Template documentation

This template will allow you to create a local or interwiki link (such as a link to the history of a page) on a page without having the External.svg follow the link. This can be used, for example, when internal or interwiki links appear as external links. See w:Help:URL § URLs on other Wikimedia projects for more information.


  • {{Plain link |url=//}} gives [1]
  • {{Plain link |// Wikipedia}} gives Wikipedia
  • {{Plain link | | Wikipedia}} gives Wikipedia


Do not leave a space before the start of the URL, it confuses the [ URL ] parser.

If you leave the "scheme" (http: or https:) off the start of the URL parameter, the hyperlink will use the current page's protocol.

If your url or link title contains an equals sign = you must use named parameters or {{=}}:

  • {{Plainlink|url=|name="="}} gives "="
  • {{Plainlink|{{=}}Equals_sign&oldid{{=}}282228764|"{{=}}"}} gives "="
