Background[edit]

This template provides a simple list of links to sister WMF projects.

  • An interface to this template is already included in {{header}}, {{author}} and {{portal header}}, and this methodology is to be used as the preference in the respective namespaces — Main, Author and Portal
  • Where the above header templates are not used this template is to be used, instead of bulky templates like {{wikipedia}}.

Usage[edit]

{{Plain sister
| edition = yes
| portal = 
| related_author = 
| wikipedia = 
| commons = 
| commonscat = 
| wikiquote = 
| wikinews = 
| wiktionary = 
| wikibooks = 
| wikiversity = 
| wikispecies = 
| wikivoyage = 
| wikidata = 
| wikilivres = 
| meta = 
}}

Parameters[edit]

This template uses the following parameters. All parameters are optional. If no parameters are entered the data may be accessed from Wikidata; otherwise, no output will be generated.

  • edition: Link to the associated talk-page when set to yes.
  • portal: Link to the named portal. Multiple portals can be linked by separating portals with a forward slash, eg. United States/Australia. Maximum of ten portals can be added
  • related_author: Link to the named author. Multiple authors can be linked by separating authors with a forward slash, eg. William Shakespeare/Francis Bacon
  • wikipedia: Link to Wikipedia (displays as article)
  • commons: Link to Wikicommons (displays as media) )
  • commonscat: An alternative link to Wikicommons, this links to a category instead of a gallery (displays as media category)

  • wikinews: Link to Wikinews (displays as news)
  • wiktionary: Link to Wiktionary (displays as definition)
