URL not working[edit]

I tried to link to this article from another WP article and got an error. How can this be fixed? ChristineBaker1 (talk) 19:16, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

ChristineBaker1 Hello, the way to make a link is to take the full title of an article and put it in brackets. So the link has to be "[[Oceana (non-profit group)]]" and will render as Oceana (non-profit group). If that looks awkward, you can make a "piped" link according to the instructions at WP:PIPE. A "piped link" is when the text says one word, the but link goes somewhere else. In this case, you might use the code "[[Oceana (non-profit group)|Oceana]], which displays as Oceana but links to the article with the title in parentheses. I hope that helps.

Bluerasberry Thanks, I realized I could make it an external link, but hoped that somehow the actual title could be fixed so that it could be an internal link too. ChristineBaker1 (talk) 19:46, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Just to be clear, when I try to add the link as internal link such as Talk:Oceana_%28non-profit_group%29 I get the error message "invalid title." ChristineBaker1 (talk) 19:51, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Promotional piece[edit]

This article also reads like a promotional piece or a press release, not an encyclopedia article. I'm removing "Notable Supporters" and "Board of Directors" -- that information is at their website and it really shouldn't be here. Also, this article needs objective, outside information regarding Oceana that reports on their goals and if they were met, any controversies, etc. Rissa, Guild of Copy Editors (talk) 06:03, 5 September 2015 (UTC)
