Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

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 Help:URL#URLs on other Wikimedia projects for more information.

Caution

When you link to a Wikipedia or other Wikimedia project URL, omit the preceding "http:", or "https:", so that the URL begins with "//". This allows users to use the protocol they're currently using.

You can use {{fullurl}} magicword to generate URLs to Wikipedia pages.

Examples

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

Note that if your url or link title contains an equals sign = you must use named parameters:

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

To be more concise, you can use {{scp}} or {{plnk}} and numbers as parameter names e.g.

  • {{scp|1=//en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Equals_sign&oldid=282228764|2="="}} gives the same "="
  • {{plnk|1=//en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Equals_sign&oldid=282228764|2="="}} gives the same "="
