Template:EB9 Intra-Article Link

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


PurposeEdit

This template provides a means to link more easily from within the running text of articles in the Encyclopædia Britannica, Ninth Edition, both at the main article space and from the page scans. It can also duplicate the functionality of existing templates to provide automatically–small capped links.

It also corrects the oversight in existing templates that fail to automatically correct lower-case links (i.e., to /foo) to the actual capitalized (/Foo) formatting of Wikisource's articles.

UsageEdit

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|name of the article}}

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|display name|name of the article}}

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|display name|name of the article|sc=1}}

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|name of the article|sc=1}}

ExamplesEdit

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|Abyssinia}} gives Abyssinia.

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|Abyssinia|sc=1}} gives Abyssinia.
[Note that this “1” can be set to any value—“yes”, “0”, “no”—other than an empty space and the link will still be formatted to small caps.]

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|abyss}} gives abyss but links to Encyclopædia Britannica, Ninth Edition/Abyss.

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|the British colony|Somaliland#British Somaliland}} gives Somaliland#British Somaliland which links to the British subsection within the larger Somaliland article.

NoteEdit

This template still does not support the linking of article names that are themselves in all-caps:

{{EB9 Intra-Article Link|ABYSSINIA}} gives ABYSSINIA.

Such names—when encountered, e.g., on the automated page scans—should still be formatted to their normal capitalization before being linked.
