Forum:Are links in page name mentions allowed
So, I took a look at some pages... for example this one. Note that the introductory sentence has a link in the mention of the page's name. Is this consistent throughout the wiki, or do we not have a concrete rule on this? Assuming the answer is no, then I would oppose the idea of putting links whenever the page name itself is mentioned. It just doesn't look aesthetically pleasing to me. – Ozank Cx 17:09, November 22, 2014 (UTC)
- Alright, so we don't do that on pages? Thanks for the clarification. – Ozank Cx 17:11, November 22, 2014 (UTC)
- I concur with Mol's suggestion. Also, links in section headers should be avoided. IP126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:12, November 22, 2014 (UTC)
- Yeah, all those links in the bolded name, that's my work >.< I should've reworded it into a sentence like Mol's example... the elven musicians, heralds and enhancers, it's all me...

- It's just fine to have done this - nobody ever said not to until now. It would make sense to mention something in the style guide based on the consensus of this discussion. 08:41, November 27, 2014 (UTC)
Closed - The general consensus is that if possible, the opening sentences of articles should be worded in a way such that the page name does not have a link. --LiquidTalk 08:25, December 1, 2014 (UTC)
