SharePoint Wiki Links
A SharePoint tutorial by Peter Kalmstrom
wiki links only work within one site, and they cannot be added by clicking
a button. Instead the wiki link syntax has to be typed in.
But with wiki links you can achieve things that are difficult to do in other
ways. Peter Kalmstrom, CEO of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions and Microsoft
certified SharePoint specialist, shows some examples in the demo below.
Double square brackets
Wiki links are always surrounded by double square brackets, and when you type
the first two brackets on a SharePoint page in edit mode, you will be shown
a list of the site's pages, lists and views. Select one of the options and
add the closing brackets, and a wikilink is created.
Peter shows seven different ways to manipulate and work with wiki links. Note
that he uses the TAB key when he links to a document and a list.
- Create a link to an existing page.
- Create a link to a non existing page and let SharePoint create the new
- Create a link to a library.
- Create a link to a document
- Modify the anchor text of a link.
- Create a link to a list.
- Create a link to a list item that opens the item in a new window on top
of the SharePoint page where the link is placed.
