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

  1. Pagename, optionally preceded by an interwiki link prefix valid on mediawiki.org
  2. (optional) Link description

{{ #ifeq: www.ancestry.co.uk | www.mediawiki.org | 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 'mediawikiwiki' (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 [[mediawikiwiki:m:Help:Calculation|Help:Calculation]].
