Links to Wikidata[]

(copied from my talk page ---- Robin Patterson (Talk) 01:02, February 6, 2018 (UTC) )

Do we have the ability to link to Wikidata entries here at Familypedia. The standard [[d:Q47541736|Alton Verran Evans]] does not appear to work. Since Wikipedia is banning and removing links to Wikidata for people that do not appear with a full article in Wikipedia. No links to Wikidata for red linked people. --Richard Arthur Norton (talk) 21:12, February 5, 2018 (UTC)

I'm not surprised that "d:" doesn't work here - just as "w:" doesn't go to Wikipedia from here. But I expect Thurstan can add to his impressive list of external link templates to give us an equivalent. -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 01:14, February 6, 2018 (UTC)
Other then {{Wikidata}} as discussed previously? Thurstan (talk) 01:36, February 6, 2018 (UTC)
It did not work at Wikisource until I brought up the issue than it was fixed. I am not aware how they did it but the person said connectivity has to be added manually. --Richard Arthur Norton (talk) 16:15, February 10, 2018 (UTC)
