Hello Zammies
A link for a page where the page name and the actual thing being described are slightly different. This is common for articles where the full name has a preceding insignificant word, such as A, An, or The, or when the pagename is singular and you want the link to display as plural, or vice versa.
Link to Database
Wiki Article
[[gameid dbname:pagename|displayed text]] [[EQ2 Zone:Thundering Steppes|The Thundering Steppes]]
The Thundering Steppes
This is the generic link style for a Wikibase page that is attached to a database record. The precise format can vary considerably by game.
Direct Link to Headers [[page name (gameid)#Header|displayed text]] [[Quests (WoW)#Repeatable, Daily, and PvP Quests|Daily Quests]]
Daily Quests
A link to a specific section of another Wiki page or the same page but to jump to a specific header, with a different displayed text. Useful for pointing to sections of other pages by their named headings.
Categories [[Category:category name]] [[Category:Planning]]
Places the current page into a category.
Link to a Category [[:Category:category name|displayed text]] [[:Category:Help Pages|More help pages]]
[[:Category:Help Pages|More help pages]]
Places a link to a category rather than placing this page in that category!
Redirects #REDIRECT [[any_link]] #REDIRECT [[More Accurate Pagename]] redirects any user trying to link to this page, sending them to the page named by any_link, which can be any of the link types above. This should be the only thing on the page, but anything else will be dropped anyway. If the destination link is to a Category page, the word Category must be preceded by a colon (:), otherwise the redirect page will be placed in that category. This actually could be useful behavior in some situations.
Any letter, or word, up to the next white space, that is contiguous with the link will be wrapped as part of the link, so the Wombats example, above, could have been [[Wombat]]s and it would render identically, as Wombats.

Type Code Example Example In-Action Explanation
External Link [ Google] Google The first string of code is the url, leave a space between the url and the renamed link, you must replace any spaces in the url code with the appropriate html code for whats missing to keep it uninterrupted.
