Internal wiki linking

These exist so you can cross-reference the same articles, but on different language wikis. For example, on "Water" there is a French, German, and Spanish version of this article. So at the end of this page on "Water", this code exists:


These are the article names of "Water" on each of these three wikis. And on the German Wiki's article of "Water" this is on its bottom:


These happen on each of the pages that have interwiki links. However, let's say you are working on the German Wiki and you add interwiki links to a page that lead to a valid article name on other wikis, the Interwiki Bot automatically cross-references by reading the German article and adding the correct interwiki links on those other pages. This allows correct formatting of these links and keeps everything clean. To request the Interwiki Bot to run, contact Shane.
