To add a link to another wiki page, type [[, then the page name, then ]].

[[Main Page]]

Main Page

If you want to link to the page but don't want to type in the exact name of the page, add a | between the page name and the ]], and then write what you want the text to be.

[[Help Talk:Contents|The discussion page]]

The discussion page

To link to a page on Wikipedia, add Wikipedia: to your page name.

[[Wikipedia:Amnesia:_The_Dark_Descent|Amnesia: The Dark Descent on Wikipedia]]

Amnesia: The Dark Descent on Wikipedia

To link to somewhere outside of the wiki, type [, then the URL, followed by a space, the text you want to describe the link, and then ].

[ External link to Google]

External link to Google

You can also just directly paste in a URL, but it doesn't look as nice

A URL pointing to an image will display that image on a page. It won't have the best formatting however. Exercise caution when doing this and note that images from another website may change or disappear at any time.

Icon tip.png Tip: You normally only need to link a term the first time it is mentioned in an article, but if the separate mentions are far apart you might want to link it more than once.

Red (broken) links

It's O.K. to link to a non-existent page! We would prefer that you then created that page, if you know about it. What we don't want is a page that's just "todo: make this page".

If you've created a page and pre-existing links to it still show as red, add ?action=purge to the end of the URLs to update their link colors. You can also do this by pressing the Edit button on the pages and saving them without changing anything.

Note icon.png Broken links are only detected for wiki pages, not external or Wikipedia links.

Links that link to their own pages (excluding ones redirecting to other sections) will appear to be bold.
