This template is used for creating soft redirects to Independent Gaming Wiki Network and Grand Theft Mods. The usual redirect syntax #REDIRECT [[mods:PAGE NAME]] doesn't work for interwiki redirects, so this template provides a clickable link instead.

To use this template, use the following format:

{{softredirect|interwiki code|page name}}

In the above example code, interwiki code refers to the prefix used for linking to the destination wiki. For IGWN this is igwn and for Grand Theft Mods it is gtm. This code should NOT include the colon (:)

In addition, page name refers to the name of the destination article on that wiki.

For example, to link to GTM's Modifications page, use the following code:

{{softredirect|gtm|Modifications}}

This code produces the following:


Click this link to go to

SoftRedirect.pngModifications

on Grand Theft Mods.



If the destination page on the other wiki has the same name as the page being redirected, the page name can be omitted. For example:

{{softredirect|gtm}}

This code produces the following:


Click this link to go to

SoftRedirect.pngModifications

on Grand Theft Mods.



If you're using this template to link to a wiki besides IGWN or GTM, a third parameter can be added to manually specify the name of the wiki. For example:

{{softredirect|wp|Mod (video gaming)|Wikipedia}}

That code will produce a link to Mod (video gaming on Wikipedia (because wp is the interwiki code used for Wikipedia). The thrd parameter, "Wikipedia", is used to provide the name of the wiki. This code will produce the following:


Click this link to go to

SoftRedirect.pngMod (video gaming)

on Wikipedia.
