This template links to a page on mediawiki.org from the Help pages. The template has three parameters:

  1. Pagename, optionally preceded by an interwiki link prefix valid on mediawiki.org
  2. (optional) Link description
  3. (optional) Special. Set this to "yes" for special pages, and the template will link to the local Special page if it exists (otherwise, it will point to mediawiki.org).

{{ #ifeq: MeritBadgeDotOrg | MediaWiki | This is so that the public domain help pages - which can be freely copied and included in other sites - have correct links to Mediawiki:

  • on external sites, it creates an interwiki link to 'mw' (included in the default interwiki table for new installs)
  • on Mediawiki, it creates an internal or interwiki link

All links from the Help namespace to other parts of the mediawiki.org wiki should use this template.}}

Demo of interwiki link

{{mediawiki|m:Help:Calculation|Help:Calculation}} gives either
[[m:Help:Calculation|Help:Calculation]] or [[mw:m:Help:Calculation|Help:Calculation]].
