Help:Links

From The Work of God's Children
Jump to: navigation, search

There are four types of links:

  1. internal links to other pages in this site
  2. external links to websites
  3. inter-language links to other language versions of the same site

To add an internal link, enclose the name of the page you want to link to in double square brackets. When you save the page, you'll see the new link pointing to your page. If the page exists already, it is displayed in blue, empty pages are displayed in red. Selflinks to the current page are not transformed in URLs but displayed in bold.

The first letter of the target page is automatically capitalized and spaces are represented as underscores (typing an underscore in the link will have a similar effect as typing a space, but is not recommended, since the underscore will also be shown in the text).

How to avoid auto-links

By default, when you write a URL as is, it will be transformed to an external link.

To avoid that effect, put the URL between <nowiki> start & end tags as in:

<nowiki>http://theworkofgodschildren.org</nowiki>
