This template produces links to external websites with reduced styling (eg: no arrow icon); making it useful in spacing-sensitive layouts.

Examples

http://google.com/

{{Plainlink|http://google.com/}}

Boogle

{{Plainlink|http://google.com/|Boogle}}

Using equals signs

Because of the nature of templates, using an equals sign in an URL will produce an erroneous link:

You can however Encode the equals-sign to pass it appropriately, or use a template to transclude the raw equals-sign. See the following examples in order of reliability:
