Template documentation


This template will allow you to create a local or interwiki link (such as a link to the history of a page) on a page without having the External.svg follow the link. This can be used, for example, when internal or interwiki links appear as external links. See w:Help:URL § URLs on other Wikimedia projects for more information.

Examples[edit]

  • {{Plain link |url=//www.wikipedia.org}} gives [1]
  • {{Plain link |//www.wikipedia.org Wikipedia}} gives Wikipedia
  • {{Plain link |http://www.wikipedia.org | Wikipedia}} gives Wikipedia

Notes[edit]

Do not leave a space before the start of the URL, it confuses the [ URL ] parser.

If you leave the "scheme" (http: or https:) off the start of the URL parameter, the hyperlink will use the current page's protocol.

If your url or link title contains an equals sign = you must use named parameters or {{=}}:

  • {{Plainlink|url=http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Equals_sign&oldid=282228764|name="="}} gives "="
  • {{Plainlink|http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title{{=}}Equals_sign&oldid{{=}}282228764|"{{=}}"}} gives "="
