Begging Link

A BeggingLink has no corresponding page, it typically leads to the EditForm. To notify the user of this situation the BeggingLink is not shown like a normal link, but there are various ways to show them. ProWiki supports them all. You may choose from the available options.

Alternatives for displaying the BeggingLink:

Options: See also:
  • WantedPage -- a page that is addressed by a begging link


A larger number of BeggingLinks in a wiki are sign of low quality. Users should avoid to create numerous BeggingLinks (except if they create the page and meaningful content immediately afterwards) because it needs work of other authors to either remove the link or create the WantedPage.
