What is a WikiWord?

Added:

 A WikiWord consists of two or more words with initial capitals, run together. WikiWords are topic names. A TWiki topic name always has a fixed format: two or more words with initial capitals, run together. Like the name of the current topic: WikiWord. When you type the name of a topic, you create a link to that topic. You type WebHome and on saving the page this becomes WebHome. It's as easy as that.

When you type a WikiWord, you establish a hyperlink. It's as easy as that.

When you write the name of a topic, it becomes a link. There are more ways:
 
  • To write a custom link label, use bracket notation: [[TWikiAccessControl][access control]] - this becomes: access control
  • To link to a topic in another web, write: Sandbox.WebSearch - this becomes: WebSearch
Line: 81 to 83
 
  • ALERT! When linking to a WebHome topic in another web, the link will be rendered as the name of the web, e.g. Sandbox.WebHome becomes Sandbox.
  • ALERT! Dots (.) are used as seperators between webs, subwebs, and topics. It is not possible to use dots in topic names. TWiki does not attempt to guess if a dot could be part of a topic name.
