Template:Diff3

[1]

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is intended to be useful for creating links to "diffs"; that is, links to pages that show the differences between two versions of a wiki page.

Every version of a page has a revision ID, which you can find from the history of the page by looking at the link for the timestamp, which is of the form:

http[s]://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=SomePageName&oldid=442212827

The number after oldid= is the revision ID.

Unlike {{Diff}}, this template does not require the page name, and provides a diff between a specified revision ID and the one immediately before it (i.e. what changed at a certain ID). Unlike {{Diff2}}, this template does not have a section name parameter.

UsageEdit

{{Diff3|oldid|label}}
  • oldid – The base ID onto which the diff is generated.
  • label – (optional) Text to display as link. No label will give a numbered link.

ExamplesEdit

Code Output
{{Diff3|123456789}} [2]
{{Diff3|123456789|SomeUser's edit to "Some article name"}} SomeUser's edit to "Some article name"
