  • $skin: Skin object rendering the UI

  • $section: The designation of the section being pointed to, to be included in the link, like &section=$section
  • $tooltip: The default tooltip. Escape with htmlspecialchars() before using. By default, this is wrapped in the editsectionhint message. (NOTE: This i18n message is no longer necessary.)

  • $lang: Language code in which the link should be provided.
