Wiki codes - how to use them.
« Topic Start: August 15, 2017, 07:09:32 PM »
I keep forgetting how to put a nice link to wiki article in messages and all other written things in-game.

And here's the answer, courtesy of Wimpie. He's very courteous. :)

You can add links to realms or regions by using the syntax [Region:Name] or [Realm:Name], e.g. [Realm:Ubent].
You can link to the wiki using wiki-link syntax, e.g. [[Main Page]].

So for Main pages, for my family you use [[Dacara Family]]
If I want to link to a subpage: [[Dacara Family/Jeames]]
If you want to display a different text for the link [[Dacara Family/Jeames|Click here for a link to the Jeames history]]

Hi,

It should be right there at the bottom of the text areas, at least for those where wiki codes are allowed:

You can also use [[/subpage/]] to create a subpage from the main page.
