Linking to pages[edit]

Linking to pages can be really easy! you can use two types of links:

  • External links (to another webpage foreign to shoutwiki.)
  • Internal links (Pages to pages) Help pages

To make a link for external use, [[URL display]] To make a link for internal use, [[Target|display]]


After the page link, you may also make a display name for the link. Simply type | after the targeted page name (Only for internal links) + Text, for assistance, please click "Help pages" above or contact staff or any experienced user on their talk page.

Good luck! Your friends at Shoutwiki.

Displays of text[edit]

To contact shoutwiki staff, please use special:contact.
