I think the recommendation should say whether the text description of the URL must be all on one line or not. -- AlexSchroeder

Should creole support recognition of url's without markup as links? Example: if there is http://www.wikicreole.org it would become a link without having to put markup around it. I think it would be useful - intiuitive and less typing.


Moved discussion about address/description order to Talk.AlternateLinkSyntaxProposal.

Hi. Just a short question: Are InterWiki-Links, like [[WikiCreole:Creole1.0]], mandatory for an implementation of the WikiCreole 0.6 specification? Thanks in advance!
-- Martin Junghans

To be honest, they haven't been discussed yet, so basically we don't know. On the other hand, ThereIsNoWrongWayToImplementCreole, so nobody will kill you if you skip them -- at the worst, you get some users complaining that they miss it.

-- RadomirDopieralski, 2007-Apr-28

It's only mandatory if you have an implementation of InterWiki in your wiki. If you don't use InterWiki, you can safely ignore it.

I propose the usage of mailto://test@example.com (to be rendered in output as mailto:test@example.com) for email urls, even if this is not standards-friendly. Any opinion about this? Is there a better place where to post this suggestion? Or should we postpone the discussion to the next Creole specification?

In WikiOnAStick there is no automatic URL decoration, so external URLs (with protocol) have to be specified using square brackets [[protocol://uniformresourcelocator]]; if we'd parse [[mailto:test@example.com]] as test@example.com, a page titled mailto:something would never get the internal wiki hyperlink. Using the double slashes also on mailto protocol would prevent this. This is our solution to our problem, I still have to understand if it has relevance in WikiCreole.

For inner page anchors, the following syntax is recommend:


Suggested HTML:

 <a name='1' /> 

For inner page links, the following syntax is recommended:


Suggested HTML:

 <a href='#1'>text</a> 

Note: without optional link text, using the # results in an inner page anchor. However, when using the optional link text, using the # results in a link to an inner page anchor.

-- JohnCook

I'd prefer a clearer way to disambiguate anchors and links, so that links don't need text; e.g. [[@Chater1]] for anchor and [[#Chapter1]] or [[#Chapter1|Chapter 1]] for link.The at character is used for labels in some assembly languages, iirc, so it isn't new. It would also blend more cleanly with links between pages.
