We've seen how to create links that establish additional internal pages. We've also now seen how to create a link to an image that we have uploaded as an attachment, so that it can display inline. Another kind of link that you or your students are likely going to want to do is to create a link to an outside page. To do this, simply click on the Edit button inside of your Coral Group page and at the bottom of the text box, we'll enter a couple of Returns and then we'll create a link out to Google Scholar that will list some current research on coral polyp density related to depth.
To do this, simply type a left-hand square bracket and then we'll type in the link text of Current Research Papers, then type in a Pipe character which is the vertical bar, on your keyboard it's often above the Enter or Return using the Shift key. We'll then need to type in the link of the page that we want to go to. Let's hit Command+T or Ctrl+T on your keyboard to open a new tab inside of our Firefox browser and go to scholar. google.com. We'll then do our search for Coral Polyp Density Depth. We'll click the Search button to get a listing of all the current articles related to Coral Polyp Density Depth. We'll click on the link for Recent articles, then select the dropdown menu to look at only the articles since 2009.
Now we have our short listing of current research related to this topic. We can then select the URL at the top of the page, hit Command+C or Ctrl+C to copy that URL, go back to the tab for our Wiki, and then simply paste by hitting Command+V or Ctrl+V, the entire URL inside of the text box. We'll close the link by entering a right-hand square bracket and then click the Save button to view our work. We will scroll down in the page and we can see the text that we entered on the left-hand side of the pipe character or Current Research Papers. Then if we click on that link, the page is refreshed to take us directly to the listing inside of Google Scholar. Click the Back button in your browser and we are ready for the last tool of our Wiki and that is to create a data table inside of our Wiki.
