  • Does Wikia automatically link an interwiki link to the same language as the originating wiki?

ie)

you're on wiki-A.wikia.com, a French wiki, and you want to link to fr.wiki-B.wikia.com w:c:wiki-B will link there, or will it link to wiki-B.wikia.com (for example, an Italian wiki)
  • If you specify a language for an interwiki link, and that language is the language of the prime wiki, will that work?

ie)

w:c:en:wiki-X for wiki-X.wikia.com

Other than a group of 'fixed' interwiki links (like to Wikipedia or Community Central) no other interwiki (that includes interlanguage) links are created automatically.
In the example:
  • w:c:wiki-B:PAGENAME will link to wiki-B.wikia.com
  • w:c:fr.wiki-B:PAGENAME will link to fr.wiki-B.wikia.com
  • w:c:it.wiki-B:PAGENAME will link to it.wiki-B.wikia.com
  • w:c:wiki-B:fr:PAGENAME will link to fr.wiki-B.wikia.com if there is an interewiki set up between fr.wiki-B and wiki-B.
