Linking to wiki travel guide articles from the forum?

Travel Forums System Talk Linking to wiki travel guide articles from the forum?

When I reply to questions in the forum I sometimes wish I had a quick way of linking to articles in the wiki guide. In the same way you hit B for bold.

I know it is possible to do that via the URL button, but for this I have to pull up the TP wiki article in my browser and copy/paste the url. It would be much nicer if I could do this with an internal link,
say [ [ city ] ].

Any chance of that happening?

Since I use Mozilla I usually don't bother with linking TP Wiki Travel Guide articles, for me it is much easier and faster to pull up the Wikipedia and wikitravel.org articles or the links that are in my bookmarks.

Yes, you can use the wiki style link for the travel guide articles and also external links.
So, typing [[London]] will produce London. Give it a try! :)

We'll need to fix this so there is a button for it as well. But yes, the functionality is already there :)
