A plain link to link to another article within DNB. Compared with {{DNB link}} which provides an annotated link including publication detail. The default is to point to an article from one of the original 63 volumes, designated (DNB00).

Usage[edit]

DNB articles have the nomenclature Surname, Firstname, so the basis of the link is

{{DNB lkpl|Surname, Firstname}}
eg. {{DNB lkpl|Newton, Isaac}} produces Newton, Isaac that links to Newton, Isaac (DNB00)

Noting however, that some references in the volumes may give the name in a standard text context, eg. Isaac Newton, to represent this a second parameter should be used

{{DNB lkpl|Surname, Firstname|Firstname Surname}}
eg. {{DNB lkpl|Newton, Isaac|Isaac Newton}} produces Isaac Newton


Supplements

DNB also published supplements which can be identified by their year of publication, for example Supplements were published in 1901 (DNB01) and Errata in 1904 (DNB04). A second variable is required to point to these years

  • {{DNB lkpl|Surname, Firstname|year=XX}}

eg. {{DNB lkpl|Munk, William|year=01}} produces Munk, William that links to Munk, William (DNB01)
or {{DNB lkpl|Munk, William|William Munk}} produces William Munk

Optional parameter

For linking from other works where there is a page reference, or similar, then one can utilise anchor to link to either a page anchor, or a specific anchor. {{DNB lkpl|Surname, Firstname}}
eg. {{DNB lkpl|Newton, Isaac|anchor=375}} produces Newton, Isaac that links to page 375 within the article.
