Insert a link to a file

Inserting a link to a file may be accomplished in two ways:

  • Drag and drop
  • Type or paste the path and use a script

Drag and drop

  • Locate the file in Windows Explorer
  • Drag and drop it onto the WikidPad editor pane
  • WikidPad will insert the full path name and automatically encode it properly, thus:
file:///C|/Program%20Files/WikidPad/user_extensions/WikidPadHooks.py

Type or paste and use a script

  • Type or paste the full path to the file, including drive designation, into the WikiWord you are working on in the editor:
C:\Program Files\WikidPad\user_extensions\WikidPadHooks.py
  • Type, paste or import the following python script snippet into the same WikiWord:
<% lib.encodeSelection(editor) %>
  • Click and drag to select the entire pathname
  • Press CTRL+e to execute the python script and WikidPad will insert the full path name and automatically encode it properly
file:///C|/Program%20Files/WikidPad/user_extensions/WikidPadHooks.py
