Moved from WoWRP:Village_pump#Interwiki_and_WoWWiki.

How can you set up Interwiki links? For example, WoWWiki has several lore articles that don't need to be duplicated to this wiki. --Shalkis 20:21, 13 November 2006 (CET)

There's a tutorial on how to set up these links. It requires raw database access, though. --Shalkis 11:19, 14 November 2006 (CET)

I think I did it. :P Testing this with this article ww:Defias Brotherhood. You can place {{wowwiki}} on top of the page which you want to link to WoWWiki, remember that the name of the article must be the same if you want to use that template. Eluna (T/C/e) 14:28, 14 November 2006 (CET)
Wikia wikis can also use [[w:c:wow:page_name]] to link to WoWWiki pages, like: w:c:wow:Defias Brotherhood. From what I can tell, this method was used in the {{wowwiki}} template. -- Fandyllic(talk · contr) 2:16 PM PST 27 Jan 2009

You can also use wp to redirect to the English Wikipedia. wp:Wikipedia. Eluna (T/C/e) 14:33, 14 November 2006 (CET)

I made a small tweak on the template to hide the ww prefix. --Shalkis 18:24, 14 November 2006 (CET)
Why? I think it's useful, at least so no one confuses WoWRP with WoWWiki. --Blaze 22:31, 7 June 2007 (CEST)

If you don't want to have to access the MySQL database I suggest using this extension: Extension:Special page to work with the interwiki table . I also noticed that you do not have ParserFunctions installed. This is the only extension I would consider 100% necessary for any MediaWiki wiki. If you need any assistance, contact me. --Imandir 16:12, 1 September 2007 (CEST)
