Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

mw:Main Page

The following template description is not displayed when the template is inserted in an article.


This template can be used for links to MediaWiki wiki pages.


{{mediawiki|page title|alternative text|lang=|oldid=|diff=}}

All parameters are optional.

page title
Page title to link to. Defaults to Main Page.
alternative text
Alternative text to be shown instead of the page title. Note that if this parameter is not given, mw: will be appended to the page name.
Language code to link to another language version than the English one. The language will not be shown (currently not implemented), but the page title might give a hint.
Oldid from the end of the MediaWiki wiki permalink URL to use when linking to a specific article revision. Can be found through the page history.
If not empty a link to a diff comparing the oldid revision with the previous revision will be shown. Instead of a regular link and a permalink a permalink and a link to a diff will be shown.
