When a page is used in a way that does not automatically show up in the page's Special:WhatLinkshere, use this template to create an invisible link to the used page. This happens, for example, when a template is used on a page as an editintro or preload, or when a category is specified in a dynamic page list.

Specify the name of the used page as an unnamed parameter; if the parameter is omitted, a very visible error message is generated.

Don't use this to mark a page dependency in a javascript or Lua page; instead, just provide a comment linking to the page depended upon.

If optional parameter show is non-blank, the link is visible rather than hidden; this may aid in debugging.

Note that {{dialog/button}} automatically creates a hidden link to its target action, without use of this template.
