Note: it seems to me to be appropriate to add the LV template to Wikipedia External Links, but the url must be carefully thought through to include all of the current LV listings (I found 2 LV listings for this poem, which were sourced from 2 different books) without including similarly named but unrelated listings.

Note: I could not establish a link, as we do not have a template for a group/collection. When searching for The Black Cat magazine from home page, it leads to The Black Cat magazine.
https://librivox.org/author/628?primary_key=628&search_category=group&search_page=1&search_form=get_results. But when using code 628 in any template we have at our disposal, 628 leads to Frederic Bastiat author page.

try this for the Librivox page linked to:

It brings up the just the two LV books when used from the LV Home Page.

Grace & Michele,

This belongs more in the Wikipedia discussion thread, but since the topic has come up here I will try to summarize an answer from my readings in the discussion threads.

In the beginning of this effort all links including those to English Wikipedia pages were considered SPAM and frequently deleted. After much discussion between experienced LV volunteers and Wiki volunteers, the English Wikipedia pages were convinced that linking from English Wikipedia pages to Librivox should not generally be considered SPAM (though creators of specific page may disagree and delete the links). Read through the latest discussion thread and you will see some of this. Each language is different and in many languages links from Wikipedia to LV are still considered SPAM. If you create a link on another languages Wikipedia, check back in 2 weeks to see if it is still there.

Grace & Michele,

If you create a link on another languages Wikipedia, check back in 2 weeks to see if it is still there.

Like I said, I am leaving foreign language Wikipedia pages alone for now. They do look and behave different, and we have plenty enough work to keep us busy. Each time we make a link we click a box that says "WATCH THIS PAGE", so I presume if any changes occur we will be notified. And I don't see how it can be considered SPAM for us to enhance the value of Wikipedia to its users. We are partners in the desire to educate, inform and preserve the world's knowledge, all ad free and free of charge.

Some small thing about author links that you may not have noticed: You can leave out all the stuff that comes after the first number in the link.

To use an example from above:
https://librivox.org/author/191?primary_key=191&search_category=author&search_page=1&search_form=get_results

is the same as
https://librivox.org/author/191

Makes for cleaner links that are easier to read by a human if it ever needs checking.
Cheers, Ava.

Thanks Availle. Shorter book links are much easier on the eyes. If you have a similar shortcut for the book links, let me know.
3 author, 4 book links today. Added many projects to the spreadsheet that don't yet have Wikipedia links.

Note: Someone added code that linked directly to the book, not to all iterations of the book. I replaced it with the correct template.
If I knew who posted the original link I could provide them with the correct template, but I don't. So let me direct them to the Wikipedia Links wiki for further instructions on the templates now being used, and post these for comparison.
INCORRECT: * {{librivox book | title=Mildred Keith | author=Martha FINLEY}}
CORRECT: * {{librivox book | title= Mildred's Married Life | author=Martha Finley }}
