Can be used to provide a link to a [W]Wikidata item. Can sometimes be useful instead of {{Wikipedia}} or {{WikiIcon}} if no [W] Wikipedia article is available.


{{Wikidata[|item id[|text]][|id=yes][|icon=yes|no]}}


  • First parameter: Wikidata item id prefixed with Q, e.g. Q936 for OSM. Without this parameter no link can be generated.
  • Second parameter: Optional text shown instead of or before the item id (see first parameter and optional id=yes).
  • id=yes: Optional parameter for appending the item id (in brackets) to the text from the second parameter.
  • icon=yes|no: Optional parameter to force or suppress the Wikidata icon. The default is yes if called with the second parameter (text), otherwise it is no (backward compatible).
