    Links should clearly be identifiable as links to readers.
    Refrain from implementing colored links that may impede user ability to distinguish links from regular text, or color links for purely aesthetic reasons. See the guides to editing articles for accessibility at contrast, accessibility and navbox colors.

    Purpose[edit source]

    {{ Font color }} is how you insert colorized text, such as red, orange, green, blue and indigo, and many others. You can specify its background color at the same time.

    {{ Font color }} is also how you can color wikilinks to something other than blue for when you need to work within background colors. Normally [[ wikilink ]]wikilink, but here we use a {{ font color }} with |link = to create a black wikilink →    wikilink    You can make any text link to any page using the |link= parameter.

    This template will use Wikipedia:HTML5 recommendations, inserting the span tags <span style="color:color">...</span> and <span style="background-color:color">...</span>, so the page increases its readability and usability in both the wikitext and the rendered page.

    Usage[edit source]

    {{Font color}} has a one-color and a two-color form:

    {{font color | color | text }}
    {{font color | text color | background color | text }}.

    Either form has a |link= option, for colorizing (otherwise blue or red) wikilink text.

    |link=yes[[text]]
    |link=fullpagename[[fullpagename]]

    You can also name the other fields.

    {{font color | fg=color | text=text }}
    {{font color | fg=text color | bg=background color | text=text }}

    You can name |fg= or |bg=, which is nice, but... if you name either of them, you must also name |text=, which is a compromise. (See Help:Template#Parameters for why.)

    Spacing is of no concern.

    .{{font color|tan|green|text with four words}}..text with four words.
    . {{font color|tan|green|text with four words}} .. text with four words .
    . {{ font color | tan | green | text with four words }} .. text with four words .

    Parameters[edit source]

    Use / description Default value
    {{{1}}} text color inherited
    {{{2}}} text
    link =yes or =fullpagename
    Or
    Use / description Default value
    {{{1}}} text color inherited
    {{{2}}} background color inherited
    {{{3}}} text
    link =yes or =fullpagename

    Examples[edit source]

    Markup Renders as
    {{ font color | green | green text }} green text
    {{ font color | blue | do not style text as a link }} do not style text as a link
    {{ font color || yellow | default text in yellow background }} default text in yellow background
    {{ font color | bg=yellow | text = default text in yellow background }} default text in yellow background
    {{ font color | white | black | white with black background }} white with black background
    {{ font color | #ffffff | #000000 | white with black background }} ([[hexadecimal colors]]) white with black background (hexadecimal colors)
    Markup Renders as
    {{ font color | white | blue | Wikipedia:Example | link = yes }} Wikipedia:Example
    {{ font color | white | blue | Wikipedia:Example | link = Wikipedia:Sandbox }} Wikipedia:Example
    {{ font color | text = Wikipedia:Example | link = Wikipedia:Sandbox | bg = blue | fg = white }} Wikipedia:Example

    The |link= parameter is a good way to colorize wikilinks, and it is about as much typing as the pipe trick.

    Although a wikilink accepts a font color (or other template or markup):

    [[Wikipedia:Example|{{font color|white|blue|the Wikipedia:Example page}}]]
    the Wikipedia:Example page (a font-colored link),

    a font color does not accept a wikilink, it creates wikilinks itself with |link=.
