Get the root page name of a page. It is similar to the magic word {{BASEPAGENAME}}, but returns the root of the page hierarchy instead of the parent.


  • {{ROOTPAGENAME|Template:1x/sandbox}} → 1x
  • {{ROOTPAGENAME|Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Arbitration enforcement/Archive1}} → Administrators' noticeboard

In namespaces with subpages disabled, it will return the full page name:

  • {{ROOTPAGENAME|List of 28 Days/Weeks Later characters}} → List of 28 Days

Note that this template can be substituted.
