Near Linking

NearLinking means AutomaticLinking to pages of a neighbouring wiki. Typically the link rendering should be recognizable different, so that users understand that they follow a link to a separate system. NearLinking and the term iself was invented at the CommunityWiki (near-linking to MeatBall).

ProWiki supports NearLinking. It's a natural result of AutoLinkStrategies containing the 'S' strategy to link to sister sites. Often this is combined with MultiLinking.


Option/NearLinking is OFF by default.


Near links are constructed having the CSS classes "body near" defined. So the Designer can make the NearLinks looks different.
