There are four kinds of links on WikiLou:

  • Internal links to other pages on WikiLou
  • Piped links to change the name of a link
  • External links to other websites
  • InterWiki links to Wikipedia

To add an internal link, enclose the name of the page you want to link to in double square brackets. When you save the page, you'll see the new link pointing to the linked page. If the page exists already, it is displayed in blue, empty pages are displayed in red. Links that go to the current page are not transformed in URLs but displayed in bold.

The first letter of the target page is automatically capitalized. Typing an underscore in the link has the same effect as typing a space, but is not recommended).
