WackoWiki: Links

https://wackowiki.org/doc     Version: 14.10.2021 09:51
As character markup for creating links, you can use round ((, )) or square [[, ]] brackets. Both characters are equal. Square brackets can be useful if the page text already contains simple round brackets, which may be mistakenly considered markup.

Notes
  1. For internal links, relative or absolute addressing[link9] can be used.
  2. Mixed case words (LikeThis) do not need to be enclosed in brackets. For internal links (inside this Wiki), the complete URL should not be written (otherwise the link will not work). Add "http://" only for external links.
  3. To prevent a WordLikeThis from becoming a link, place a ~ (tilde) in front of it.
  4. How do you use a link to a local file with spaces in it? (e.g.: S:\Network Drive\File 1.txt or //server1\file name.txt)
    To link to local files on a server with spaces like that, use file:/// and switch all backslashes to forward slashes. Also, replace any spaces with %20, so your link would become file://///server1/file%20name.txt Also, there is an issue with linking to local files on Firefox: Solution[link10]
  5. To resize and align images from external sources you can use the following syntax: ((http://example.com/image.png width=500 align=center)), available parameters width, height and align=[left, center, right].
