This module creates links to sections, nicely formatted with the "§" symbol instead of the default "#".

Usage

From wikitext

From wikitext, this module should be used via the template {{section link}}. Please see the template page for documentation.

From Lua

First, load the module:

local mSectionLink = require('Module:Section link')

You can then make section links via the _main function.

mSectionLink._main(page, sections, options, title)

Parameters:

  • page - the page name to link to. Defaults to the full page name of title, or the current title if that is not specified.
  • sections - an array of section names to link to, or a string to link to just one section name.
  • options - a table of options. Accepts the following fields:
    • nopage - set this to true to avoid displaying the base page name in links.
  • title - a default mw.title object to use instead of the current title. Intended for testing purposes.

All parameters are optional.
