Differently uses four templates that facilitate linking to the timeline's pages.

The template {{dl|}} links to pages with (Differently). For example, {{dl|Italy}} links to the page Italy (Differently), hiding the parentheses.

The template {{di|}} links to countries with a flag miniature on the right, but it only works for countries whose flags are the same as in OTL, such as Flag of Spain Spain. If it has a "the" in front of it, such as the Philippines or the Netherlands, use {{dt|}}.

Other examples of usage all three templates are shown below:

Template Code Result
Simple link {{dl|Confederate States}}

{{dl|Olympic Games}}

Confederate States

Olympic Games

Country with flag
(same flag as in OTL)


Flag of France France

Flag of Japan Japan

Country with flag
(same flag as in OTL)


Flag of the Netherlands Netherlands

Flag of the Philippines Philippines

The {{di|}} equivalent for countries whose flags or names are different than in OTL is {{diff|}}, but its usage is a bit more complicated, since it needs to indicate which image it will use. If we were to simplify them, it would be needed to create a specific template for each one, which would saturate this wiki with templates, so simply copy the codes from here:
