Help:Interwiki links

Jump to: navigation, search

Interwiki links are wikilinks that lead to a wiki on another site. They are formatted in the same way as a wikilink that points to another Namespace but are shown as a special type of link that is like an external link without the arrow. To create an interwiki link, just create a regular wikilink, but use the prefix in the beginning. For example, typing [[w:Sean Connery]] will create "w:Sean Connery. To remove the prefix from or change the link text, type [[w:Sean Connery|Sean Connery]].

This page lists the prefixes of interwiki links.
