author (intermediate) The InterMap is a system for defining links between WikiWikiWeb sites that was first developed by UseMod:UseModWiki and Meatball:MeatballWiki. InterMap links have the form MapPrefix:Page, where the host prefix is converted to a partial URL based on entries in the site's intermap.txt and localmap.txt files.

The default intermap.txt distributed with PmWiki (in the scripts/ directory) includes the following InterMap entries:

 PmWiki:     http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/ 
Cookbook: http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/
Wiki: http://www.c2.com/cgi/wiki?
UseMod: http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?
Meatball: http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?
Wikipedia: http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/
PITS: http://www.pmwiki.org/PITS/
Path:

Thus, PmWiki:Variables becomes a link to the PmWiki.Variables page on the official PmWiki web site, Wiki:FrontPage is a link to the front page of the first WikiWikiWeb, and Wikipedia:Stonehenge takes you to the Wikipedia article about the famous megaliths in England.

Like other links, you can use the double-bracket syntax to get different link text:

  • [[M/Meatball:StartingPoints | starting points]] over at Meatball becomes "starting points? over at Meatball"
  • [[starting points -> Meatball:StartingPoints]] over at Meatball becomes "starting points over at Meatball"

If you want to link just to what the intermap says (e.g. http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/ for Wikipedia), then do [[W/Wikipedia:. | Wikipedia's main page]], which produces . Note the . (period) after the Map: reference.

The special Path: InterMap entry can be used to create "relative urls?" in links?.

The actual set of InterMap links at any site is defined by the site administrator via the page and the local/localmap.txt file; for more details, see .
