Creating Links to Wiki Pages

  • Use a CamelCase word (a compound word where each word is capitalized), such as NewPage, which creates: NewPage.

Creating Links to External Sites

  • Insert the link location (e.g. http://www.google.ca), and link name (e.g. Google) in a bracket and separate them with the bar symbol "|"



Adding [http://www.google.ca|Google] would create the link Google.


Creating Headers
