Description Ryan Schmidt 2005-02-07 20:01:24 UTC
I read about the pipe trick (automatic conversion of wikitext) here:

So when creating a wiki page which had lots of links to other sections of itself, I 
started trying to write things like "[[#Contact|]]" to construct a link to the Contact 
anchor on this page and make "Contact" the text of the link. (If I just wrote 
[[#Contact]] the text of the link would be "#Contact" which I don't want.)

But this shortcut doesn't seem to work. Instead I have to write 
"[[#Contact|Contact]]". Can the shortcut be added? Would be nice.
