Or, for an effect as shown at
note the HomePage in the side bar has a dotted border controlled by css
(as an extra, the links gain tool tips)
The way this works is to look for self-referencing links, ie a page name
that refers to the current page. The script then substitutes a different
$WikiPageExistsFmt, so it always 'just works' everywhere.
If that's what you are after, download the WikiPresentations module
and use just the maori.php and smartquotes.php scripts from
Or you can extract the bit of code that checks for self-referencing
links and use that.
Hope this helps. If you have any questions, let me know.
