The purpose of this template is to provide a standard format for labeling links to the official website of an article's main topic.

Usage

Basic usage

This template can be used without specifying any parameters, if the "official website" Property (P856) is set in the respective article's Wikidata record. Just add {{official website}} to the article's External links section. If on Wikidata more than one official website is given, the entry tagged with the language being English is automatically preferred.

Advanced usage

Four parameters are available:

Some URLs that contain special characters, such as & or =, will break the template. The solution is to prepend the URL with 1=
