Template:Llp
Purpose
This template, which should only be used in non-article pages, simplifies the formatting of example links containing a trailing "pipe" character (|) with no following "link text". That is, it displays (in a monospace font) the "double-brackets" wikicode that would form such a link, as well as actually providing a working link to the target article. See the examples below.
Usage
{{llp|Article title}}
{{llp|Article title|link text}}
Notes
  1. The one required parameter is the title of the article being linked to. If an optional second parameter is provided, it is used as the "link text" in a "piped link" (but note that Template:Lp is more appropriate in that case).
  2. If you don't need an actual live link on the article title, use Template:Lp instead. If you don't need a trailing pipe character (or, as mentioned, if you want to specify text to follow the pipe), use Template:Ll (linked version) or Template:L (non-linked version).
Examples
Mnemonic
The name "llp" is short for "linked link with visible pipe".
