This documentation is transcluded from Template:W/doc.

This template is used to help create interwiki links without displaying the prefix, and without the need for repetition if the page name is to display; in this case understroke characters in the page name are replaced by space characters.

  • The default prefix is simply w: which creates a link to the English Wikipedia. However the language can be specified in the third parameter instead of en.

Usage

{{W |1= }}

TemplateData

TemplateData is a way to store information about template parameters (the description of those and of the whole template) for both humans and machines. It is used by VisualEditor and possibly other tools like Upload Wizard.


Existing template documentation
At Wikimedia Commons, it is recommended to use {{TemplateBox}} with either useTemplateData=1 or useTemplateData=only on the /doc subpage and transcluding it with {{Documentation}} into the template. <nowiki>-tags can be wrapped around the arguments, if required, to avoid templates being expanded.

Newly created template documentation and imports
Another option, especially for imported templates, or for users with JSON experience, is placing raw <templatedata>-tags into the Wikitext of the template, as described in various Wikipediae.

Discussion
There is an ongoing discussion about that matter. Feel invited to comment if you are experienced in either way, your time permits and if you like to share your opinion or to make a suggestion.

All these "W×" templates are shortcuts of the main template {{W}}, setting the language code with parameter 3: {{ link }} is just {{ Wlink3 = ×× }}

More W× templates are elsewhere in use:
but there are no other language codes starting with "w", so plenty of "W×" templates may be created.

Localization

This template is not intended to be localized.

Recommendation

Instead of an external link to sister projects (e.g. [http://en.wikipedia.org en.wikipedia]) better use an internal one (like {{W||en.wikipedia}}).
