==Linking to a diff==
If you need to create a link to a specific diff (for use on a talk page or noticeboard, for example), thenit is best to use the [[Special:Diff/''<code>oldid</code>''<nowiki>]]</nowiki> method or {{Tl|Diff}}, which make links work across protocols (<code>http://</code> vs. <code>https://</code>) and on our mobile site. Alternatively, locate the diff from the [[Help:Page history|page history]], go to the diff page, and copy the [[URL]] from your browser's address bar. You can either paste this URL (the whole of it, including <nowiki>http://</nowiki>) into the text of the page where you want the link to appear, putting single square brackets [...] around it. Better is to use the [[Special:Diff/''<code>oldid</code>''<nowiki>]]</nowiki> method or {{Tl|Diff}}, which make links work across protocols (<code>http://</code> vs. <code>https://</code>) and on our mobile site.
