Documentation

Makes an external link look like an internal one.

Usage
{{plainlink|"Full URL of link"|"desired text to be displayed"}}
For example
{{plainlink|http://ldraw.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page|LDraw wiki main page}} and
{{plainlink|1=http://brickwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Image:StopSignTrim.png&action=history|2=StopSignTrim.png file history}}
produces
LDraw wiki main page and
StopSignTrim.png file history
rather than the LDraw wiki main page and StopSignTrim.png file history external forms with the external link marker.
Notes
  • The full URL needs to use underscore connectors, not spaces. The displayed text can contain spaces though
  • If the URL contains a question mark or =, use 1= and 2= on the parameters as in the second example
