Frá Wikipedia, hin frælsa alfrøðin

This template can be used to provide a link to the Encyclopædia Britannica's article on a given subject.

Usage[rætta wikitekst]

Add the following to the "External links" section of an article:

* {{Britannica|<page id>|<optional title>}}

<page id> is a numerical value given in the html source of the Britannica article in question. It can be seen at topicId: around line 70. See for example How to view the HTML source code of a web page if you need help with this. The source of https://www.britannica.com/science/pancreas says topicId: 440971 so it would use:

* {{Britannica|440971}}

It produces a link with the url https://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/440971/pancreas. It currently redirects to https://www.britannica.com/science/pancreas but that url may be less stable and cannot be produced by this template. When the template was originally made, britannica.com included <page id> in the normal url.

<optional title> provides an optional title for the link in place of the name of the Wikipedia article, in case the Britannica article has a different name for some reason (i.e. a Latin rather than a common name): For example, the Wikipedia article for the common Daffodil is titled Narcissus pseudonarcissus, while Britannica uses Daffodil and says topicId:149590 in the source. As such, the link would be formatted as follows:

* {{Britannica|149590|Daffodil}}
