Refactor by Backlinking

Problem: When one page spawns another, but visitors to the other lose understanding because they don't know about the original page.

Use backlinks at the top of the page:

  • Include a link back to the original page.
  • Start the new page with 1 or 2 sentences explaining why the new page was created.
  • Clearly and visually demark the explanation.
    • use indented block text, or text emphasis, or a summary at the top of the page.
      • See syntax for more on formatting text.
