Internal Links to other Wiki Articles

Creating links to other Wiki Articles is easy: Just place double brackets around the term(s) you'd like to carry the link like this:

And this is what it looks like:

Note that links to existing pages will appear blueish, while links to non-existing articles will appear in red.

Tip: You can also use the shortcut button to create internal links: Simply highlight the to-be-linked text and press this button: button_link.png. It will automatically be surrounded by double brackets.

External Links to other Web Pages

External links are even easier to create than internal links, just put the URL into your text like this:

http://www.thedarkmod.com

And this is what it looks like:

http://www.thedarkmod.com

The URL of the linked page will go first, everything that is coming afterwards will be considered as description of the link. You can use spaces or whatever you like in your description, even images are allowed. This is an example for an imageshack Link:
