Some examples of using shortcuts include:

    [[!article  760@Autzoo.UUCP]]
    [[!google  foo]]

This page controls what shortcut links the wiki supports.

  • shortcut article points to http://article.olduse.net/%s
  • shortcut google points to https://encrypted.google.com/search?q=%s
  • shortcut archive points to http://web.archive.org/*/%S
  • shortcut wikipedia points to https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/%s

To add a new shortcut, use the shortcut directive. In the url, "%s" is replaced with the text passed to the named shortcut, after url encoding it, and '%S' is replaced with the raw, non-encoded text. The optional desc parameter controls the description of the link.

Remember that the name you give the shortcut will become a new directive. Avoid using a name that conflicts with an existing directive. These directives also accept a desc parameter that will override the one provided at definition time.
