Link to the former DMOZ categories and profiles.

(AOL took DMOZ offline on March 14, 2017. This template maps to Curlie.org, a directory based on DMOZ, and maintained by the same editor community.)


This template has two distinct formats for linking to DMOZ categories and DMOZ profiles.


To link to a category, give the path to the category as the first parameter, and an optional name as the second parameter. If no name is provided, the template will use the name of the page.

{{Curlie|Path_to/Category|Category's name}}

Make sure to remove the Curlie.org domain name and any leading or trailing slashes from the path; these will be provided by the template. For instance, the URI for Abraham Lincoln's Curlie category is:


so the path should be given as:



Markup Renders as
 |Society/History/By_Region/North_America/United_States/Presidents/Lincoln,_Abraham | Abraham Lincoln}}

Any content in the article namespace which transcludes this template will be added to the tracking category Articles with Curlie links. Link checkers from both projects can ensure that these links work properly and reduce redundancy in our external links sections.


To link to profile rather than a category, include |user as a third parameter.

{{Curlie|Your username|Your name|user}}


Markup Renders as
{{Curlie|skrenta|Rich Skrenta|user}}
