Response to: Creating link to new wiki page ....

Vinod, I want to start by thanking you for your quick and thoughtful response to my message. I couldn't find the reply option so I'm posting to a new thread.

Yes, with WPMU wiki we can create new pages and can link anywhere but I'm asking about something else. In many wiki designs you can easily from edit mode create a link to any existing or new wiki page from a string of text without having to know or look up any url. This touches on the quickness and flexibility of use of the wiki including how easy it is to develop different ways to navigate the wiki as a whole ie the wikiness of the experience. My sense is the use case from which the WPMU wiki was designed was about very hierarchical knowledge structures with limited need for linking across the wiki.

As an example we can take a look as how this is done in WIkispaces
"Adding a link
Link to an existing page in the current wiki:

Highlight the text or image that you would like to make into a link.
Select the Link icon from the editor toolbar.
If there already is a page in your wiki named with the highlighted text, you will see the green check-mark in the Page Name field. If this is not the case, start typing the name of the page you would like to link to into to the Page Name field. You can either type the full name or choose it from the dropdown.
Click the Add Link button.
Save the wiki page.

Create a new page in the current wiki:

Highlight the text or image that you would like to make into a link.
Select the Link icon from the editor toolbar.
Type the name of the new page into the Page Name field.
Click the Add Link button.
Save the wiki page.
Follow the link and begin editing the new page."
