Usage

This utility is a typing saver for use on talk pages to link another users's talk page on another Template:Sisterproject. This template takes two or three parameters.

What to enter

Parameter 1 (project)
The first parameter designates the project to which the link is directed. It must be either of the following.
  • a link prefix—e.g. W:, V:, M:, Wikt:, B:, etc.
  • nil—a space or a skipped parameter (two pipes next to one another)
Parameter 2 (username)
The second must be a username as exists in the project's User talk namespace (not a signature nor a nickname).
Parameter 3 (nickname)
The third parameter is optional. Any string is acceptable.

The result

The direction of the link
The link will be directed to a page in the User talk namespace of the given project.
  • The project will be as specified by parameter 1.
    • If this is nil (as above) the template operates with the local {{SITENAME}} identically with {{Ut}}.
  • The talk page will be as specified in parameter 2.
What is displayed
  • If a third parameter has been specified, then this will be what is displayed.
  • Where no third parameter is specified the username as specified in parameter 2 is displayed.
