Template:ColorLink

From BIONICLEsector01


Documentation

This template produces a link with the inputted color.

Parameters

Parameter Function
(first parameter) The link color
(second parameter) The article to link to
(third parameter) (optional) The text in the link

Default: the value of (second parameter)

Why?

The standard way to color links in MediaWiki is to write [[article-title|<font color="link-color">link-text</font>]], or [[article-title|<span style="color: link-color;">link-text</span>]]. (The second way is better, since it doesn't rely on the outdated font tag.) For example, you could write [[Matau|<span style="color: green;">Matau</span>]] to produce Matau.

These methods do not change the actual link color, they just change the color of the text inside the link. As a result, the methods from earlier don't change the link's underline color. This template actually changes the link color, so the underline color is correct.

Examples

{{ColorLink|green|Matau}}

produces Matau.

{{ColorLink|goldenrod|Takanuva|Takua}}

produces Takua.
