You can make an exact copy of an article's content in another article as follows:

  1. Edit the article into which you want to copy another article's content . (See also: Help:Adding an article or Help:Editing wiki articles.)
  2. In the article, type {{subst::nameOfArticleToCopy}}
  3. Save the page. This fills in the text from nameOfArticleToCopy.
  4. Edit the page again and customize.

Note: To copy the content of any article in the Template namespace, use only a single colon. For example, for Template:nameOfTemplateToCopy, use:

 {{subst:nameOfTemplateToCopy}}
