: ''SitePrefix'' is completely [[Wiktionary:case insensitive|case insensitive]] while ''Target page'' is not (it usually must match the target page exactly). The first colon (<tt>:</tt>) 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:Wikipedia:Interlanguage links|Wikipedia:Interlanguage links]] for more information about this.)

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.

Contents

Usage

An interwiki link is a link of the form:

[[SitePrefix:Target page]]

where SitePrefix comes from the table below and Target page is the name of the page at the remote site.

Examples:

As these examples show, Target page can contain spaces; these are converted to underscores (_) in the final URL.

Note that SitePrefix is completely case insensitive, so capitalization does not matter. Target page, however, usually must match the remote page name exactly.

Occasionally, an interwiki link is misinterpreted by the MediaWiki software as something else. If this seems to be happening to you, try using a colon (:) in front of the SitePrefix.

  • [[:Wikiquote:Albert Einstein]] works exactly the same as the original example above

Our interwiki map

This table contains only what we consider the most useful sites for editors working on the Iron Chariots wiki. The full interwiki map is available separately. Unless you already know what site you want to link to, you probably should stick to this list.

Iron Chariots additions/changes
SitePrefix URL Comment
BibleGatewayNIV http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=$1&version=31 Added (New International Version)
BibleGatewayKJV http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=$1&version=9 Added (King James Version)
