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

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 External.svg follow the link. This can be used, for example, when internal or interwiki links appear as external links.


  • {{plain link|url=}} gives [1]
  • {{plain link| Wikibooks}} gives Wikibooks
  • {{plain link| | Wikibooks}} gives Wikibooks

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

  • {{plainlink | url= | name="=" }} gives "="
