Hay cinco tipos de enlaces en MediaWiki:

  1. Enlaces internos a otras páginas en el wiki
  2. Enlaces externos a otros sitios webs
  3. Enlaces externos a páginas internas en el wiki
  4. Enlaces interwikis a otros sitios webs registrados en el wiki por adelantado
  5. Enlaces interidiomas a otros sitios webs registrados como versiones del wiki en otros idiomas

Enlaces internos[edit]

To add an internal link, enclose the name of the page you want to link to in double square brackets. When you save the page, you'll see the new link pointing to your page. If the page exists already the link is displayed in blue; if it does not exist it appears red (unless the color scheme of the wiki has been changed from the default). Links to the current page title ("selflinks") do not result in live links but are displayed in bold. (If you really want to link to the current page, you probably want to link to a specific section or to an anchor; see examples below.)

The first letter of the target page is usually case-insensitive, unless configured otherwise by wiki admins, meaning links can be capitalized or not. The case of every subsequent letter must match exactly. Spaces in the page title may be represented as underscores (i.e., typing an underscore in a link will have the same effect as typing a space), but using underscores in links is not recommended since they will be visible in the page text (this can be prevented by using a pipe; again, examples are shown below).

The pipe trick quickly makes shorter link text, but could be confusing in circumstances like the DynamicPageList link examples.

Enlaces externos[edit]

To add an external link, enclose the URL followed by space and the name of the page you want to link to in single square brackets. When you save the page, you'll see the new link pointing to your page, with an arrow icon after it to show that it was coded with single bracket external link syntax, and thus may lead to another site.

Iconos de enlace externo[edit]

Some MediaWiki installations are set up to use special icons to denote external links to specific file types or using specific protocols. None of these special icons are enabled here on, but we present them here for the sake of completeness.

Enlaces interwikis[edit]

Interwiki links are links with the internal link markup to a website registered in advance. For example, you can link to the article by typing [[wikipedia:Sunflower]], which will result in a link wikipedia:Sunflower. This works because by default MediaWiki configures wikipedia: as an "interwiki prefix" that turns into when used inside [[ ]]. (It may not work if the admin of your wiki has changed the setting.) Unlike internal links, interwiki links do not use page existence detection, so an interwiki link will appear blue even if the page does not exist on the remote wiki.

Similar to internal page links, you can create piped links, with alternate link label, e.g. [[wikipedia:Sunflower|big yellow flower]] is the link big yellow flower and [[wikipedia:Sunflower|]] is the link Sunflower.

Basically, interwiki links are abbreviations for commonly-used longer external links. A very similar link could be created as [ big yellow flower].

More details are at Manual:Interwiki and m:Help:Interwiki linking. Your wiki may have a Special:Interwiki page listing the interwiki prefixes it supports; here is the default interwiki list. You can edit the Manual:Interwiki table on your site.

Enlaces interidiomas[edit]

If your wiki has other language versions, you may find “interlanguage links” in the sidebar, just below toolbox in a section titled “in other languages.”

Interlanguage links behave similarly to interwiki links (or category links), except that they appear as a list in the sidebar and not within the content of the page (or below it in the categories bar). To create an interlanguage link to the corresponding page in another language, type [[language prefix:pagename]] anywhere in the page (preferably at the bottom, like category links); the language prefix is the prefix specified at your wiki for the other language version (typically the ISO 639-1 language code). The interlanguage link is unilateral, it does not point back from that page in the other language. For that purpose, an equivalent back-link needs to be placed there as well. It does not work like the "Edit links" in the languages section of Wikipedia-language versions. But it can be used across all name spaces, including 'User:' to point to ones other profiles in other languages.

If you want to make the interlanguage link appear at a specific place in the content of the page rather than in the sidebar, add a colon before the language prefix:


When a link is both interwiki and interlanguage, the order is wikipedia:en:Sunflower.

For more information, see m:Help:Interlanguage link.
