Alright I'm rather new so I'm still what the protocol is on Wiki forums but I'm the admin at the Doctor Who answers wiki. We're a Q&A wiki and it would be helpful since many questions are linked if I could link questions together. I spend most of my time right now funneling various spellings and phrasings to the same singular question. But what I would like to do in an attempt to keep my answers orderly (conversation can lead to bleeding the topic into other questions) is something like "See also". I've done a few manually as you can see here

but I'm curious is there anything I can do to help automate this process. Is there a "See also" plugin or maybe a template or something to simplify it?

Do know how to use redirects? You could pick the most sensible question and redirect all the similar ones to that question. That's what I do on WoW Answers wiki. Basically the Rephrase button just moves the question page to the new name and makes a redirect for the old name.
There isn't an automated what to make See also sections, but you can make a simple template to generate one and just have links to the questions that are related. I could help make the template, if you need help. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 11 Nov 2011 5:19 PM Pacific
Thanks I did figure out how to use redirects and that's been amazing in the whole clean up process. I would be interested in learning how to create a See Also template. Even if I have to populate it myself I think a little bit of style and uniformity would be really helpful.

You could make a template like this, possibly named Template:SeeAlso:
Placing this on a page {{SeeAlso|Name of page one|Name of page 2|Name of page 3|Name of page 4}}
Would create...
