These templates are designed to provide article-to-article linking between Meta-Wiki and its Wikimedia sister projects.

This page is about coordination in the names and parameter uses in all of this kind of Wikimedia templates.

General considerationsEdit

Par is used generally in the template name to point to a concrete page name in a sister project (i.e.wikiquotepar).


WiktionaryEdit

Pages needing to be moved:

Links to pages on the Wiktionary site:

  • Box format
    • Template:Wiktionary (uses PAGENAME and generates a search rather than linking directly to a page — because Wiktionary article titles are fully case sensitive, this may not yield the desired result)
    • Template:Wiktionarypar (uses parameter as in {{Wiktionarypar|SomePage}})
  • To define a word in-line with other text, create an interwiki link in the format: [[wiktionary:SomeWord|definition of SomeWord]].
