{{Wayback/doc}} is intended to simplify the linking process to files at the Internet Archive "Wayback Machine".

Additionally, {{Cite web}} provides an archiveurl

Parameters[edit source]



The URL of the link that is being referenced in the Internet Archives.
title (optional)
The text label for the external link. If this is omitted, a generic 'Archive copy' label will be used.
date (optional, but recommended)
The Internet Archive timestamp (YYYYMMDDhhmmss) for the date of the archived page that is to be displayed. If provided, the Template will format the date and display it : Month-name, day-number, year. If omitted, the history of the referenced page will be listed instead. You must use the full 4 digits for the year, and 2 digits for month, day, hour minute and second. use leading zeros if necessary, and use a 24 hour clock for the time.
