Subject: Should i use NS-separator in front of wikilink or not?
I know that from a technical point of view it is regardless if i write links like this:
[[firstns:secondns:pagename]]
or this:
[[:firstns:secondns:pagename]]
(note the colon at the beginning)

When placing images in the editor, Dokuwiki always uses absolute links with colon first: {{:firtns:secondns:imagename.jpg|}}

Linking is the greatest strength of a Wiki, but unfortunately also the greatest weak spot...

I prefer the notation with the leading colon, because it is better indicated that there is an absolute addressing. For me, the leading colon symbolizes the root namespace.
By Patreon.com a few eurons can be fed into the code phasers of
the DokuWiki engine. Besides, Andi's posts are worth reading.
