This template is designed to replace the classical list-item marker of an interlanguage link (square) by a gold star (Monobook-bullet-star.png) in order to indicate the article of this Wikipedia’s language edition was promoted to the Featured Article status (for more details about these articles and the criteria associated to their status, see Wikipedia:Featured articles in other languages).


To use this template, add {{Link FA|xx}}, where xx is the language code of the Wikipedia on which it has been featured. This template doesn't replace the classical interwiki, you have to use them both to get an interlanguage link with a gold star.


Suppose Flimble is a featured article on the German Wikipedia. Then before the list of interlanguage links ([[de:Flimble]]), simply add {{Link FA|de}} in the wikitext. If you're using the monobook skin, the star will appear next to the de: link.


It works by creating an invisible span with id=interwiki-lang-fa where lang is a specific language code. Function LinkFA() in Mediawiki:Common.js recognizes this invisible span and adds a special FA class to the corresponding interwiki link. All interwiki links with FA class are given a special bullet Monobook-bullet-star.png with CSS rule in Mediawiki:Monobook.css.

The star is displayed only if the skin used is MonoBook (default).

From another language edition

Many other language editions also have their equivalent template. So after an article has become featured on the English Wikipedia, you can add a starred link in the other language projects by using these tags in the respective wikis:

This cute trick was shamelessly stolen from the French Wikipedia; it is also used on the Italian wikipedia.
