Interwikilinks simplifies linking to other wikis. An InterWikiLink is an abbreviation, which stands for the beginning of an internet address (better: URL). This makes links much shorter. The actual address only needs to be known when defining the InterWikiLink, rather than each time it is used.

  • Special page via the administration section in the BlueSpice main menu or page directly via Special:InterWikiLinks.
  • Add new interwikilinks.

Technical background
