History

The default value for the 3rd parameter is {{PAGENAME}} because disambiguation pages used to be in the format {{PAGENAME}} (Disambiguation) with this being the old value. This format is now obsolete, as disambiguation pages are simply just the name while the different use pages have paranthesis with info denoting the disambiguation. This 3rd parameter should be changed every time.
