Wiki Links

Wiki Page Links is a WordPress plug-in that allows you to add Wikipedia-style hyperlinks to your posts and pages and automatically have them link to your WordPress pages.

For example, if you write this code in your blog:

See my [[About]] page.

You’d see this output:

See my About page.

Other Features

  • You can provide a list of link templates for adding links to other sites, such as Wikipedia. Eg. if you specify [[wiki:Hyperlinks]], you get a link to the corresponding Wikipedia page.
  • Wikipedia-style pipe (|) aliasing.
  • If a page doesn’t exist, you’ll see a link (“[?]”) to create a new page.
  • If you really want things in square brackets, you can escape the first square bracket with a backslash: \[[for example]]



  • The initial release.
  • Supports Wikipedia links.
  • Links to pages.


  • Added “[?]” edit link for undefined pages.


  • Minor fix for WP 3.0 support.
  • Only show [?] link if the user is logged in.

Features TODO:

  • Add an admin panel for adding new shortcut link templates.

  1. Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based on the same information you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.

  2. Hi Darcy,

    I’m using your plugin on PHP7 – the ‘split’ function is deprecated as of PHP7, all it needs are two words fixing in the code, can I send you the fixes for you to push? It’s backwards compatible and will work for older versions too.

  3. Hi Kayleigh & Darcy

    It’s March 2019 – I’d love to use this plugin – it has exactly the capability I need – the other options out there have more features than I need, and that equates to bloat…

    I’m running with WordPress 5.1.1 on PHP 7

    Kayleigh – if you are happy to share the fixes here or send me a copy I’d be very grateful.

    Darcy – would this be OK with you?

    I’m at “martin.schmalenbach[at]”

    Many thanks

  4. Hi there, I use a long since abandoned plug-in (still functional) named “Interlinks”. It links to posts in in the same way you link to pages. That is exactly, what I would need. I’m a little bit worried, Interlinks might cease to function at every new update of wordpress. I’ve no idea if it would be possible to make linking to posts available. If you want (and tell me how I would do that), I send to you the old plugin. Greetings, Matthias
