Links on the central physics website

To find out how to create links, see Formatting web content

There are several ways that the website can link pages

Auto linking

Autolinking is where you type in a link in the content of your page


As you can see, the website automatically links the page to the correct url.

Disabling autolinking

Sometimes, the autolinking can be a little too zealous:

To stop a link from appearing, you can replace ":" with ":":

You can also enclose the url in <pre></pre> tags:
<pre> smb:// </pre>

Links that follow page moves

Whenever a page is renamed and its URL changes, a redirect is automatically created so that people with the old URL are automatically redirected to the page's new location. If you would like to remove a redirect, please email
