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


Use of this template makes it easy to find external links that might be convertible to internal ones if the interwiki map is updated.
