link to the building itself from archiplanet to greatbuildin

HI all,

I recoginezed the links from Archiplanet to Greatbuildings are all to the main page on greatbuildings.com. Wouldnt it be more handy to link direct to the particular building itself? I can make a small bot to do this for every building (if the building exists on Greatbuildings.com of course)

Do you like that?

Interesting suggestion - we always want to improve the cross-connection!

What link are you referring to specifically? On the Archiplanet building pages for which there are also buildings in GreatBuildings, such as http://www.archiplanet.org/wiki/Eiffel_Tower , there should be an existing link in the building article that goes right to the GreatBuildings page for that building.

There is a link in the related sites sidebar to the GreatBuildings main page, but that sidebar is a constant, the same for every article at Archiplanet regardless of whether it is about a GreatBuildings building.

Does this clarify anything?

It is clear, I meant the left sidebar indeed. But as a fanatic wikipedia user, I am used to the left sidebar to go fast to other pages from the same subject. It would be so much more easy navigation if the link in the left sidebar also goes straight to the building itself; why not do that?
