What's the point of this template when we already have {{Template link}}? -- Orthotopetalk 15:11, 6 August 2017 (UTC)

This template doesn't force a link. The advantages of this are:
  1. Linking can be avoided where the link would be excessive or broken.
  2. This template can be used to demonstrate parser function syntax, magic words, and substitution. Of these three, none are currently supported by {{Template link}}, and adding magic word support would be problematic.
An optional parameter to {{Template link}} which would enable it not to link would look weird due to the name of that template. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 16:20, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
Also, the Russian equivalent of {{Template link}} doesn’t feature a white <code> background. — BabylonAS (talk | ru.Wiki Admin) (fka NickTheRed37) 16:47, 6 August 2017 (UTC)
