The InterMap is a system for defining links between WikiWikiWeb sites that was first developed by UseMod:UseModWiki and Meatball:MeatballWiki. Inter Map links have the form MapPrefix:Page, where the host prefix is converted to a partial URL based on entries in the site's intermap.txt and localmap.txt files.

The default intermap.txt distributed with Pm Wiki (in the scripts/ directory) includes the following Inter Map entries:


Thus, PmWiki:Variables becomes a link to the Pm Wiki.Variables page on the official Pm Wiki web site, Wiki:FrontPage is a link to the front page of the first Wiki Wiki Web, and Wikipedia:Stonehenge takes you to the Wikipedia article about the famous megaliths in England.

The special Path: Inter Map entry can be used to create "relative urls" in links.

The actual set of Inter Map links at any site is defined by the site administrator; for more details, see PmWiki.CustomInterMaps.
