InsertLink offers a dialogue to insert links without using the wiki code.

Usage / Features

If you are already in the edit mode, you find the function "InsertLink" in the wiki code editor and in the WYSIWYG editor. Click on the link button to open the dialogue. If you want to delete a link please use the red button next to it.

Users can link:

  • To other wiki pages.
  • To external websites.
  • To files uploaded to the wiki.
  • To files on other drive.

These functions do not just save you time working with wiki code, but also present you with a list of existing articles in the wiki for you to choose from. If the page you are trying to link to doesn't exist (yet) a red note will be shown.

Rights (permissions)
