A very useful feature is AutoLinking.

Every word in a wiki page automatically becomes a link, if there is a page that has this word as its name.

For example: If a somebody would now create a page called "feature" the word "feature" in the first line of this page here would be displayed as a link to the page named "feature" next time it is viewed although the word is not tagged as a link.

The Benefit: The Wiki starts inter-linking itself and older pages automatically recieve relevant links to new pages that could be missed otherwise.

Refinements:

  • automatically generated links could be marked as such by having a specific colour or mini-icon like external links.
  • this feature should of course be optional

Implementation

  • MaxVoelkel has allready implemented this as a (qick-and-dirty) hack to an older version of JSPWiki
  • I guess this would best be properly implemented as a pre-translate PageFilter

Problems:

  • handling of BackLinks could be difficult like this
  • doing this without an index could lead to scalability problems
    • (it runs fine on MaxVoelkels local Wiki with some 4000 Pages)
