Links, lines and spaces

Links

Links to other Wiki boards

To link to another wiki page you use the square brackets ~~~> [ . ] <~~~

There MUST be a space between any text within the brackets and the brackets themselves.
[This will not work ] - [ Neither will this]

This one works ] <~~~Placing your pointer here underlines the link.
Note - It will only take you to another wiki page if it has already been defined as a wiki page. A 'live' page link is blue.
See [ How to make a new wiki page ]


Links in clubs

Any links to wiki pages that you make within a club will remain within the club. No non-members will be able to view these pages.

In order to link to the Main Site wikis outside the club you must insert Main: before the wiki name, as in... [ Main: Wiki Start Page ], otherwise a new wiki will be defined within your club. Use Main to link outside from:- club wikis, disussion boards or the club members' page.

In order to link to a club wiki from outside the club, precede the wiki name with the club name and a colon
GoldToken: Wiki Start Page ]
Note that if you are not a member of the club, when you follow the link, you will be redirected to a main site wiki with the same name.

Links in messages and on games

Main site links will work in messages and games.
It is not possible to send a club link.

To link to club pages from a message or game:
Go to the page you wish to link to and copy the complete http//:address (At the top of the page in your browser's address bar).
Go to your message/game and paste the link.

Example
This is the http link for this page:
http://www.goldtoken.com/games/wiki?wiki=Spaces,%20lines%20and%20links;ref=Getting%20Started

Note: This method can also be used for sending a precise game position... eg move 24
(The game# takes you to the most recent position).
This is Game #1234567
This is move 10 in that game - http://www.goldtoken.com/games/play?g=1234567;v=19
