RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Template:Wpl

Usage

This is a template for in-text linking to Wikipedia in articles, as using a piped link with the [[wp:]] prefix creates a link that is hard to distinguish from an internal link and may confuse the reader. It's not necessary to use the template on discussion pages, because there the wp: prefix doesn't have to be hidden.

Like the other Wikipedia templates, it's best to use this template sparingly.

If the name of the Wikipedia article is the same as the desired text of the link, use just

{{wpl|name of Wikipedia article}}

If you want to put some other text in the link or format it in some special way, you need to pass it as the second parameter:

{{wpl|name of Wikipedia article|''alternative'' text}}

To avoid leaving a large space before a punctuation sign, leave the second parameter blank and use the punctuation sign as a third parameter. For example:

{{wpl|Conservapedia||,}}

results in Conservapedia,Wikipedia
