Inter-Wiki Link Rules (or Links to other Sites)

10 Dec 2010 - 14:02 | Version 1 |

This topic lists all aliases needed to map inter-wiki links to external wikis/sites.

Whenever you write ExternalSite:Page it will be linked automatically to the page on the external site. The link points to the URL corresponding to the ExternalSite alias below, concatenated to the Page you choose. Example: Type Wiki:RecentChanges to get Wiki:RecentChanges, the RecentChanges page at the original Wiki site.

ALERT! Note: This topic needs to be visible for all users, or the plugin will not work correctly.

How to define Inter-Wiki Links

  • Inter-wike links are defined in the tables below.
  • Each entry must be of format:
    | External site alias | URL | Tooltip help text |.
  • The Alias must start with an upper case letter and may contain alphanumeric letters.
  • The URL and Tooltip Text may contain optional $page formatting tokens; the token gets expanded to the page name.
  • The Tooltip Text must not contain:
    • any HTML tags (including <nop> escape code),
    • any internal WikiWord links
    • any external links.
    • Hint: Escape 'WikiWords' and '$page'.

Adding your own Inter-Wiki Links

Rather than adding your own inter-wiki links to this topic, the recommended approach is to create a topic in your Users Web, for example InterWikis. You can then set the INTERWIKIPLUGIN_RULESTOPIC preference setting in SitePreferences as follows:


Any inter-wikis you add to InterWikis will then be available in the same way that the inter-wikis from here are. If you create a rule in InterWikis which has the same alias as a rule in this topic, the rule from InterWikis will take preference.
