Link to a user, either internal or interwiki

  • For users without a user page you may link to their talk page with {{Ut}}.
  • For links to users of the German Wikipedia choose the effective {{Ud}}.


{{U |1= |2= |3= }}

Many users own in the Commons just a User Talk page, but no User page.

The template {{Uc}} checks whether the user page exists, and links to it if yes.
Otherwise it checks whether the user talk page exists, and links to it if yes.
Otherwise it links to the special page "user contributions".
If later the other pages are created, it prefers automatically the talk page or user page.
Since existence checks are not possible in other Wikipedias, these checks are performed only when no language code is specified.
