Wikis provide the opportunity to link a word in your current article with any other existing wiki article. Usually the word(s) you link match the linked article ´s title . Especially descriptive texts using a lot more definable words use these links.
Note: To link a word with another article be sure this article really exists. If it does not exist the link will be displayed red. This is also a way to create a new article (see Edit Articles).
1. Highlight the word(s) that will build the link later and click the Edit/Insert Link symbol in the toolbar.

Highlight the title of the preferred article in the list below and confirm with OK.
3. All links are displayed in blue and underlined in the editor.
4. Make sure to save your changes by clicking Save page at the bottom of the page.
5. In the article- view successfully linked words are displayed in blue. Links with no existing target are displayed in red.
6. Click a blue link to get to the linked article.
Note: If you click on a link with no existing target (red) you can create the article for that link. This is a way to create a new article (see Edit Article).
