PmWiki: InterMap

author (intermediate) The InterMap is a system for defining links between WikiWikiWeb sites that was first developed by UseMod:UseModWiki and Meatball:MeatballWiki. InterMap links have the form MapPrefix:Page, where the host prefix is converted to a partial URL based on entries in the site's intermap.txt and localmap.txt files.

The default intermap.txt distributed with PmWiki (in the scripts/ directory) includes the following InterMap entries:

PmWiki:		http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/
Cookbook:	http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/
Wiki:		http://www.c2.com/cgi/wiki?
UseMod:		http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?
Meatball:	http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?
Wikipedia:	http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/
PITS:		http://www.pmwiki.org/PITS/
Path:            

Thus, PmWiki:Variables becomes a link to the PmWiki.Variables page on the official PmWiki web site, Wiki:FrontPage is a link to the front page of the first WikiWikiWeb, and Wikipedia:Stonehenge takes you to the Wikipedia article about the famous megaliths in England.

The special Path: InterMap entry can be used to create "relative urls" in links.

The actual set of InterMap links at any site is defined by the site administrator via the Site.InterMap? page and the local/localmap.txt file; for more details, see PmWiki.CustomInterMaps.
