Tip of the day...


Linking to a section of an article

Sometimes it is necessary to refer to a section of a page when linking, rather than to the whole page. You can create a link to any subheading on any page in Wikipedia by including a "#" followed by the subheading at the end of a link.

For example: Wikipedia:Community portal#Help out.

In all section links, be sure to use a piped link for readability.

Using a piped link, the previous example looks like this: Help out.

If a section title changes, rather than going red/inactive, the link will lead to the top of the linked page.

Wiki-specifics[edit]

I've been a registered Wikipedian since May 2004, after reading about the project in a friend's LiveJournal. It didn't take long for an obsession to develop. I enjoy fixing grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors, which is what first got me hooked. Since then, I've moved back and forth among a lot of different areas: wikifying, hitting the random page button and fixing what I can, sorting stubs into categories, cleaning unsuitable articles from the new pages, and Recent Changes patrol. Now and then, I create a new article: 80 so far. The most unpleasant to research was Creeping eruption.
