There are four sorts of links in MediaWiki (the software used to drive POV-Wiki):

  1. internal links to other pages in the wiki
  2. external links to websites
  3. inter-wiki links (links to other wikis)
  4. inter-language links to other language versions of the same wiki

To add an internal link, enclose the name of the page you want to link to in double square brackets. When you save the page, you'll see the new link pointing to your page. If the page exists already, it is displayed in blue, empty pages are displayed in red. Selflinks to the current page are not transformed in URLs but displayed in bold.

Spaces are represented as underscores (typing an underscore in the link will have a similar effect as typing a space, but is not recommended, since the underscore will also be shown in the text).
