Link to another wiki page
While editing a wiki page, to add a link to another page in your
site's wiki, type the name of that page enclosed by square brackets
[Page 2]). For more about editing wiki
pages, see Editing wiki pages.
If the page to which you're linking does not exist, Wiki will create
it automatically. The link to it on the page you're editing will
display with a question mark (
?) after it. For more, see
Adding a page to your site's wiki.
Link to an item in Resources or insert an image
To embed an image in your wiki page, you need to upload it to Resources, either in this site or another site (including My Workspace). You can do this in advance (see Resources), or as part of the steps below. You can also add a link to an item in your Resources area (e.g., a text document). To add either a link or an image:
- While editing your page, place your cursor where you want the link
or image to appear. From the formatting options above the editing
field, click the
Linkicon () to add a link or the
Imageicon () to add a picture.
- On the
Add Attachmentscreen, find the Resources item you want. Click
Show other sitesto find an item from another site. Next to the item, click
If your item isn't in Resources yet, use the
Addmenu next to the appropriate folder to upload or create it.
Note: If you use a file from My Workspace or another site, make sure the file is publicly viewable (i.e., accessible by participants outside of the site where the file resides). See Making your Resources items publicly accessible.
- Your item should now be listed under "Items to attach". You may
select more files, or if you're finished, click
Link to an external web page
To add a link to an external web page, you have two options:
- If you want the page to display the URL, simply type
the URL, and Wiki will automatically create a web link to that page.
- If you want the page to display the name of the web page instead of
the URL, modify the following example link so that it points to the page
Link Nameto the name of the web page, and replace the Google URL with the URL of the page to which you're linking.
Note: If the URL for the page to which you're
linking contains an ampersand (
&), replace the
ampersand with a semicolon (
;). If the URL contains
the escape sequence for the ampersand (
replace the entire sequence (
&) with a semicolon
Links to external web pages will display with an arrow icon next to them.
All the following feature demonstrations include audio, and each link will open a new window.
