Linking to another wiki page

To link to another page in the THCC wiki put two square brackets around the page name.

  • For example, [[FAQ]] will change the word FAQ into a link to the FAQ page: FAQ.

If you want the link to be different to the page name then follow the page name with a bar symbol and then the text that should be displayed.

  • For example, [[FAQ|Frequently asked questions]] will create a link to the FAQ page but display this link spelled out in full: Frequently asked questions.

Linking to external web pages

To link to a web page outside this wiki, put one square bracket around the page address (URL) or just leave the URL alone.

  • For example, [http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/] produces a simple link like this [1].

Again, if you want the link to be some specific text, rather than the URL itself, use brackets, follow the URL with a space and then the text that should be displayed.

  • For example, [http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/ UK Rivers Guide Book] produces UK Rivers Guide Book.
