Purpose[edit]

To link to articles in the Wikisource 9th edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica.

Usage[edit]

{{EB9 poster}}

or

{{EB9 poster|Article Name}}

or

{{EB9 poster|Article Name|Display Name}}

Examples[edit]

{{EB9 poster|Fillmore, Millard}}

This result is displayed in the top box to the right. If the last-name-first format looks too ugly, use:

{{EB9 poster|Fillmore, Millard|Millard Fillmore}}

This result is displayed in the bottom box to the right. If no article name is specified, the PAGENAME is used.

Usage tips[edit]

When you put this template on a Wikipedia article, please be kind to the regular Wikipedians who are working on those articles. This should be placed at the bottom of the article, usually the External links section. Sometimes it simply won't fit within the Wikipedia article at the bottom, so you may have to use some judgement: think about using the in-line version, {{Cite EB9}}. If the article is about a Wikisource author, it will usually be better to just put a link in the "Works about" section of the author page in Wikisource using Wikisource:Template:EB9 link.
