Technical Restrictions

While the artist, album and song (and corresponding romanized) parameters are used for external rather than internal links and therefore don't have to follow LyricWiki's page naming policy, several characters (or combinations of characters) cause problems.

  1. Pipe characters "|" cannot be used directly in template parameters, but can be substituted with {{!}}.
  2. A closing square bracket "]" inside the name will cause all following characters to be omitted from the search links, possibly making them meaningless. The easiest solution is to use round brackets instead. A "]" at the end of the name produces a working link, but messes up the display text slightly.
  3. Any HTML or Wiki markup will be interpreted as such, usually producing undesired results.
