Editors can experiment with this template's sandbox and test case pages.

It provides a more modern version of the "external links" section. It is also used as a shortcut to reduce source code clutter and use in an easier way.


Content: Upload the ExternalLinksIcon.png sprite.

CSS: Add the following CSS in your wiki's Common.css page.

.external-links-icon > figure.article-thumb.tright > img.thumbimage {
    user-drag: none;
    user-select: none;
    -moz-user-select: none;
    -webkit-user-drag: none;
    -webkit-user-select: none;
    -ms-user-select: none;
    float: right;
ul.external-links-list > li > a:hover {
    text-decoration: none;

And this in your wiki's Monobook.css page.

.external-links-icon > figure > img {
    margin-left: 40px;
    margin-top: -22px;
    border: none !important;
