The following documentation is transcluded from Template:Sf-encyc/doc:

Usage

This template is used to link to the SF-Encyclopedia website entries for authors, movies, etc. An initial variable is required giving the end path to the article in question, and a second variable can be used to alter the linking text. The "end path" to the article is the portion of text in the URL following "entry/".

If no initial variable is given, the link will go to the main SF-Encyclopedia.com webpage, such as:

{{sf-encyc}}

Which would produce:

SF-Encyclopedia.com

For example, to link to Theodore Sturgeon's SF-Encyclopedia.com article, a page would have a template call such as:

{{sf-encyc|sturgeon_theodore}}

This would produce:

Theodore Sturgeon at SF-Encyclopedia.com

If other link text is desired, such as "Ted Sturgeon", the following format should be used:

{{sf-encyc|sturgeon_theodore|Ted Sturgeon}}

This would produce:

Ted Sturgeon at SF-Encyclopedia.com

A third parameter can be passed to change the path from the standard "entry" path used on SF-Encyclopedia.com for links to interviews or other such news articles:

{{sf-encyc|terry-pratchett-(1948-2015)|Terry Pratchett obituary|news}}

This would produce:

Terry Pratchett obituary at SF-Encyclopedia.com
