Template:URL to diff

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

This template converts a diff URL to use the {{diff}} template. Diff URLs must be from the host "en.wikipedia.org", and they must contain one of the query strings |title=, |diff= or |oldid=. In other words, they must be of the format en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?query. URLs of the format en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Page name will not work.


{{subst:URL to diff|url=url|label=label}}


  • url - the diff URL (required).
  • label - a label for the diff link (optional). If this is not specified, the {{diff}} template will produce a numbered link.


Code Result
{{subst:URL to diff|url=https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&diff=472180272&oldid=471996095}} {{diff|Main Page|472180272|471996095}}
