General Description

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.

Quick Reference

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
