If you create a numeric page like 4500 (which is a bit of a chore), trying to link to it using [4500] looks like this:

[4500] (and the link does not work)

As a work around, you can link to it using an interwiki link:


Duh! I just figured out that it's confused with footnotes. I guess it's not very feasable to have a numeric page. You can jump through a few hoops to create such a page but you can't easily link to it. An interwiki link won't show up as a referrer. -- JMiner

Yeah, you're not suppose to use any page starting with a number as an WikiName. Always start it with a letter... --JanneJalkanen

While you have to work hard to create a page with a purely numeric name, it's much simpler to create a page that has a name with a numeric prefix. If you put a name like 4500ParTest in your page, it is not recognized as a WikiName. But you can easily put it in brackets, like [4500PAR] and you have a page with a numeric prefix. Like so: 4500PAR

The only downside is that you can't use such a page with the insert page plugin.


Oops... This should be explicity discouraged somehow.
