Random technical wiki 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.
