Adding or Removing Links to Other Pages

The editing toolbar allows you to easily add links to wiki pages, web pages, and email addresses.

After you link to a page, if that page's URL changes, the link to the page doesn't change with it.

To create a wiki page and link to it:

  1. While editing a page, either select text that you want to link to the new page, or position the insertion point where you'd like to add the link.

    If you select text, the selected text becomes the default name of the new page. If you don't select text, the link to the page shows the page name.

  2. Click the Create Link (curved arrow) button and then choose New Page.

  3. Enter the name of the new page and click Create.

The new page is created with placeholder text. While viewing the page that has the link, click the link to view.

To link to an existing wiki page on the same wiki:

  1. While editing a page, either select text that you want to link to the page, or position the insertion point where you'd like to add the link.

    If you don't select text, the link to the page shows the page name.

  2. Click the Create Link (curved arrow) button.

  3. If the name of the page that you want to link to is located under the divider, choose it to create the link.

    The pages you've most recently edited are listed under the divider.

  4. If the name of the page isn't listed under the divider, choose Search, then, in the search field, enter text found in the page's title or body.

  5. When you find the page, select it and click Link.
