{{{page}}}

Usage

{{w|page=|text=|lang=}}

This template allows the creation of an interwiki-style link to Wikipedia, but does not display the "arrow" icon normally associated with a link. It can be used in infoboxes where the arrow icon is not necessarily desired.

As these parameters are "named", they do not have to be listed in a particular order.

page

This parameter is mandatory and must be the existing Wikipedia article to be linked to. The article name must be entered with the _ (underscore) characters as shown in the article's URL, e.g Lego_Digital_Designer.

text

This parameter is optional and can be used to show text other than the name of the Wikipedia article.
If not specified, this parameter defaults to the supplied |page= parameter.

lang

This parameter is optional and is used for linking to non-English Wikipedia articles. The lang field is set as shown in the site address, e.g. use nl for the Dutch-language site: nl.wikipedia.org.
If not specified, this parameter defaults to |lang=en.

Examples

{{w|page=MLCAD}}

The above will create a link to the Wikipedia article on MLCAD.

{{w|page=MLCAD|text=Mike's LEGO CAD}}

The above will create a link to the Wikipedia article on MLCAD, displaying the text "Mike's LEGO CAD".

{{w|page=MLCAD|lang=nl}}

The above will create a link to the Dutch-language Wikipedia article on MLCAD.

{{w|page=MLCAD|text=Mike's LEGO CAD|lang=nl}}

The above will create a link to the Dutch-language Wikipedia article on MLCAD, displaying the text "Mike's LEGO CAD".
