What is the best way to link individual profiles to a page I created?

+9 votes

I've created a page for the First Interregnum which occurred after the death of [[Eriksdatter-10|Margaret, ''Maid of Norway'']]. This was a time when Scotland had no Monarch. The page (still a work in progress) ties in all the major players - the Guardians of, and the competitors for the throne. 

It is easy to link to the individual profiles but i'm not sure of the best/proper way to link fron the profiles to this page.


I'll next work on a similar page for the second  Interregnum. 

Thanks for the help

Hi Eugene,

Side issue ...

This integrregnum content is great, thank you for adding it, but I'm not sure it's in the right place. The "main namespace" is used for WikiTree Help pages. We've also used it for Genealogy Help, but there's a current discussion about moving those to regional categories.

Part of the significance of placement is who can edit. Only Supervisors can edit help pages. Any Wiki Genealogist can edit project and category pages. Anyone you add to the Trusted List can edit free-space profiles.

OK - If it gets moved, or has to be renamed, that's fine with me as long as I can find it after.

Thanks Chris!

I simply put the same URL links in the biography or above biography or in source section of the profiles to refer back to the free space page.

e.g. http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Born-111

There may be other options that I am not aware about on here .
