Purpose

This template's purpose is to easily link to Web Archive captures of an external site in a standard format in the main section of an article. It should not be used for web citations, as Template:Cite web has options included for archived URLs.

  • Link URL: The original URL of the site you want to link to.
  • Link text: The display text of the external link.
  • Archive URL: The archived URL of the site you want to link to.
