[edit] Template-info.png Template documentation

This template should be used whenever linking external web content in "External Links" sections. See WikiIslam:Formatting for more information. Uses Template:External link/core

Note: If the "author" field is used, please also use the field's for publisher and publication date.


{{external link| url = | title = | linksummary = | publisher = | author = | date = | archiveurl = | deadurl = no}}
  • url= URL of an online location where the text of the publication can be found.
  • title= Title of web page.
  • linksummary= Summary of the link. Not yet fixed but can accept parameter.
  • publisher= Organization or website's name. A website's URL should be used only when there is no proper name available. So, for example, Islam Q&A is located at islamqa.info, but Islam Q&A is the title that should be cited as the publisher.
  • author= Name of author or authors if available.
  • date= Full date of source being referenced in the month/day/year format (e.g. February 21, 2014). This is the date mentioned on the website (if any).
  • archiveurl= The URL of an archived copy of a web page, if or in case the url becomes unavailable. Typically used to refer to services like WebCite.
  • deadurl= When the URL is still live, but preemptively archived, then set |deadurl=no. This changes the display order with the title retaining the original link and the archive linked at the end.
