

Template parameters

ParameterDescriptionTypeStatus
User name1

The username of the recipient.

Stringrequired
Section2

The linked page or page section

Stringoptional
Time stampts

To apply the current time, value should be ' ~~~~~ ' (five tildes).

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

To have the links point to a non-user talk page, you must include the full talk page link.

{{Talkback|Talk:page name|section}}
{{Talkback|Wikisource talk:page name|section}}

To include a timestamp, add ts=~~~~~ (five tildes).

{{Talkback|Talk:page name|section|ts=~~~~~}}
{{Talkback|your username|section|ts=~~~~~}}

Place the code on the talk page of the user you have answered to. 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. The section parameter is optional; when you enter the name of the section on your talk page, it will directly link to that section.

Notes[edit]

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


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:


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:
Comment 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.'''}}
