The first character of the link target is automatically capitalized, such that e.g. <code><nowiki>{{w|xkcd}}</nowiki></code> ({{w|xkcd}}) and <code><nowiki>{{w|Xkcd|xkcd}}</nowiki></code> ({{w|Xkcd|xkcd}}) both link to the same URL. (Wikipedia page titles never start with a lowercase character, though {{w|WP:DISPLAYTITLE|they can display with alternative capitalization}}.)

A template to make a link to Wikipedia.

Usage

  • {{w}} by itself links to the wikipedia page for the page you use the template on
  • {{w|Page}} links to the wikipedia article on "Page"
  • {{w|Page|Display}} prints "Display" which links to the wikipedia article on "Page"

The first character of the link target is automatically capitalized, such that e.g. {{w|xkcd}} (xkcd) and {{w|Xkcd|xkcd}} (xkcd) both link to the same URL. (Wikipedia page titles never start with a lowercase character, though they can display with alternative capitalization.)
