{{PSM link|title of article page|volume number|month & year of publication}}


* {{PSM link|Sketch of Prof. Gray|1|August 1872}}

displays as:


The order of the parameters by default is

  1. title of article page = title
  2. volume number = vol
  3. month/year of publication = date

though if you use all parameter names, order can be varied. All these parameters are mandatory for a functional template link to be generated.

  • Two optional parameters can be used to override visible text and position on page of work
    • anchor to change the link position on referred page to a predefined anchor
    • author to include the name of the author of the article
    • override_title to change the descriptive text visible for the link.

Note: The parameter volumename is for the use of automatic link creation, using the full "Volume #" from the article page name instead of simply "#" when manually entered.
