You cannot use HTML anchor tags to create hyperlinks, but you don't need to. In fact, just typing a URL will make it an active external link in the text. For example: http://www.cern.ch produces a link to CERN.

There are two general types of links, internal links to an article (page) in this wiki, or external links to some other web site.


Internal Links

Internal links are links to an article or section in an article in the same wiki:

Link type You type: You get:
Internal link ...this leads to the need for a [[Wiki Team]] ...this leads to the need for a Wiki Team
Internal link with alternate link text ...which leads to the need for a [[Wiki Team|WT]] ...this leads to the need for a WT
Link to section of an article ...as described in [[Wiki Team/Guide/Formatting#Code Examples|the "code examples" section of the "Formatting" help page]] ...as described in the "code examples" section of the "Formatting" help page


External Links

External links are links to some other web site:

Link type You type: You get:
