Default display[change source]

  • If you would like to exclude a link to a particular sister project, input no as the parameter for that sister project. For example, use:
{{Sister project links | q=no}}
to exclude the Wikiquote sister project. Only these parameters will display by default: wikt, commons, b, n, q, s and v. However, voy only displays by default if the entity type on Wikidata is "geographical feature".
  • Note: Links to MediaWiki, Meta-Wiki, Wikidata and Wikispecies are disabled by default. To show one or more of these sister projects, add the following:
{{Sister project links| m=Title | d=RelatedName | species=ScientificName |mw=DocumentationName}}
Alternatively, use species_author=PersonName for taxonomic authors on Wikispecies

Location[change source]

If using a large, graphical template produces odd layout problems, like the excessive white space shown on the right of this screenshot, then switch to a different sister template.

N Do not place this template in a section all by itself.

N Do not place this template in a section containing columns.

This template should normally be placed at the top of the Other websites section at the end of an article, if the article has a section for links to other websites. If no such section exists, then please place it at the top of the last section in the article.

On disambiguation pages, this template should be listed above other text, but below any cleanup templates, images, infoboxes or navboxes.
