Link to a file

ella.chan

Hi all,

I am new to Wiki...

Is there an easy way to link a file on a page? I am currently doing
this:
 [http://host1/mediawiki-1.5.4/index.php?title=Image:test1.doc
test1.doc]


Thanks,

Ella

See http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Images_and_other_uploaded_files
for some documentation. Be aware that it's quite Wikimedia-specific
(although the syntax works for all MediaWiki installations) and it's
plausible that it's out of date.

Usually, this is disabled.

If what you mean is link to a LOCAL file, then my answer applies.

The best i've found so far after trying many different approaches is
this extension:

If your users are using Firefox, you may need to adjust a setting for
local file links to work.
