Available Free Link Patterns

Markout adds several different kinds of free link patterns. All of them are optional. They are:

Documents

Document free links refer to documents/pages/wiki topics, whatever you want to call 'em. They are written like this:

[[RESOURCE_NAME]]

Categories

Category free links denote (waaaaaait for it...) categories. They are written like this:

[[category:RESOURCE_NAME]]

Images

Image free links are provided to embed an image in a document. They are written like this:

[[image:RESOURCE_NAME]]

WikiWords

WikiWords are CamelCase words used to denote a resource, typically a document. They are written like this:

ResourceName

Strictly speaking, WikiWords aren't free links, but we're letting that distinction slide here. WikiWords were common in early wikis, but were found to be buggy and kludgy, and as such are increasingly being abandoned in favor of free links. Still, some folks like 'em, so they're an option.
