Dmoz at the Open Directory Project
50px Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


To link to relevant Open Directory Project categories for articles.


|Category Name

For example:


results in:

PlanetSide at the Open Directory Project

The second attribute, "Category Name", is optional. If omitted it will use the name of the Wiki article page.


Include the trailing slash on the category name. Most browsers will still function if the / is excluded, but a nonstandard URL will result.

Although the second attribute is optional, it may be desired when the DMoz category has two or more words. The dmoz template defaults to using Wiki capitalization defaults (only the first word is capitalized), whereas at DMoz, multi-word category names follow more traditional capitalization rules (all words capitalized except connectives). So if "Workers' Compensation" is the text you want users to see, include it as the second attribute. Otherwise, at the Workers' compensation article:

{{dmoz | Society/Law/Legal_Information/Workers%27_Compensation/}}

results in

Workers' compensation at the Open Directory Project
