Help:Links

From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Links can be used on Destinypedia to, as their name suggests, link to other pages. There are both external (outside of wiki) and internal (inside wiki) links.

Internal Links[edit]

To do an internal link, you simply put the name of the page inside of two pairs of brackets. For example, to link to the article about Bungie, you do the following: [[Bungie]], and you get: Bungie.

Inter-wiki Links[edit]

Interwiki links link from one wiki to another. For instance, to link to the Mario Wiki article on the Wii from Destinypedia, you do: [[mariowiki:Wii]], and you get: mariowiki:Wii. To link to another wiki instead of the Mario Wiki, simply replace "mariowiki" with another interwiki code from this list. To link to a Wikia site, use [[w:c:subdomain:Article]] where the subdomain is what appears before .wikia.com in the URL. For example, w:c:wii:Nintendo links to the Nintendo article on the Wii Wiki.

External Links[edit]

To make an external link, you copy the address of the web page you want to make a link to, and put it inside one pair of brackets. Example: [http://www.destinypedia.com/Main_Page] makes [1], which sends you to the main page of Destinypedia.

If you want to make a link to a page on [www.wikipedia.org Wikipedia], you do [[wikipedia:Destiny (video game)]]. This will appear as wikipedia:Destiny (video game).

Customizing Links[edit]

As you may have noticed, regular links look rather bland and unattractive. But it doesn't have to be that way. To learn more, read on. NOTE: a certain amount of HTML knowledge may be necessary to garner the desired results.

Internal Links[edit]

To change the appearance of an internal link, just put a pipe (|) after the link, and then use HTML or wiki formatting to alter to your preference. Example:
Before: [[Main Page]] -- Main Page
After: [[Main Page|Our homepage]] -- Our homepage

Inter-wiki Links[edit]

To customize inter-wiki links, use the same process as the one for internal links; putting a pipe after the link, and then how you want the link to appear afterwards.

External Links[edit]

For external links, no divider is necessary, simply a space after the link, and then the desired HTML, etc.
