Template:Linktext

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

The {{Linktext}} template creates inline links for text within the template's parameters. Each word separately links to a page with a title that matches that word on Wiktionary, by default, or on any other interwiki or interlanguage Wikipedias.

Interlanguage links on general are links from a page in one Wikipedia in one language to a page in another Wikipedia in another language.

Usage

The default target that this template links to is Wiktionary. To change the target, set the parameter pref to some other value. For example, "c" for commons, or "th" for Thai Wikipedia.

Use the arguments n1, n2, n3, etc. to specify items that should not be linked. Regular spaces will be removed from the beginning and end of these; if you must have spaces, use   instead.

If you want to have a delimiter, such as ", ", appear between links, specify the delimiter with lim.

If desired, you can specify the language code with lang (rationale explained here). This is not required if Template:Linktext is used inside a template that specifies the language, such as Template:Zh.

Examples

{{Linktext|This| is| a| test}}
This is a test
{{Linktext|This| is|n2= not| a| test}}
This is not a test

Also can be used to wikt-link individual Chinese characters:

{{linktext|雲|居|道|膺}}

Examples of result of specifying "lang" (differences in characters explained here and here):

{{Linktext|雲|緑|lang=ja}}
{{Linktext|雲|緑|lang=zh}}

Template Alias Explanation
{{Wiktionary}} {{wikt}} Makes a box.
{{Wiktionary pipe}} {{wtp}} Ditto. Allows a piped link.
{{See Wiktionary}} A disambiguation hatnote type. Useful if the article title is a generic name, but the content differs from it. For example, Tryout is an article about a journal, and this template is used to link to "tryout" page in Wiktionary.
{{Wiktionary-inline}} {{wti}} Can be used in the "External links" section, by making a one-line navigator. Not inline in the usual sense.
{{Wiktionary redirect}} {{wtr}} Makes a soft redirect.
{{Wiktionary category 2}} {{wtc}} Similar to {{wikt}}, but links to a category in Wiktionary.
{{Wiktionary category}} Ditto, more verbose type.
{{Linktext}} Turns each of consecutive words into an Wiktionary link, or any other interwiki / interlang link. Example: {{linktext|táłtłʼááh|adijiłii}}  →  táłtłʼááh adijiłii
{{wt}} Links to a language-specific section of a Wiktionary entry.
{{wikt-lang}} Applies a language tag to a word, and links to that language's section of the Wiktionary entry on the word, much like the {{m}} and {{l}} templates on Wiktionary. For instance, {{wikt-lang|en|be|was}} yields was, and is equivalent to {{lang|en|[[wikt:be#English|was]]}}.
