मोड्युल:External links

मैथिली विकिपिडियासँ, एक मुक्त विश्वकोश

This module is designed for implementing templates to display external links in an English Wikipedia article, using the properties defined in that article's Wikidata item. It was based on the Norwegian Wikipedia module no:Modul:External links.

The first test implementation is Template:Sports links (based on no:Mal:Sportslenker). The sports-related link properties and formats are specified in Module:External links/conf/Sports (based on no:Modul:External links/conf/Sport).

Other subject-based implementations at the Norwegian Wikipedia include:
