Thaur's five types o links in MediaWiki:

  1. Internal links til ither pages in the wiki
  2. Ootby links til ither wabsteids
  3. Ootby links til internal pages in the wiki
  4. Interwiki links til ither wabsteids registert til the wiki in advance
  5. Interleid links til ither wabsteids registert aes ither leid versions o the wiki

Please note that this list does not include category links and file links, which are used to place pages into categories and display images or other media files, respectively.

Internal links

Tae add aen internal link, enclaise the name o the page that ye want tae link til in dooble square brackets. Whan ye hain the page, ye'll see the new link pointin til yer page. Gif the page awreadie exeests it is displeyed in blue, gif it disna, in reid. Sellinks til the nou page arna transformed intil URLs bit ar displeyed in baud. (Gif ye reallie want tae link til the nou page, uise aen ancher (see ablo), or [[#top|nou page]], this aye links til the tap.)

To markup any arbitrary string of text (not necessarily a page title) as a link, use a "vertical bar" or "pipe" character, like this: [[Help:Categories|category links]] results in the link category links.

The first letter o the tairget page is autæmateeclie capitalised, onless itherwise set bi the admeens, n spaces ar represented aes unnerscores (typin aen unnerscore in the link will hae ae siclike effect aes typin ae space, bit isna recommendit, aes the unnerscore will be shawn in the tex ava).

If the page title you are linking to is that of the page you are editing, the result is not a hyperlink at all but simply bold text (for example, on this page the markup [[Help:Links/sco]] gives the result Help:Links/sco). If you're trying to create a wikilink to the current page, you probably want to link to a specific section or to an anchor within the page; see the examples below.

MediaWiki uses the pagelinks database table to keep track of internal wikilinks.

Internal link til aen ancher

Anchors are provided automatically on section headings and to the top of the page.

#See also
Settin aen internal link ancher
<div id="Unique anchor name 1">optional text</div>

<span id="Unique anchor name 2">optional text</span>

Rendered block-level and inline, respectively. Doing this would allow for [[#Unique anchor name 1]] on the same page or [[Help:Links/sco#Unique anchor name 1]] on a different page. Omit the "optional text" for an invisible anchor.


Setting an anchor in a section heading

==<span id="Alternate Section Title"></span>Section heading==

Note the placement. This must be a "span" tag, not a "div". (Such anchors allow sections to be retitled without breaking incoming links.)

Without the leading colon the link would not be visible and the page would instead be placed into the category; this is a very common mistake. See Help:Categeries ava

Internal link to a specific revision
[[Special:PermanentLink/2393992]]

Revision numbers can be found in each page's edit history. (It is very common to see links to specific revisions implemented as external links because it's easy to cut-and-paste an entire URL to form an external link.)

Internal link to a "diff"

This is what happens if you omit the link text. Multiple links of this type on the same page are numbered sequentially.

Ootby link
https://mediawiki.org

URLs beginning with "http://" and "https://" are automatically linked, even when no brackets are used.

Protocol-relative external link
[//en.wikipedia.org Wikipedia]

[//en.wikipedia.org //en.wikipedia.org]

The link will be HTTP or HTTPS depending on the protocol of the page currently being viewed (which could be different for different users). This is only supported inside of square brackets [ ]. Using "//en.wikipedia.org" by itself does not result in a link.

Interwiki links

Interwiki links ar links wi the internal link maurkup til ae wabsteid registerit in advance. Fer example, ye can link til the Sunflower airticle oan http://en.wikipedia.org bi typin [[wikipedia:Sunflower]], this will ootcome in ae link wikipedia:Sunflower. This is cause http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ is registerit til yer wiki bi defaut wi the prefix o wikipedia. (This link micht na wairk richt gif the admeen o yer wiki haes chynged the settin.) Onlike internal links, interwiki links dinna uise page exeestance detection, sae aen interwiki link will kith aes blue even gif the page disna exeest oan the remote wiki.

Siclike til internal page links, ye can cræft piped links, wi alternate link label, e.g. [[wikipedia:Sunflower|muckle yellae flouer]] is the link muckle yellae flouer n [[wikipedia:Sunflower|]] is the link Sunflower.

Basiclie, interwiki links ar abbreeveeations fer commynlie uised langer external links. Ae fair siclike link coud be cræftit aes [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunflower muckle yellae flouer].

Interleid links

Gif yer wiki haes ither leid versions, ye micht fynd “interleid links” in the sidebaur, jist ablo tuilkist in the kist named “in other languages.”

In wiki markup an interlanguage link looks very much like an interwiki link, but behaves similarly to a category link in that it is rendered in a special way. While category links appear in a special list at the bottom of the page (usually), interlanguage links appear in a special list in the sidebar of the page (or elsewhere, depending on the wiki's configuration and the skin used).

The purpose of interlanguage links is to link pages on the same topics in different languages. To create an interlanguage link, type [[language prefix:page name]] 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.

Gif ye want tae get the interleid link tae kith in the content o the page raither than in the sidebaur, ye can add ae colon afore the leid prefix:

[[:en:Sunflower]]en:Sunflower

Whan ae link is baith interwiki n interleid, the order is wikipedia:en:Sunflower.

For more information, see m:Help:Interwiki linking#Interlanguage links.

Limits

An internal wiki link is limited by maximum page title size.
