[Edit] [Octicons-sync.svgpurge] Template-info.svg Template documentation


{{OSM user}} or {{OsmUser}} inserts a link to a user's page on OpenStreetMap.org (i.e. //www.openstreetmap.org/user/username).

Just specify the same name you enter to login on OSM for your edits, without encoding it (use plain spaces, and non-Latin letters directly).


  • you can specify a second parameter for an alternate name to display.
  • you can specify m=1 or f=1 to render a male or female icon, instead of the default neutral icon (no gender assumption is made by this template, because OSM users don't necessarily have a matching account name on this wiki, where users can register their preference).


You type You get
