Search Appropedia with Google

Template documentation[edit source]

Usage[edit source]

Creates a Google custom search link, which searches Appropedia. This template takes two unnamed input parameters; both are optional:

  1. Your search term(s) (optional.) If this parameter is empty, clicking on the resulting link generates a Google search form with an initially blank input field, ready to search Appropedia.
  2. Link text to display on your wiki page (optional). If this parameter is empty, the template displays a link, with the link text:
    • If you specified a search string:
      • Search Appropedia with Google for: search string
    • If you did not specify a search string:
      • Search Appropedia with Google

This template is useful for searching Appropedia with Google, using a simpler syntax than other analogous methods for searching Wikipedia in wikipedia:Help:Search#Google and wikipedia:Wikipedia:Searching#Google.

Examples[edit source]

{{Google Appropedia||}} Search Appropedia with Google Blank form to search Appropedia

Lineage[edit source]

This template is a cut-down instance of the more general {{Google custom}} template. You may wish to make similar templates if you need to create repetitive links to other portions of Appropedia that {{Google custom}} can search. This saves much typing compared to using {{Google custom}} for each link.
