[{{{url}}} ]


The "link" template provides a way to store both the original URL and the URL of an archived snapshot of the page. If the original link should die, inserting the word "dead" in front of "link" will switch it over to the "dead link" template instead. The "dead link" template points to the archive URL.

If there is not already an archived snapshot available at the Internet Archive, requesting a snapshot while the link is live will ensure that at least one snapshot will be available later if the link dies.

To search for a snapshot of a page or take a new snapshot with minimal clicking, you can add bookmarklets to your browser bookmarks.


Arguments:

  • url (Required.) Specifies the live link.
  • archive (Optional.) Specifies the full url of an archived snapshot of the link.
  • link text (Optional, unnamed argument.) The text that appears on the link (for instance, "Review").

Basic Format:

{{link|url=http://www.original-link.com|archive=http://www.archived-version.com|Link Text}}


Example:

{{link|url=https://emshort.wordpress.com/2016/06/05/the-mary-jane-of-tomorrow/|archive=https://web.archive.org/web/20160608153033/http://emshort.wordpress.com/2016/06/05/the-mary-jane-of-tomorrow/|The Mary Jane of Tomorrow}}

appears as

The Mary Jane of Tomorrow

and points to the original url.
