{{Warning|1={{big|'''Links should clearly be identifiable as links to readers'''.}}<br />Refrain from implementing colored links that may impede user ability to distinguish links from regular text, or color links for purely aesthetic reasons.

<!-- PLEASE ADD CATEGORIES AND INTERWIKIS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE -->
 
 
 
== Purpose ==
 
{{tl | Font color }} is how you insert colorized text, such as
 
{{ font color | red | red }},
 
{{ font color | orange | orange }},
 
{{ font color | green | green }},
 
{{ font color | blue | blue | link = cat }} and
 
{{ font color | indigo | indigo }},
 
and [[Help:Color#Color generation guide|many others]].
 
You can specify its {{ font color | bg=yellow | fg=indigo | text=background }} color at the same time.
 
 
 
{{tl | Font color }} is also how you can color wikilinks
 
to something other than blue for when you need to work within background colors.
 
Normally <kbd>[<nowiki/>[ wikilink ]]</kbd> &rarr; [[wikilink]],
 
but here we use a {{tl | font color }} with {{para | link }} to create a black wikilink &rarr;
 
{{ font color | black | violet | link=yes | &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;wikilink&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; }}
 
You can make any text link to any page using the {{para|link}} parameter.
 
 
 
This template will use the latest [[Wikipedia:HTML5]] recommendations,
 
inserting the span tags
 
{{tag|span|params=style=color:''color''}} and
 
{{tag|span|params=style=background-color:''color''}} for you, so your page increases its readability and usability in both the wikitext and the rendered page.
 
 
 
== Usage ==
 
 
 
{{tlf | Font color }} has a one-color and a two-color form:
 
: <kbd>{<nowiki/>{font color | ''color'' | ''text'' }}</kbd>
 
: <kbd>{<nowiki/>{font color | ''text color'' | ''background color'' | ''text'' }}</kbd>.
 
 
 
Either form has a <kbd>|link=</kbd> option, for colorizing (otherwise blue or red) wikilink text.
 
: <kbd>|link{{=}}yes</kbd> &rarr; <code>[<nowiki/>[''text'']]</code>
 
: <kbd>|link=''[[wp:pgn|fullpagename]]''</kbd> &rarr; <code>[<nowiki/>[''fullpagename'']]</code>
 
 
 
You can also name the other fields.
 
: <kbd>{<nowiki/>{font color | fg=''color'' | text=''text'' }}</kbd>
 
: <kbd>{<nowiki/>{font color | fg=''text color'' | bg=''background color'' | text=''text'' }}</kbd>
 
You can name <kbd>|fg=</kbd> or <kbd>|bg=</kbd>, which is nice, but...
 
if you name either of them, you must also name <kbd>|text=</kbd>, which is a compromise.
 
(See [[Help:Template#Parameters]] for why.)
 
 
 
Spacing is of no concern.
 
:<code>.</code><kbd>{<nowiki/>{font color|tan|green|text with four words}}</kbd><code>.</code> &rarr; <code>.</code>{{font color|tan|green|text with four words }}<code>.</code>
 
:<code>.</code><kbd> {<nowiki/>{font color|tan|green|text with four words}} </kbd><code>.</code> &rarr; <code>.</code> {{font color|tan|green|text with four words }} <code>.</code>
 
:<code>.</code><kbd> {<nowiki/>{ font color  |  tan  |  green  | text with four words  }} </kbd><code>.</code> &rarr;  <code>.</code> {{ font color  |  tan  |  green  |  text    with    four    words }} <code>.</code>

|}
 
 
 
The {{para|link}} parameter is a good way to colorize wikilinks,
 
and it is about as much typing as the [[wp:pipe trick|pipe trick]].
 
 
 
Although a wikilink accepts a ''font color'' (or other template or markup):
 
:<code>{{big|[<nowiki/>[}}Wikipedia:Example{{big|{{!}}}}{<nowiki />{font color|white|blue|the Wikipedia:Example page}}{{big|]]}}</code>
 
:&rarr; [[Wikipedia:Example | {{ font color | white | blue | the Wikipedia:Example page}}]] (a font-colored link),
 
a ''font color'' does not accept a wikilink, it creates wikilinks itself with {{para|link}}.
 
*{{OK }} {<nowiki/>{ font color | green | violet | Wikipedia:Example | link=yes }} &rarr; {{ font color | green | violet | Wikipedia:Example | link=yes }} (a {{para|link}} {{tl | font color }})
 
*{{cross }}{<nowiki/>{ font color | green | violet | the [<nowiki/>[Wikipedia:Example]] page}} &rarr; {{ font color | green | violet | the [[Wikipedia:Example]] page }} (Text with [<nowiki/>[wikilink brackets]] overrides the designated color)
 
*{{cross }}{<nowiki/>{ font color | green | violet | [<nowiki/>[Wikipedia:Exammple]] }} &rarr; {{ font color | green | violet | the [[Wikipedia:Exammple]] page }} (Text with [<nowiki/>[wikilink brackets]] overrides the designated color)
