Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used to link to articles containing further information on a topic, where English Wikipedia does not yet have such an article, but another language Wikipedia does. It looks like this:

It is typically used at the top of a section, when the topic of that section is covered in more detail by a page on another Wikipedia. It combines the features of {{Further}} and {{Interlanguage link}}, and provides one of the chief advantages of red links by pointing out a topic that should have an article on English Wikipedia but does not, while indicating where such information is readily available.


Basic usageTemplate:Sndone interwiki link

{{Further ill|Ocean swell fairies|fr|Fée des houles}}
More than one interwiki link
{{Further ill|Geiseltal fossil bed|de|Fossillagerstätte Geiseltal|fr|Gisement de fossiles du Geiseltal|es|Yacimiento de Geiseltal}}
Same name in English as in other languages
{{Further ill|Margarita Cueto|ca|es|pt}}


This template accepts the following parameters:

  • 1 Template:Snd the page on English Wikipedia. This must be a red link, or a redirect with possibilities. (If it isn't, use {{Further}} instead.) Required.
  • 2 and 3 - the language code and page to link to on a sister Wikipedia. Required. Links to sections are automatically formatted as page § section, rather than the MediaWiki default of page#section.
  • 4 and 5 - another lang-code and page to link to on a foreign wikipedia. Optional. If 5 is missing, {{ill}} supplies the same value as the English topic in param 1.
  • 6 and 7 - a third code + page pair, to link a foreign Wikipedia article. Optional. If 7 is missing, it takes the value from param 1.
  • ltTemplate:Sndas for {{ill}}, the |lt= parameter (which stands for "link text") is used to create a piped link. Alias: |label=.
  • topic - like {{Further}}, adds "...on Topic" to the output text.

Modifying the display

Displaying different text

To create a piped link (text displayed that is different from the title of the page to which the text links), use the |lt= parameter (which stands for "link text").

Vertical alignment

The default vertical alignment of the bracketed interlanguage links is superscript. This can be altered by adding:

  • vertical-align=sub to place the links in subscript
  • vertical-align=base to place the links on the baseline. Alias: vertical-align=none

If a required param is missing, the template will output a message. For example:

{{Further ill|Luigi Madonis}}Error: no interlanguage code specified. (help).

Pages that contain this error message are tracked in Category:Pages with errors in Template:Further ill.

When not to use this template

If you only wish to link to an article on a foreign language Wikipedia, without indicating a missing article on English Wikipedia, use {{Further}} instead, prefixing the page name in a foreign Wikipedia with the required interlanguage code:

{{Further|fr:Face nord de l'Eiger|ca:Cara nord de l'Eiger|de:Eiger-Nordwand}}
{{Further|de:Eero Heinonen|de:Eero Heinonen|es:Eero Heinonen|fi:Eero Heinonen}}
