Wiki recognizes two different kinds of links. Both are identified by enclosing text within square brackets.
Note: The examples below show spaces around square brackets for clarity. Do not include those spaces.
A link to another federated wiki page can be created by typing the page name inside double square brackets. It is common practice to use title case conventions when naming pages.
[ [ Page Title ] ]
Internal links are special in several ways. This special behavior is what makes a site a wiki rather than just another website.
When clicked, an internal wiki link will open the named page. Usually it opens beside the referring page. A Shift-Click will add the new page to the far right of all already opened pages.
If an internal link names a page that is not present in the Site of Origin then wiki looks for clues as to where else to look. When you hover over a link you can see the list of clues that wiki has found.
Some wikis would show an internal link to an absent page as a Red Link or some other specialized notation. Federated wiki does not make this distinction.
A link to an ordinary web page is created by enclosing the page URL and descriptive text inside single square brackets.

When clicked, an external link will open the linked page in a new browser tab or possibly a new browser window.
We suggest some conventions for external links that make them more understandable for reader and reusable for authors. See External Links
