Guideline:Magic Words


The code {{Header|Page name= {{PAGENAME}}}} will return:

Guideline:Magic Words

To be used in all pages without a prefix such as Single:, Album:, Video:, Book: Film: etc. (song pages for example).


The Code {{BASEPAGENAME}} will return:

Guideline:Magic Words

IF the namespaces Single: and Album would have been declared as namespaces in feb 2009, that query would return the Page Name with Single: and Album: and could be used along with the "header" template.
