Archive copy at the Wayback Machine

{{Wayback}} is intended to simplify the linking process to files at the Internet Archive "Wayback Machine".

Additionally, {{Cite web}} provides an archiveurl

Parameters

{{Wayback|url=}}

{{Wayback|url=|title=|date=}}

url
The URL of the link that is being referenced in the Internet Archives; not the link to the archive.org page, the template will automatically generate the full archive link using the URL of the referenced page.
title (optional)
The text label for the external link. If this is omitted, a generic 'Archive copy' label will be used.
date (optional, but recommended)
The Internet Archive timestamp (YYYYMMDDhhmmss) for the date of the archived page that is to be displayed. If provided, the Template will format the date and display it: Month-name, day-number, year. If omitted, the history of the referenced page will be listed instead. You must use the full 4 digits for the year, and 2 digits for month, day, hour minute and second. Use leading zeros if necessary, and use a 24 hour clock for the time.
df (optional)
When a date is specified, set this to "yes" to output dates day-first (e.g. 28 September 2014 rather than September 28, 2014).
