Chang at, the official Star Trek website

If other link text is desired, such as "General Chang", the following format should be used:

{{|chang-general|General Chang}}

This would produce:

General Chang at, the official Star Trek website

A third parameter can be passed to change the path from the standard "database_article" path used on for links to interviews or other such articles:

{{|catching-up-with-star-trek-writer-mike-sussman|Interview with Mike Sussman|article}}

This would produce:

Interview with Mike Sussman at, the official Star Trek website
