Template:Double link

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

UsageEdit

This template creates a wikilink that takes a different value depending on whether it is located within the Page: and Index: namespaces or other namespaces such as Main.

It takes 3 arguments. The first is the link for the Page: namespace, the second is the link for the Main namespace, the third is displayed text.

ExampleEdit

The code below links to Page:Life with the Esquimaux - 1864 - Volume 2.djvu/356 in the Page: namespace, it to Life with the Esquimaux/Volume 2/Appendix#a1 in the Main namespace, and it displays Appendix, No. 1. in both cases:

{{double link|Page:Life with the Esquimaux - 1864 - Volume 2.djvu/356|Life with the Esquimaux/Volume 2/Appendix#a1|Appendix, No. 1.}}
