RationalWiki:Wiki fact/Tech fact 5
The pipe trick can save you from some fidgety editing, especially when trying to link across namespaces.
For example: by typing in
[[Forum:Loya Jirga|]] the software will automatically place
[[Forum:Loya Jirga|Loya Jirga]] for you when saving, resulting in Loya Jirga.
Another useful trick is disambiguations such as
[[mass (physics)|]], which is automatically replaced with
[[mass (physics)|mass]], resulting in mass.
You can even use this to link to other wikis, e.g,
[[wp:Help:Pipe trick|]] produces Help:Pipe trick.
