Warning icon orange.svg This template is used on a large number of pages.

In order to prevent unnecessary server load, edits should be kept to a minimum. Please experiment in the template's /sandbox or /testcases subpage, or in your own sandbox, and consider discussing your changes on the talk page before applying them.

Information icon.svg Editing a template causes all pages that use the template to be re-rendered. If the template is used often, this can put a lot of load on the server since it fills up the job queue.

Named for "fake IL (internal link)", this template produces an external link dressed to look like an internal link.

Usage

The template has three parameters.

The first parameter is the full url of the link, like so: {{fakeil|http://rationalwikiwiki.org/wiki/TK}}, which produces http://rationalwikiwiki.org/wiki/TK

The second parameter is what you want the link to display as, like this: {{fakeil|http://rationalwikiwiki.org/wiki/TK|TK}}, which produces this: TK

The optional third parameter allows you to change the color of the link, just like a normal link. For example, {{fakeil|http://rationalwikiwiki.org/wiki/TK|TK|#FFFF00}} produces this: TK
