Templates for linking to sister projects

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
(Redirected from Sister projects)
Jump to: navigation, search

See also Wikimedia projects and the complete list of Wikimedia projects.

These templates are designed to provide article-to-article linking between Meta-Wiki and its Wikimedia sister projects.

This page is about coordination in the names and parameter uses in all of this kind of Wikimedia templates.

General considerations[edit]

Par is used generally in the template name to point to a concrete page name in a sister project (i.e.wikiquotepar).

    • Template:Wikipediapar (uses parameter as in {{Wiktionarypar|SomePage}})
