ଛାଞ୍ଚ:IMDb character/doc


This is a template to generate links to Internet Movie Database, used exclusively for CHARACTERS.

To link a movie, use {{IMDb title}} instead.
To link a person (actor, actress, etc.), use {{IMDb name}} instead.
To link a tv episode, use {{IMDb episode}} instead.
To link a company, use {{IMDb company}} instead.


The required parameter is just the ID number (for backward compatibility, the parameter can be named id) and the template then uses the article title as the anchor text:

* {{IMDb character|ID}}

To have the link text be other than the article name, use second parameter (for backward compatibility, it can be named name):

* {{IMDb character|ID|Character}}

Note that the options include the "*" for a bulleted list since this is most likely to be used in an "External links" section.
