Adding an external link
Printable instructions here∞ [PDF | 140 KB]
For adding a link in your text to a different website, you can [[force a link]], rather similar to option 1 of the “Creating a new page” section. In order to create a link, you add the full web address (or URL), including the “http://” section of the address, make a space, and then write the word or words that you want to be visible.
[[http://www.britarch.ac.uk Council for British Archaeology]] would read as Council for British Archaeology∞
[[http://www.archaeologists.net www.archaeologists.net]] would read as www.archaeologists.net∞.
You can also simply include the address of the page you want to link to in your page.
http://www.britarch.ac.uk/ would read as http://www.britarch.ac.uk/∞
