Usage

This template is useful for user signatures to circumvent SUBST.

Use this template in Special:Preferences in the Signature field:

{{SUBST:Nosubst|User:Example/Signature}}

Detailed Help

If you'd like a signature that is dynamically updated, i.e., one that displays every signature you've ever left on the wiki as your current signature, here's how:

  1. Create a subpage for your signature. You can use mine as an example: User:sp/sig
    NOTE: Please don't attempt to overwrite it: Copy the raw code to your own subpage.
  2. Go to your "My preferences" page (near the top right of your screen), and in the "Signature" entry box add {{SUBST:nosubst|User:YourUsername/sig}}, inserting your own usernname, of course.
  3. Tick the "Treat signature as wikitext (without an automatic link)" checkbox just below it, and you're done!
  4. Use the 4-tildes or signature button to use your saved signature in talk page messages.
