What is an link?

What made the internet possible is that Tim Berners-Lee figured out how pages could link to each other using a web browser. That code looks like http://www.aboutus.org. One of the wonderful things about wiki is that internal linking, links to pages within a wiki, is simple. See WikiLink for information on how to do that. The really cool think about a lot of wikis is that you easily link to each other by InterWiki links, preferably by BiLinks.

Tip for InterWiki linking

If you want to display the name of your InterWiki link without the name of the wiki preceding it, use the pipe character with nothing after it.

Examples

Example: [[Wikipedia:Wikipedia]] would display Wikipedia:Wikipedia, but [[Wikipedia:Wikipedia|]] will display: Wikipedia.

Alternative

Alternatively, what about doing Interwiki links for all of these? I've set up FortWiki in our interwiki database. Even though I know the people at Fort Wiki already know how to do it (since John's the one who taught me), let me give an example for any community member wanting to learn: FortWiki:Fort goes to the Fort page on www.fortwiki.com. Naturally, you can magic pipe if you like so that fort just shows the word "fort".
