The {{Sister project links}} template provides links to the 'Search' page on the various Wikimedia sister projects. If a matching article exists, the reader will be directed there. Otherwise, normal search results are show


{{Sister-links |w= |wikt= |commons= |b= |n= |s= |v= |voy= |species= |d= |display= }}

<!-- input 'no' to exclude projects -->


If using a large, graphical template produces odd layout problems, like the excessive white space shown on the right of this screenshot, then switch to a different sister template.
  • Do not place this template in a section all by itself.
  • Do not place this template in a section containing columns.

This template should normally be placed at the top of the ==External links== section at the end of an article, if the article has a section for external links. If no such section exists, then please place it at the top of the last section in the article.

On disambiguation pages, this template should be listed above other text, but below any cleanup templates, images, infoboxes or navboxes.

See: Where to place links for more information and alternative


  • If the search parameter differs from the pagename, use:
{{Sister-links |SearchParameter}}
  • display= if the display name is different from the search term, use:
{{Sister-links |SearchParameter |display=DisplayName}}
For example, the Bear article would be coded as: {{Sister-links |display=Bears}}
For example:
{{Sister-links |w=Foo1 |wikt=Foo2 |commons=Foo3 |b=Foo4 |n=Foo5 |s=Foo6 |v=Foo7 |voy=Foo8 |d=Foo9 |species=Foo10}}
  • author= for articles about authors, use:
{{Sister-links |author=yes}}
to force the sisterlinks to include the Author: prefix.

Default display[edit]

  • If you would like to exclude a link to a particular sister project, input no as the parameter for that sister project. For example, use:
{{Sister-links |w=no}}
to exclude the Wikipedia sister project. Only these parameters will display by default: w, wikt, commons, b, n, s, and v.
  • Note: Links to Wikivoyage, Wikidata and Wikispecies are disabled by default. To show one or more of these sister projects, add the following:
{{Sister-links |voy=DestinationName |d=RelatedName |species=ScientificName}}
