How to create a link to another article

When you are editing an article in Wikipedia, and you want to create a link to another Wikipedia article, place double square brackets around the topic you want to link to. For example:

[[pear]]

produces this link:

pear

For the plural write this:

[[pear]]s

which will look like this:

pears

if you want to create a link to a section of an article (for example "Health benefits" of the "pear" article) place an internal hyperlink "Pear#Health_benefits" separated by a vertical bar ("|")

[[Pear#Health_benefits|pear health benefits]]

which will look like this

pear health benefits
