Wiki-syntax maks it eith ti mak uiser-freendly ootside airtins.

Ootside airtins[eedit | eedit soorce]

Gin ye want ti airt til a steid ootwith Wikipaedia, it shuid maistlins gang unner the "Fremmit airtins" headin at the end o an airticle.

The eithest gate ti mak an airtin is juist ti type in the full URL for the page ye want til airt til. Gin ye want ti mak an airtin ti Google, aa ye maun dae is type:

http://www.google.com/

The wiki'll treat this text as an airtin (as haes bin duin wi the URL abuin) athoot further adae an will shaw the raa wab address, includin the "http://" bit. In practice, ye winna see this format muckle, sin raa URLs are ug an aften gie nae clue as ti whit the steid raelly is.

Ti mak the airtin shaw something ither nor the URL, uise the ae square bracket at baith ends. Gin ye want ti mak an airtin ti Google, type:

[http://www.google.com/]

This will shaw the airtin as a nummer in brackets, like this: [1]. This format is maistlins uised for citin soorces within an airticle. It leuks like a footnote, sae it's best til uise it juist as sic (for exemplar, follaein a direck quote or a statement that maun hae a soorce). Evyte this usage: "Accordin til [2], the last full muin o the seicond millennium teuk place on December 11, 1999." Also evyte uisin an ootside airtin whan ye can dae the same thing wi an inside airtin til a Wikipedia airticle.

Gin you want the airtin til appear wi differin text, eik an alternative teitle aifter the address separated frae it bi a space (nae a pipe). Sae gin ye want the airtin til appear as Google rakin mill, juist type:

[http://www.google.com/ Google rakin mill]

Mind: Uisin some characters, sic as a pipe (|) in the URL o the airtin will cause the airtin nae to work; houaniver, URL syntax gies ye the abeility ti specify onie character in a URL as a hexadecimal equivalent til its ASCII guise, sae ye can, for exemplar, screive %7C stead o the pipe character. See oor table o ASCII printable characters for mair hexadecimal codes.

Whan placed aneth the "Ither wabsteids" headin, the airtins suid be leeted in bullet-pynt format:

==Ither wabsteids==
*[http://www.google.com/ Google rakin mill]
