If you spend a lot of time on Wikipedia you must have come across a text which is inundated with a lot of related links. While using Wikipedia in simple mode can get rid of some of these links, the links are important as it can point out to complete and proper understanding of the subject you are looking up. This is done automatically when you type something on Wikipedia.
Wikify @ Appointment is a great tool to take any text you want and give it that special Wikipedia treatment.
Features of Wikify @ Appointment
- Just type in the random text you wanted to wikify. In the above image I have used the text from this post which you are reading.
