Interwiki links[edit]

The following interwiki links allow links as well:

[[IMDbName:Name id]] 
e.g. IMDbName:0000197 (Jack Nicholson)
[[IMDbTitle:Title id]]
e.g. IMDbTitle:0094721 (Beetle Juice)
[[IMDbCompany:Company id]]
e.g. IMDbCompany:0005073 (Universal Pictures)
[[IMDbCharacter:Character id]]
e.g. IMDbCharacter:0002425 (Austin Powers)

See meta:Interwiki map.

IMDb external link icon[edit]

If you have a browser that shows the external link icon (External.png) then you can set any IMDb links to show its own icon (IMDb external.png)

See also m:Help:User style for more info on CSS selectors.

Edit your monobook.css and add:

#bodyContent a.extiw[href ^=""],
#bodyContent a.external[href *=""],
#bodyContent a.external[href *=""] {
        background: url( center right no-repeat;
        padding-right: 13px;

Once you save the page, you may need to hold Shift and click Reload.

If you do not want interwiki links to show the icon, eliminate the a.extiw entry

Please see help on m:Help:User style
