Differently uses some 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 {{dla|}} links to pages with (Differently) but shows a different text in the link. For example, {{dla|Italy|Kingdom of Italy}} links to the page Italy (Differently), but shows Kingdom of Italy instead, in the same way [[Italy (Differently)|Kingdom of Italy]] would do.

The template {{df|}} links to countries with a flag miniature on the left. For example, {{df|Byzantium}} generates Flag of Byzantium (with B).png Byzantium.

The template {{dfa|}} links to countries with a flag miniature on the left but shows a different text in the link. For example {{dfa|Byzantium|Constantinople}} generates Flag of Byzantium (with B).png Constantinople.
