This is a template to generate links to Mises.org, used exclusively for the Circle Bastiat Blog articles. It returns the preferred format for linking to Circle Bastiat in the "Links" section of Mises Wiki articles.

For the template linking to the old official Mises Blog, see Template:Mises blog.




Currently all parameters are required

* {{mb|ID |Title |Author |Date}}
* {{mb| id = ID | Circle Bastiat article title = Title | author name = Author | date = Date}}

Detailed instructions

  1. Copy and paste the syntax above into the Mises Wiki article
  2. Go to http://Mises.org and search for the Circle Bastiat blog article you want (say, "Paul vs. Paul: the Video"; you'll see a list of all parts of the site that point to that title.)
  3. Hover your mouse pointer over the hyperlinks and find the one that has "bastiat.mises.org/" in the URL: http://bastiat.mises.org/2012/04/paul-vs-paul-the-video/
  4. Once you find that page, you'll need to copy the string that comes after ".org/".
  5. You can click that link and go to the page and and copy the number from the address bar in your browser, or alternatively you can right-click (or ctrl+click on a Mac) on the hyperlink and "Copy link location" to your clipboard.
  6. Copy only that string (here, we're using "2012/04/paul-vs-paul-the-video/")
  7. Replace "ID" with the string and "Title" with "Paul vs. Paul: the Video" (note: there is no need for the quotes) and "Author" with Daniel J. Sanchez (note: you can hyperlink this part, preferably to the Mises Wiki article for the author) and "Date with April 2012"
    * {{cb|2012/04/paul-vs-paul-the-video/|Paul vs. Paul: the Video|Daniel J. Sanchez|April 2012}} results in:

If you still have any doubts or questions about the use of the template, you can ask at User talk:Pestergaines (or User talk:John James).

Future development

  • Allow for only three parameters (ID, Title, Date) for sections with many articles by the same author, like here.
