Nine out of ten people may know this, but for those who don't (and I didn't for a long time) the easiest way to link a word to wikipedia is to just type [[wikipedia:Catfish|catfish which gets you catfish. Some people still use copy and paste, so this saves on paste (wikia has been complaining about the office supplies). Does anyone have any other good suggestions which you think everyone knows but maybe doesn't? Wait, I'll start. Aleister 16:42 25-2-'12

How about code, I've got some interesting code saved up. 92.142.5603

You can also type [[wikipedia:catfish|]] and get catfish. Fucking magical, or something.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 20:46 Feb 26, 2012

So {{W|Catfish gets Catfish! Saving on keystrokes every time I look at this page. Alek 22:38 26-2-'12
  • sigh* Why to make it so hard? Just type [[Catfish]] and you'll get Catfish. It's not that hard, dont make it harder.

Side note

I've just asked Sannse if we can add WikiHow to the interwiki links. (Given it's why we're apparently parodying with HowTo that does make sense.) Also, for a full list of what we can die an interwiki link to, click THIS. And I think I mentioned the pipe trick before, where [[:Wikipedia:Main Page|]] saves as [[:Wikipedia:Main page|Main page]] or Main page. Pup 06:42 12-03-12


There's a new, shorter way to link to Wikipedia described in more detail at Forum:HowTo:Link_to_Wikipedia. In short, You can now link to Wikipedia pages directly with [[wp:Name of page]]. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 16:51, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
