It is easy to create links in a wiki. By clicking the edit tab, at the top of the page, you can edit the page content. Content is 'marked up' using wiki code. This allows us to quickly create dynamic content, including links.

Goal Markup Syntax Result
Link to another wiki page - just surround the page name by double brackets [[pagename]] pagename
Link to another wiki page, but use text other than the page name - follow the page name with the text that will be seen [[pagename|text]] text
Link to a category page - requires use of a colon before the category name [[:category:name]] category:name
Link to another webpage
Link to another page using text - surround with single brackets, and include the text after a space [ text] text

Before you link to another page outside the wiki, please consider if it is a stable link!
