Tip of the day...

Link tricks

Here are two tricks to reduce the amount of typing needed to create links:

1. The pipe trick: A pipe (|) at the end of the link to a page will hide disambiguations (the part of a page name in parentheses) and namespace prefixes ("Talk:", "Wikipedia:" etc.) from the visible link. For example: ''[[The Lord of the Rings (movie)|]]'' becomes ''[[The Lord of the Rings (movie)|The Lord of the Rings]]'', which is shown as The Lord of the Rings (the part in parentheses is now hidden).

Here's a namespace example: [[Wikipedia:About|]] is converted to [[Wikipedia:About|About]], which is shown as About.   (The namespace is now hidden).

2. Plural trick: Often, you'll be editing an article and need to make a link to a plural. For example, suppose you wanted to link "Fred Foo was famous for his study of puddles" to puddle. You could link it like so: [[puddle|puddles]]. However, you can save time instead by writing [[puddle]]s. This also works for adjectives ([[Japan]]ese), verbs ([[dance]]d) and any other suffixes or prefixes. However, it does not work for some irregular verbs. ([[Try]]ied does not work; you have to use [[try|tried]]).
