Bollocks. I've just realised that this will only work on English pages, because there's no way to detect and remove the :<lang> suffix on an article name. A French page trying to link to a Norwegian page would get Some_Page:fr:no, which of course is wrong. I really don't want to allow people to type in arbitrary article names either, since that allows the usual naming convention to be broken. :-( --TomEdwards 20:09, 13 July 2009 (UTC)

How do you do it?

Could someone explain to me how to create a page in another language? --Nathaniel 00:20, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

3-border style

Awesome, Artfunkel. Looks great. —Mattshu 15:22, 28 June 2011 (PDT)


JeffLane added the feature "noborder" ("|noborder=true" removing borders). Please somebody write description for this. I can't because my English is so bad.

Making noborder default, not optional

I'm voting for the removal of the border all together. In my opinion, I think it looks a little cleaner without a border. —Mattshu 19:42, 27 August 2011 (PDT)


Check Template:Lang. It's the same as this but now, languages are detected automatically. I think with that, this template is now obsolete and should be passively replaced with Lang. This is one of our most important templates so I'm asking for input on the new one's use. Pinsplash (talk) 10:09, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

This might still be usefull when a translated page doesn't follow standard naming conventions (i.e. is not named pagename:lang). — Dr. Orange talk · contributions 10:27, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
Very true. Honestly I think the language suffixes should have been done with / and not :. There's nothing native to MediaWiki that recognizes : aside from namespaces. If they were done with / #titleparts could have been used. Far too late to change that standard though. Pinsplash (talk) 11:39, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
