Documentation

This template creates a link from a CPDL page to a related article on Wikipedia. It is optimized for biography articles (composers, lyricists etc.) but can be used on other pages too.

Syntax

{{WikipediaLink|1=<article title on WP>|2=<text to be displayed on the link>|lang=<2-digit language code>}}

or, without numbered parameters:

{{WikipediaLink|<article title on WP>|<text to be displayed on the link>|lang=<2-digit language code>}}

Note that all parameters are optional:

  • |1= is necessary only when the Wikipedia article's title is different from the title on CPDL. If not informed, the CPDL's page title will be used instead.
  • |2= is used to customize the link text. If not informed, the CPDL's page title will be used instead.
  • |lang= is useful when there isn't an article on the English Wikipedia yet, but a Wikipedia article is available in another language. Besides linking to the Wikipedia article, it also offers a Google Translation of that article into English.
