Nice... simply

Its simply to use, and the result is normal link to wikipedia

Not so nice in PDF´s

This extension works perfectly!

Easy to install and easy to set up, that is if nothing special is needed.

Two things though:

First: Is there an easy way to get Simply Wiki Linker to work on other pages in Joomla, as for instance, in FAQs. Like in Ioannis Maragos FAQ Book?

and, second: When creating a PDF-file of the content, is there a way to NOT show the wiki tags in the PDF?

Other than that, I have no more to add, a great product! 5 Stars!

Perfect plugin

Works as it is made for. My page is alive! :) thanks a lot! It would be very nice to add a possibility to add a link for non-exact terms >>> [[YOUSA]USA] will link term YOUSA on your page with USA on Wikipedia - and only YOUSA is visible on your page. Good Job!

It looks very similar to wikibot2 with one big difference: it is working and additional it is working in different languages. Tooks 2 minutes to install and works with the same syntx like wikipedia and wikibot2

The plugin in itself is brilliant in its simplicity to use - thus the 3 stars.

Unfortunately, I found out that the extension is somehow breaking the generated XML for the RSS 2.0 feed of my website. Simply deactivating the plugin through the backend (the author's recommended way to mask brackets) did unfortunately not suffice.

Since I rely havily on services like twitterfeed and RSSGrafitti for automated publishing to social networks (- both services in turn rely on a correctly formatted RSS feed from my site -), I had to unpublish the plugin.

Great extension

1) In the first place: I had a simple, fast and error free installation, but;

"Simple Wiki Linker" must (in my case), link to my personal wiki. (A WikiMedia installation) This unfortunately did not work well. :(

2) But one email was enough to solve the problem: I received a response within 12 hours, with a link to a new download. :)

Problem is solved, JWiki works perfectly.

Thanks Omar for your kind efforts!!!!!!

Works Well

This plugin works like it's supposed to, and I'm always pleased to see J1.6 support.

It's limited when it comes to the types of custom wikis it supports. For this, it simply appends "/wiki/" and then your search term (including "Special:Search/" if you select the "Search" linking method) to your custom wiki URL. This works if you're using Mediawiki (or I assume it works), but for something else like Tiki, it would be nice to be able to customize the output.

To make it work with a Tiki site, I ended up editing the plugin's php file to say just "/" instead of "/wiki/", and selected "direct link" linking method in the plugin's settings. Works like a charm.

On a side note, I really wish that there was a way to embed a wiki into a Joomla site.

Owner's reply: thank you for the review.

the /wiki/ subdirectory was removed in the latest version of the plugin.

This extension is fabulous!

Fast links to mine wiki with the wiki way!


Thanks and I recommend it!

Great little thing

Review of Joomla 1.6 version

Extension is exactly what the name implies: a simple to use linker to wikipedia (or any other wiki site).

Installation and syntax in editor are as easy as possible. Only hassle I had was that links did not open in new window - however, the autor solved it within 5 minutes! Great :-) Now it works to my full satisfaction. Thanks, Omar!

Great extension!
