    Why doesn't a link show up at Greg's name in the Keystone Watch Case article (near the top)?

    The link to articles is automatic only for those in the Default namespace.

    All other articles can be referenced by enclosing the article title in the namespace reference. i.e. [help]Greg Frauenhoff[/help] like here Greg Frauenhoff.

    The green question mark button in the editor tools will wrap text in HELP tags. The book image button will do the same thing for articles in the Book namespace. The Vault door button does this explicitly for the Default namespace where we have our bookshelf type topic level. However, articles in the bookshelves are automatically linked.

    I have not experimented with it very much, but the triangle with holes in it (that is meant to look like a draftman's template) should insert the article named in the text of the post as boilerplate, when wrapped around the title of a boilerplate article. The Template namespace has much more powerful uses in the context of articles when used with parameters.

    Greg is also a past V.P. of Chapter 174, Pocket Horology. Is Greg an NAWCC Fellow yet? If not, Chapter 174 has some work to do. It's too late for this year, but we can get the ball rolling for next year.
