1. Edit MainMenu tiddler
2. Add menu items in [[]]

Adding External Links

Links to external sites can be entered in the following form:
[[NY Times|­htt­p:/­/ww­w.n­yti­]]

This displays as a link with the title "NY Times"

Tiddler Links

To add a link from tiddler to another, enclose the name of the destin­ation tiddler in [[]] for example, [[Dest­ination Tiddler Name]].

Where names are entered with multiple capital letters (WikiW­ords), a link is provided automa­tic­ally.

To prevent WikiWords from being converted to links, use a tilde (~) character at the front of the word.

Thank you for this cheat-sheet. Came in quite handy!

Thanks! It'll be great to add some info about shadow tiddlers - for example
in a standard TiddlyWiki, the MarkupPostHead shadow tiddler contains HTML that is inserted at the end of the <head> section of the TiddlyWiki HTML.
