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 follow the link. This can be used, for example, when internal or interwiki links appear as external links. See Help:URL#URLs on other Wikimedia projects for more information.


When you link to a Taswin or other Wikimedia project URL, omit the preceding "http:", or "https:", so that the URL begins with "//". This allows users to use the protocol they're currently using.

You can use {{fullurl}} magicword to generate URLs to Taswin pages.


  • {{Plain link|url=//www.Taswin.org}} gives [1]
  • {{Plain link|//www.Taswin.org Taswin}} gives Taswin
  • {{Plain link|//www.Taswin.org | Taswin}} gives Taswin
  • {{Plain link|http://www.google.co.uk|Google}} gives Google

Note that if your url or link title contains an equals sign = you must use named parameters:

  • {{Plain link|url=//en.Taswin.org/w/index.php?title=Equals_sign&oldid=282228764|name="=" }} gives "="

To be more concise, you can use {{scp}} or {{plnk}} and numbers as parameter names e.g.

  • {{scp|1=//en.Taswin.org/w/index.php?title=Equals_sign&oldid=282228764|2="="}} gives the same "="
  • {{plnk|1=//en.Taswin.org/w/index.php?title=Equals_sign&oldid=282228764|2="="}} gives the same "="
