There are a couple of possibilities to link. Basically you can divide links into internal and external ones. If you want to add an internal link, write the name of the page you want to link to within double square brackets. When you then save your page, a link to the page you've specified will appear. If the page already exists, it is displayed in blue, empty pages are displayed in red.

The first letter of the target page is automatically capitalized and spaces are represented as underscores (typing an underscore in the link will have a similar effect as typing a space, but is not recommended, since the underscore will also be shown in the text).

Also, use named links where ever possible! Instead of using the automatically numbered unnamed links, use footnotes!
