Cleanup.png This page or section requires a cleanup and you can help Hattrick Wiki by editing this page or section.
Possible reasons for the addition of this tag are: lack of consistency, bad or no usage of the basic editing rules, no neutral point of view, bad English, wrong links, too many links in a link section, irrelevant information, information rather needing its own article, a general need for a rewrite etc.

You can read more uptodate information about this topic in the Wikimedia articles about editing links, links and URLs.

What it looks like What you type

London has public transport.

  • A link to another hattrick wiki article.
  • Internally, the first letter of the target page is automatically capitalized and spaces are represented as underscores (typing an underscore in the link has the same effect as typing a space, but is not recommended).
  • Thus the link above is to the URL http://wiki.hattrick.org/Team_spirit, which is the Wikipedia article with the name "Team spirit". See also Wikipedia:Canonicalization.
London has [[public transport]].

San Francisco also has public transportation.

  • Same target, different name.
  • This is a piped link.
San Francisco also has
[[public transport|public transportation]].

San Francisco also has public transportation.

Examples include buses, taxis and streetcars.

  • Endings are blended into the link.
  • Preferred style is to use this instead of a piped link, if possible.
San Francisco also has
[[public transport]]ation.

Examples include [[bus]]es, [[taxi]]s
and [[streetcar]]s.

See the Hattrick:Manual of style.

Automatically hide stuff in parentheses: kingdom.

Automatically hide namespace and other stuff: HattrickWikiProject.

But not: [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style#Links|]]

  • The server fills in the part after the pipe character (|) when you save the page. The next time you open the edit box you will see the expanded piped link. When previewing your edits, you will not see the expanded form until you press Save and Edit again. The same applies to links to sections within the same page (see previous entry).
Automatically hide stuff in parentheses:
[[kingdom (biology)|]].

Automatically hide namespace and other stuff:
[[Hattrick:HattrickWikiProject|]].

  • Redirect one article title to another by placing a directive like the one shown to the right on the first line of the article (such as at a page titled "USA").
  • Note that, while it is possible to link to a section, it is not possible to redirect to a section. For example, "#REDIRECT [[United States#History]]" will redirect to the United States page, but not to any particular section on it. This feature will not be implemented in the future, so such redirects should not be used.
#REDIRECT [[United States]]
  • Link to a page on the same subject in another language by using a link of the form: [[language code:Title]].
  • It does not matter where you put these links while editing as they will always show up in the same place when you save the page, but placement at the end of the edit box is recommended.
  • Please see Hattrick:Interlanguage links and the list of languages and codes.
