Template:Cite web archived

From DoomWiki.org

Template for replacing an instance of {{Cite web}} in-place semantically with an archived link. The original URL is maintained in the wiki markup, and the archived URL is provided as a new template argument. This makes it simple to reverse the operation if the site later comes back online or can be replaced with a copy from another location.
