What it looks like What you type
London has public transport.
  • First letter of target is automatically capitalized.
  • Internally spaces are automatically represented as underscores (typing an underscore has the same effect as typing a space, but is not recommended).

Thus the link above is to http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_transport, which is the article with the name "Public transport". See also Wikipedia:Canonization.

London has [[public transport]].

World Heritage Sites#New Zealand
is an example link to a section name on a page, see == headers == above.

Links to non-existent sections aren't broken, they are treated as links to the top of the page.

Same target, different name:

answers.
(This is a piped link.)

Same target, different name:

into the link: [[test]]ing, [[gene]]s

Automatically hide stuff in parentheses: kingdom.

Automatically hide namespace: Village Pump.

The server fills in the part after the | when you save the page. Next time you open the edit box you will see the expanded piped link. A preview interprets the abbreviated form correctly, but does not expand it yet in the edit box. Press Save and again Edit, and you will see the expanded version. The same applies for the following feature.

Automatically hide stuff in parentheses:
[[kingdom (biology)|]]. 


Automatically hide namespace: 
[[Wikipedia:Village Pump|]].

Wikipedia:How to edit a page is this page. Self links appear as bold text when the article is viewed.

Redirect one article title to another by putting text like this in its first line. Note that redirects to sections do not work yet. #REDIRECT [[United States#History]] will redirect to the United States page, but not to any particular section on it. It is possible this feature will be implemented in future, so such redirects could be used now for future compatibility.

#REDIRECT [[United States]]

Link to a page on the same subject in another language using a link like [[language code:Title]].

It does not matter where you put these links while editing as they always show up in the same place when you save the page, but placement at the end of the edit box is recommended. See Wikipedia:Interlanguage links and list of languages and codes.
