Yes, we should fix wiki to provide some more useful link.

I would appreciate that very much. Those links really are too long.


I have serious doubts. I don't think we want to develop yet another Wiki

Well, HTML has a special named anchor.

<a name="tips">Useful Tips Section</a>
You should notice that a named anchor is not displayed in a special way.

To link directly to the "tips" section, add a # sign and the name of the
anchor to the end of a URL, like this:
<a href="";>
Jump to the Useful Tips Section</a>

Maybe this way? Any wiki specialist?


[http://very-long-url#section Some name here]
Shows up in text as link 'Some name here' with mark that is external link.
First blank after URL is for Mediawiki software sign that URL is done and the
rest to the ']' is the name that should appear in a text.

That is equivalent of
<a href="http://"very-long-url#section";>Some name here</a>
that will be seen as link 'Some name here', though without any mark.

BTW, while many HTML tags can be used on wiki page, the above doesn't work.
The Mediawiki will write all to page text, make all between quote marks
hyperlink, so very long URL will look even uglier. I fixed yesterday one such
