Help:Interwiki linking

From Navipedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Interwiki links are links to pages of other projects, using a prefixed internal link style. Interwiki links make it possible, to link to pages of (e.g.) Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikinews etc. or to your wiki-project in different languages.

A link like [[Wikipedia:Main Page]] will appear like this: Wikipedia:Main Page and redirect you to Wikipedia's Main Page or [[skybrary:GALILEO]] will lead to skybrary:GALILEO
