How can I show incoming links on the wiki page itself in SharePoint 2010?

Currently, there is a link on the right like in the picture below that allows you to navigate to a page that only has incoming links. I would like to be able to display the incoming links on the wiki page itself to make the wiki as a whole easier to navigate.

If you are interested int he JQuery and CEWP then you can try it.

<script src="http://ajax.microsoft.com/ajax/jquery/jquery-1.4.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() { 

function addLinks(){

//get the url for the incoming links page
var starturl = SP.Utilities.Utility.getLayoutsPageUrl('BackLinks.aspx');

var builder = new SP.Utilities.UrlBuilder(starturl);
builder.addKeyValueQueryString('List', (new SP.Guid(_spPageContextInfo.pageListId)).toString());
builder.addKeyValueQueryString('ID', _spPageContextInfo.pageItemId.toString());
var u = builder.get_url();

//create a target container and load it with the incoming links 
//filtered to show the links list only 

var l = $("<div id='incomingLinks' style='border-top: solid 1px silver'>").load(u + " #MSO_ContentTable .ms-bodyareacell", function(){

l.css("font-size", "11pt").find("a").css("padding-left", "11px").css("font-size", "11pt");

//append the new container to the wiki content 


ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(addLinks, "sp.js"); 


Show Incoming Links on a Wiki Page - for SharePoint 2010



You need to create either custom webpart or use JavaScript.

Here is a free web part which states what you does. Note - I haven't tested this.

JavaScript approach is explained on this thread.

  • Can you add the relevant information from the links to your answer and use the link as a source of additional information? meta.stackexchange.com/q/8231/189763 Would it be necessary to add this webpart or javascript on each wiki page? – Ryan Gates Nov 3 '14 at 18:18
  • @RyanGates yes if you want to go the hard way. Best practice is to add this to the wiki page layout and create pages out of that. – Amal Hashim Nov 3 '14 at 18:20
