Description

This template is designed to create in-line references to Wikipedia pages.

Usage

To use this template, place {{w|<page>}} in an entry where "<page>" is an article on Wikipedia.

For example,

S: Our guest tonight is {{w|James Randi}}.

will produce

S: Our guest tonight is James Randi.

To change the displayed text of the link, use a third parameter. For example,

{{w|John Rennie (editor)|John Rennie}}.

will produce

John Rennie.

It is not necessary to "escape" special characters such as "()#" or replace spaces with underscores ("_").

Note that you can produce a link to Wikipedia's main page by using the format

{{w||Wikipedia}}

producing
