Hello. You have new messages at Example's talk page.
Template documentation

The {{Whisperback}} template is a less distracting and intrusive alternative to {{Talkback}} and related templates. The usage examples below are pretty self-explanatory (look at where the links go, too), except that you'll need to replace "Example" with your real username.

Examples

Parameter examples

  • Link to the Example topic section on ExampleUser's talk page:
    {{Whisperback|<ExampleUser>|<Example topic>}}
    Nuvola apps edu languages
    Hello. You have new messages at ExampleUser's talk page.


  • The bare minimum form, which simply links to ExampleUser's talk page; deprecated because it make the user hunt for your message:
    {{Whisperback|<ExampleUser>}}
    Nuvola apps edu languages
    Hello. You have new messages at ExampleUser's talk page.


  • Link to a non-user-talk page (with or without a section link; shown with one, which is preferred):
    {{Whisperback|<Cyber Nations Wiki:Requests for Adminship>|<Example topic>}}
    Nuvola apps edu languages
    Hello. You have new messages at Cyber Nations Wiki:Requests for Adminship.


  • Customize the text shown for the link using the linkname parameter:
    {{Whisperback|<ExampleUser|linkname=my talk>}}
    Nuvola apps edu languages
    Hello. You have new messages at my talk.


  • Customize the text shown for what is waiting (which defaults to "new messages") using the things parameter:
    {{Whisperback|<Cyber Nations Wiki:Requests for Adminship|things=additional questions>|<linkname=your RfA>}}
    Nuvola apps edu languages
    Hello. You have additional questions at your RfA.


  • Specify who you are addressing using the greet parameter:
    Linking in this parameter is discouraged, as the point of this template is to be simple and only link to one thing, the discussion you're notifying someone about.
    {{Whisperback|<Cyber Nations Wiki:Requests for Adminship>|<Requests for Adminship|greet=admins>}}:
    Nuvola apps edu languages
    Hello, admins. You have new messages at Cyber Nations Wiki:Requests for Adminship.


  • Say what the message (vs. the topic section) is about with the about parameter:
    Linking in this parameter is discouraged, as the point of this template is to be simple and only link to one thing, the discussion you're notifying someone about.
    {{Whisperback|<ExampleUser>|<Example topic|about=Example need>}}
    Nuvola apps edu languages
    Hello. You have new messages about the revised proposal at ExampleUser's talk page.


  • Add a timestamp at the end using the ts parameter:
    {{Whisperback|<ExampleUser|ts=~~~~~>}} (5 tildes; deprecated and only for {{Talkback}} compatibility – normally you'd just sign after it like any other post, and not use this.)
