Help: Links

Links can be used to show a new page on the website, show a different website, or send e-mail. The link is placed between a pair of double brackets (ie. [[ ... ]]). Links may be the title of a local webpage, the URL of a remote webpage, or an e-mail address:

If a web page doesn't exist, the link will show up in red and you can create the web page by clicking on the red link.

PDF Files

PDF files may also be accessed using a link. There are two ways to do it: giving the long URL name (i.e. http//www.foo.org/... etc.) or a short link giving the directory name preceded by "../" (e.g. ../about/foo.pdf).
