How do I make the name into a link?

+8 votes
I am trying to make each name on my free-space profile: Victims of the 1927 Tornado in Southeastern Missouri into a link.

I cannot figure out how to do this. I tried highlighting the name and then clicking the little icon that has a link over a tree. It doesn't seem to work. I get an error.

Please help. Thanks in advance.

If they have a Wikitree ID number, the format is like this: [[Rexford-344|Harry Rexford]] So that's two brackets, wikitree ID, one bar, name, two brackets.

If you're linking to an external website, the format is like this:  [URL Name URL goes to]
