Tip of the day

How to link to word definitions

Gpedia has a sister project that presents hundreds of thousands of word definitions. It's called Wiktionary. Let's say you are writing a sentence and you want to create a link to the definition of a word, the understanding of which is crucial to understanding that article. But in this hypothetical situation, you don't want to link to the Gpedia page for that word because doing so would be overkill. So, using our Source Editor, here's how you would provide a link to the definition of "understanding" on Wiktionary:

both [[wiktionary:understanding|]] and [[wikt:understanding|]] will display like this:

understanding

and will link to the definition of the word "understanding".

Notice that the "pipe trick" (|) was used in the links above.
