[edit] info-48x48.png Template documentation

This template allows you to insert a pre-formatted block declaring that the associated article has been copied from another wiki. The template takes three arguments (all of which need to be supplied to make the final rendering complete): The first is the general name of the originating wiki, e.g. Guild of Writers or UAM (the work "wiki" is added by the template after the name). The second is the URL of the original page (an external reference); if the full URL is to be displayed, then do not enclose the URL inside [...], as that will display only a numbered link. The third argument is a reference to license under which the original article was published. If an appropriate license page exists on this wiki then that page may be cited using [[...]] notation. Otherwise, the license name and URL to license reference text should be given, e.g. [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License].

Usage

Typical usage is to insert the following into your document where you would like the block to appear: {{CopiedFrom|Guild of Writers|http://guildofwriters.org/wiki/KI:_New_Feature_Log|[[GNU Free Documentation License]]}} which will produce a block like this:

This page is copied from the Guild of Writers wiki.
The original page is located at: http://guildofwriters.org/wiki/KI:_New_Feature_Log, where it is published under the GNU Free Documentation License. Please make any edits only on the original page and not on this copy. Updates to the original article will be mirrored here as necessary but may lag by several days.


Please note that for this template to work, "CopiedFrom" must use "F" in upper case.
