Template:Link allows the text used for a link to be independent of the linked site. This is useful for template authors who wish to allow both external and internal links while still providing the displayed text used in the template.

The flexibility provided by this template is usually not necessary, so avoid using it if the customization is not needed. Prefer direct links which are much cleaner, such as [{{{1}}} A link to the first parameter] or [[{{{1}}}|the first parameter]].

To use this template as a template author, you should pass it both a url parameter and a page parameters: {{link|Agenda|url={{{agenda_url}}|page={{{agenda_page}}}}}. Template users should only provide one or the other - specifically agenda_url= or agenda_page=Marketing_meetings#Agenda.
