Using WikiSyntax, you can create links to other pages without having to know HTML. You can use three types of links in a Wiki page (as well as other contexts that accept WikiSyntax, including articles, blogs, comments, and forums):
- Links to Wiki pages
- Links to external Wiki pages
- Links to Web pages
For each type of link, you can choose whether to display a description. If you provide a description, the page will display the description (not the link address) as a clickable hyperlink.
For detailed, step-by-step instructions, see WikiLinkingDoc.
|Link to a Wiki page||WikiPageName or ((Wiki Page Name))|
|Link to an external Wiki page||External Wiki name: External Wiki page name|
|Link to a Web page||[http://www.somesite.org] or [http://www.somesite.org| Some Site!]|
Note: Tiki's linking capabilities are affected by the following administrative options:
- Use ))WikiWords(( If this feature in the Wiki Features area (Wiki tab) is disabled, you must use doubled parentheses to create a Wiki page link.
- Open External Links in New Window If this feature in the General Settings area (General tab) is disabled, external links open in the existing browser window
- Enables users to easily create links to Wiki, external Wiki, and Web pages without the need to use HTML.
- Displays links with or without link text.
- Caches external Web pages (if the appropriate configuration option is selected).
- Enables users to suppress remote document caching for non-HTML objects.
- External pages can open in the same or a new browser window (there's an administrative option that controls this behavior).
