Adding Links to Wiki
An internal link is an inter-wiki link, or a link made to a new or exisiting page within a wiki.
To create a link to an existing page within the IMAG wiki, the name of the page you would like to link to must be placed between two brackets.
For example, if I would like to link to the IMAG/MSM Events page, the following text must be inserted:
Which will result in the following:
In some cases, you may want to link to a page but reference it using different text.
In order to access the IMAG/MSM Events page on this wiki, please click [[IMAG/MSM Events|here]].
Which appears as:
In order to access the IMAG/MSM Events page on this wiki, please click here.
Careful: If the internal wiki link you create is red in the preview pane, this indicates the page you are linking to does not exist. If you intend to create a new page follow the red link to the new page and begin adding text. If you are pointing to an existing page, double check the spelling of the page name. It should be noted that the Wiki page names are case-sensitive. When creating a new page, the title should be specific. For example, instead of "Meeting Minutes", the title should be Working "Group A January 10, 2012 Meeting Minutes"
Links to pages outside of the wiki can be created in several different ways:
- Single brackets and no separator are used to create a link to a page outside the wiki. For example, a link to the NIH homepage can be created usiing the text:
[http://www.nih.gov/ NIH Homepage]
Appears as: NIH Homepage
- You can also simply write the text:
Appears as: http://www.nih.gov/
