0 miles 0 chains (0 km)

[edit] [history] [purge] 50px Template documentation

Converts distances measured in miles and chains to kilometres, linking to chain (length) without linking miles. This is to conform to WP:OVERLINK, which states that common units of length should not be linked. However, chains are not familiar to many readers, and therefore a link is provided.

This template is designed to mimic the function of the {{convert}} template, which is currently unable to make selective links.


Note that the parameters mi, chain and km are redundant in this template, but are provided to make conversion to the {{convert}} template easier if selective linking is ever implemented.
