Using this template

  • You should always place this template at the top of a "Other websites" section. For an example, see Barack Obama#Other websites.
  • When possible, use the Simple English page. If there isn't a Simple English page, please use the regular English page (anything with a "-en" at the end is for regular English). Please don't use both the Simple English and regular English links.
  • "commons" will take you to a regular Commons page; "commonscat" will take you to a Commons category. Of the two, "commons" is better; a category is unorganized, while a full Commons page will have descriptions for each image.
  • "source" will take you to an Author page on Wikisource; use "source-other" to link to a regular article there.
  • "news" will perform a search on the English Wikinews; "newscat" can be used for very important figures that have entire categories on Wikinews.
