Documentation

This template is used for creating links to download pages of mods, utilities, and other resources at particular sites (with a mouse-over tooltip showing where you'll be downloading from), for use in mod and utility testing lists. The supported options are detailed below. Feel free to add more (should be multi-author sites), or to correct the URL coding if a site changes its structure, or to remove one if a site sadly goes down permanently. Various mod archives are already gone: PlanetElderScrolls.GameSpy.com, ElricM.com, the archive part of Rethan-Manor.net, Morrowind.UFRealms.net, GHFMod.us, and many more.

This template is for downloads of mods and utilities, not for all external links.

Usage

Example mod-testing list entry with the template used to provide two offsite download-page links:

* ''Better Clothes'' 1.1 by Psychodog Studios {{dlmod|mmh|21-14097}}{{dlmod|nexus|42262}} – <strong>Working, and highly recommended.</strong> Detailed and more natural-looking replacements for almost all the vanilla clothing in the game.

Renders as:

  • Better Clothes 1.1 by Psychodog Studios MN  – Working, and highly recommended. Detailed and more natural-looking replacements for almost all the vanilla clothing in the game.

Note that the back-to-back instances of {{dlmod}} need not be separated by a space; a thin space is included in the template's code to keep the link icon of the first instance from butting up against the link letter of the second.
