Battlestar Wiki has related sites for non-encyclopedic content. Linking to these sites can be done easily by using interwiki links. For example, you can link to the "Dog" article on Wikipedia using:

[[w:Dog]]

In this case, w: is the interwiki prefix associated with Wikipedia. A list of all interwiki prefixes can be found here.

When using interlanguage links, beware of the difference between:

[[de:Hauptseite]]
  • Means the German version of this article can be found at de:Hauptseite
  • Link does not appear in the article text, but in the "In other languages" section of the sidebar
[[:de:Hauptseite]]

These types of links still support piping as shown in the previous tutorial page.
