Links
Links to posts: The double square bracket indicates that this is a link to an article within the wiki:
[[Article1]]
If there is no article with this heading yet, a link to a new article is shown. If the article has been created, the user can jump directly to this article.

[[article|display name in text]]
The "|" character can be used to add a display text to a link. The alias text is used instead of the heading.
Links to images: The keyword "Image:" indicates that an image is displayed.
[[Image:myImage.png]], [[Image:http://www.intrexx.de/images/myImage.png]]
This can be used to reference an image that is stored in the "htmlroot" directory. Naturally, subfolders or links to external websites can also be specified.

[[Image:myImage.png|alt tag]]
The "|" character can be used to add an alt tag to an image.
Links to websites: The single square bracket indicates that this is a link to an external web page:
[http://www.intrexx.de]
This is the link to the Intrexx website.

[http://www.intrexx.de|The Intrexx website]

Linking list entries

List entry line 2\
List entry line 3
1 List entry line 1\
List entry line 2\
List entry line 3
  1. List entry line 1
    List entry line 2
    List entry line 3
  2. List entry line 1
    List entry line 2
    List entry line 3

Particularities

Masking with the '\' character can prevent styles from being applied or lists from being generated (to output the '\' character, you must enter '\\').

Example:
\1. Text does not become a list

or
\& becomes &amp;
\< becomes &lt;
\> becomes &gt;


Text embedded in [[!!]] is ignored.


Example:
[[! == Heading 1 == !]] is output as == Heading 1 ==.
