I've notice the
See [[topic]]
to refer people to the proper entry.
Are we also gonna use

See also [[topic]]
to refer people to entires that provide additional inf?
Or is there another method being used.

example:
I want to make an entry for Lee Harvey Oswald and have a "see also" to the JFK conspiracy entry.

Instead of see [[topic]] we should be using #REDIRECT [[topic]].
Re-directs

That works
.

If you find you have to make a lot of "see alsos" on an article conceder making a headline for internal links. Like what I did on the Telepathy article.

I added the "Related Paranormal Phenomenon." headline for internal links to related threads.

Thanks for that info on redirect. I'll edit the "see"I did yesterday


What is the preferred method for external link:
after the entry, as a list of external links, or
as number notes in the body of the entry.
Or, does it depend how many external links you have??

I think the links should be a little descriptive to help people find what they are interested in a little easier. Is this what you are asking?

Edit: I see what you are saying. I have been listing the external links as a list at the bottom of the article. It is just easier that way. I think as we go along we can refine the articles and put links in the body when we see a word or pohrase that can use them. So really I think both ways work.

Yeah sorry about using the 'See [[article]]' links, I wasn't aware of the #REDIRECT [[article]] function.
I've been adding a couple of ==Related Topics/Entries== subsections to a couple of pages to allow users to find more info on related stuff.

No worries nrky. We are all new to this and learning as we go.

hmmmm.... I think we might need to start setting up template headers, and template header ORDERS, as well.
ie.
(main body of text)
==Relevant ATS Discussion Threads==
==More Info & Further Study== (would contain external links)
==Related Topics== (internal links, more specific than using categories)
==References== (where the ref tag sends it's stuff)

etc..
