Use this template, whenever you set links to the railml.org website (https://railml.org (external link)).

This template grants that links out of this wiki will be collected in category:External Link. So we keep an overview of external links and control their actuality routinely.

For Links to other websites, please use Template:External.


The template has an obligatory and six optional argument:

  • Obligatory; unnamed
    • 1: the link target, e.g. https://railml.org (external link)
      Notice: the mediawiki software will misinterpret URLs containing the equality sign (=). Replace equality signs in URLs with the HTML-entity =.
      Example: replace {{site|https://www.railml.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=469&start=0&}} with {{site|https://www.railml.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=469&start=0&}} as to display https://www.railml.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=469&start=0& (external link) (railML® website)
  • Optional
    • 2 or text: the link text. If it is empty, the link target will be used as link text. This argument can be used both named or unnamed.
    • date: the publication date of the file
    • type: the file type, e.g. PDF
    • lang: the language of the link target file, e.g. EN
    • visited: the date when the file was visited
    • comment: a comment to be displayed within the brackets
    • domain: The domain of the site: e.g. schemas or forum
    • inlang: en (=default), de or fr for a notice in the language of the context (inlang=silent suppresses the notice)
    • comment: anything that does not fit into the other parameters; a string to be displayed directly

If the second argument is unnamed (example: {{site|https://example.ex|some example text}}), it will be interpreted as link text. If the second argument is named (example:{{site|https://example.ex|type=some file format}}), it will be interpreted according to the argument name.
