Integration Into the Wiki Structure
Links are especially useful to other users who may want to get further information on a topic. They help to make an article short and precise by interlinking between articles and not repeating information that has already been documented somewhere else.
Links also help structure a wiki so that individual articles do not get lost. On energypedia we usually distinguish between two types of links:
- Internal Link: The first option is to link to another article or to link to a particular headline in another or the same article, within energypedia. If you want to link to a file it needs to be uploaded before. For instructions on linking to a file, click here.
- External Link: Using external links, you can link to external articles in the web.
