Explanation[]

  • Level 1: check for archivedate
    • if archivedate is provided, render link to IA using the URL and the timestamp
    • if archivedate is not provided, proceed to Level 2: check for archiveurl
      • if archiveurl is provided, render link to archive
      • if archiveurl is not provided, proceed to Level 3: check for nobackup
        • if nobackup is provided, render (backup link not available)
        • if nobackup is not provided, render (backup link not verified!), and proceed to Level 4:
          • if {{NAMESPACE}} is empty (if we're in mainspace), add maintenance category
          • if {{NAMESPACE}} is not empty, proceed to Level 5:
            • if {{NAMESPACE}} equals "File", add maintenance category
            • if {{NAMESPACE}} does not equal "File", do nothing
