Have you ever found it annoying how there are two different syntaxes for links: [[[category:some-page | link text]]] and [http://somewiki.wikidot.com/category:some-page link text]?
The reason is historical, the original wiki parser blah blah blah… who cares? Problem is: if we have a bunch of links to pages in the same site, and then we want to move that code to a different site, we need to add extra square brackets, before and after, and remove that vertical bar.
So, I've discovered a workaround that is so simple and useful it's worth sharing. Use this format for links to pages:
- [/category:some-page link text]
And if you want to make the link absolute, add http://somewiki.wikidot.com/ in front of it. That's it, voila! Well, just don't forget to add a link text: without that, it won't be recognised as a link.
