Wiki internal links

One of the most important features of the wiki is the internal linking to other wiki pages, therefore it is quite simple.

WikiNames ("CamelCase")

If you WriteWordsTogether like FistnameLastname or CamelCase or MoinMoin, so that there are at least two changes between capital letters and lower case letters, MoinMoin will automatically link this word to the page of the same name.

This is quite simple, because wiki markup isn't necessary. But the unusual syntax isn't everyone's cup of tea, so there is one more alternative, the so-called "free link".


CamelCase !CamelCaseButNotLinked


CamelCase CamelCaseButNotLinked

Free links

If you want to link pages, which aren't in CamelCase or if you just don't like CamelCase, you can also link this way:


A [[free link]] and [[other page|another page]].


A free link and another page.

Tracing backwards from links

If you click on the page name in the navigation area, the wiki looks for pages which link to this page name.

This can be used for so-called wiki badges. You just write somewhere:

ToDo: Call costumer foobar regarding ...

ToDo is CamelCase, so it links to a homonymous page, which isn't very exiting. :)

(!) But you can click on the page name on the page ToDo and lo and behold, you find every page that also includes a ToDo.
