I've searched on here but came up empty. Can anyone tell me how to link in a FR wiki article to a page on Wikipedia? Thanks for any help.

There are 3 different templates that do different things. {{Wikipedia}}, {{Wikipedia article}}, and {{Wikipedia external link}}. I've been using the last one in the "External Links" section of the appendix. Just add an argument that is the title of the Wikipedia article like {{Wikipedia external link|Orc}}

Hmm, what I'm trying to do for my Almari bint-Kafira article is link to wikipedia to their article on sambuks, which are a type of ship ... but I want the link to appear like regular FR Wiki links in article so it would read sambuks.

In that case, you do it like this: [[wikipedia:en:sambuk|sambuk]] which should make a link like sambuk.
