Wiki Team/Guide/Interwiki Linking

From Sugar Labs
Jump to navigation Jump to search

You can easily create links to other wiki sites for which we have created inter-wiki shortcuts. For example, the prefix :mw: in a wiki link makes it a link to the MediaWiki site rather than this glossary. A simple example of this is:

[[:mw:Help:Editing pages|Editing pages]]

which creates the link "Editing pages". The prefix :m: will create a link to a page on the "meta" site.

Use the prefix :w: to create a link to the Wikipedia, as in


which creates the link "QuarkNet"


The interwiki linking prefixes in use on this site are:
