InterWiki

Please edit system and help pages ONLY in the master wiki!

For more information, please see MoinMoin:MoinDev/Translation.

##master-page:Unknown-Page #acl -All:write Default #format wiki #language en InterWiki links are a quick way to refer to information in other wikis, without having to remember long or cryptic URLs. To create an InterWiki link, just use the InterWiki name of the foreign wiki, then a colon (:), followed by the name of the page on that wiki.

For example {{{Wikipedia:MoinMoin}}} would be rendered as Wikipedia:MoinMoin, which points to the page about MoinMoin on the English Wikipedia site.

Wiki Wiki Web:InterWiki says: Historically, the term referred to having one wiki, distributed across several servers; See: Distributed Wiki, One Big Wiki (Switch Wiki), Wiki Web Transfer Protocol, World Wide Wiki Web, Multi Server Wiki Over time, InterWiki has come to mean connecting existing wiki, of various WikiEngine types, together. cf Federated Wiki

You can add new entries by editing InterWikiMap.

Of course, InterWiki links are not rendered differently when the remote page does not exist, and MoinMoin cannot check whether you followed the rules for Wiki Name``s of the other wiki. So double-check what you type.

See the MeatBall:InterWiki page on MeatBall:MeatballWiki for further details.

MoinMoin marks the InterWiki links in a way that works for the MeatBall:ColourBlind and also is MeatBall:LynxFriendly by using a little icon with an ALT attribute. If you hover above the icon in a graphical browser, you'll see to which Wiki it refers. BTW, the reasoning behind the icon used is based on the idea that a Wiki:Wiki Wiki Web is created by a team effort of several people.
