Subject Re: [jira] [Created] (JSPWIKI-786) Expand Functionality for InterWiki links
Date Thu, 18 Jul 2013 19:26:00 GMT
Are you suggesting that the search would be done on the external wikis?
Just to note that the Interwiki functionality does *not* provide any
connection to the external wiki, just a syntactic shortcut. E.g., from the
following definitions in WEB-INF/

#  Wikipedia, a Wiki encyclopedia!
jspwiki.interWikiRef.Wikipedia =

#  Google, the ubiquitous search engine.
jspwiki.interWikiRef.Google =

So, [Wikipedia:SomePage] would be a reference to and [] would be a reference to So in the latter case there is no
wiki page at all as the reference isn't even to a wiki (but Google would
provide URLs as a result, a "false positive").

Could you clarify your suggestion? On its face this sounds unworkable.
