<languages /> Template:TNT <translate> There are five types of links in MediaWiki:

  1. [[<tvar|internal>#Internal links</>|Internal links]] to other pages in the wiki
  2. [[<tvar|external>#External links</>|External links]] to other websites
  3. [[<tvar|external2>#External links to internal pages</>|External links to internal pages]] in the wiki
  4. [[<tvar|interwiki>#Interwiki links</>|Interwiki links]] to other websites registered to the wiki in advance
  5. [[<tvar|interlang>#Interlanguage links</>|Interlanguage links]] to other websites registered as other language versions of the wiki</translate>


Internal links

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 your page. If the page exists already it is displayed in blue, if it does not, in red. Selflinks to the current page are not transformed in URLs but displayed in bold. (If you really want to link to the current page, use an anchor (see below), or [[#top|current page]] which always links to the top.)

The first letter of the target page is automatically capitalized, unless otherwise set by the admins, and spaces are represented as underscores (typing an underscore in the link will have a similar effect as typing a space, but is not recommended, since the underscore will also be shown in the text).

External links

To add an external link, enclose the URL followed by space and the name of the page you want to link to in single square brackets. When you save the page, you'll see the new link pointing to your page, with an arrow icon after it to show that it was coded with single bracket external link syntax, and thus may lead to another site. </translate>

How to avoid auto-links

When you put a URL on a wiki page it will be automatically converted into an external link, like this: </translate>

<translate> To avoid that effect, put the URL between <tvar|1><nowiki></> tags, like this: </translate>


<translate> To get this:</translate>


Interwiki links

Interwiki links are links with the internal link markup to a website registered in advance. For example, you can link to the article by typing [[wikipedia:Sunflower]], which will result in a link wikipedia:Sunflower. This is because is registered to your wiki by default with the prefix of wikipedia. (This link may not work properly if the admin of your wiki has changed the setting.) Unlike internal links, interwiki links do not use page existence detection, so an interwiki link will appear blue even if the page does not exist on the remote wiki.

Similar to internal page links, you can create piped links, with alternate link label, e.g. [[wikipedia:Sunflower|big yellow flower]] is the link big yellow flower and [[wikipedia:Sunflower|]] is the link Sunflower.

Basically, interwiki links are abbreviations for commonly used longer external links. A very similar link could be created as [ big yellow flower].

More details are at [[<tvar|interwiki>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:Interwiki</>|Manual:Interwiki]] and m:Help:Interwiki linking. See the default interwiki prefixes. To edit the [[<tvar|interwiki-table>Special:MyLanguage/Manual:Interwiki table</>|Manual:Interwiki table]] on your site, see the [[<tvar|ext-interwiki>Special:MyLanguage/Extension:Interwiki</>|Interwiki extension]]. </translate>


Interlanguage links

If your wiki has other language versions, you may find “interlanguage links” in the [[<tvar|sidebar>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Navigation#Sidebar</>|sidebar]], just below [[<tvar|toolbox>Special:MyLanguage/Help:Navigation#Toolbox</>|toolbox]] in the box named “in other languages.”

Interlanguage links behave similarly to interwiki links, except that they are listed in the sidebar. To create an interlanguage link from a page, just type [[language prefix:pagename]] wherever you like in the page; the language prefix is the prefix specified at your wiki for the other language version (typically the ISO 639-1 language code).

If you want to make the interlanguage link appear in the content of the page rather than in the sidebar, you can add a colon before the language prefix:


When a link is both interwiki and interlanguage, the order is wikipedia:en:Sunflower. </translate>
