Interwiki links allow articles to link to specific pages on external wikis or other external sites using standard wiki markup, provided those sites have a predictable URL format that includes the ability to process a parameter (for the page name or search criteria, etc.) For more information, see [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InterWiki InterWiki] at Wikipedia for background information and [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Interwiki_map Wikimedia's Interwiki map] for an example.

An interwiki map is a list of "shortcuts" that enables the editors of a wiki to use simple "internal style" wikilinks to link to specific pages on external wikis or other websites, provided that those sites have a predictable URL format. For further background information, please see Wikipedia:InterWiki.

Our interwiki map

  • Full interwiki map — This list mostly matches the default interwiki map provided by the MediaWiki software; if you are already familiar with interwiki links from another MediaWiki-based wiki (e.g., Wikipedia), most links should work the same way here.
  • List of our changes to the default interwiki map — For the convenience of users already familiar with MediaWiki's default interwiki map, we provide this much shorter list (reproduced below) containing only the changes we've made to that default list.
  • Interwiki requests — Use this page to request additions, deletions, or other modifications to our current interwiki map.

Usage

General format:

[[:SitePrefix:Target page]]
SitePrefix is completely case insensitive while Target page is not (it usually must match the target page exactly). The first colon (:) is optional and should only be needed if the link is not properly interpreted as an in-line interwiki link. (This might happen, for example, if we set up different language wikis for this site and SitePrefix matches one of the language codes used; see Wikipedia:Interlanguage links for more information about this.)

Specific examples:

[[:wikiquote:Einstein]] appears as wikiquote:Einstein and links to http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Einstein
[[:wikiquote:Einstein|]] appears as Einstein and links to the same location

Site-specific links

The following interwiki links have been specifically added (or modified) for use on this site. They represent sites which may be useful to editors working on the Iron Chariots wiki.
