Put a level 3 heading at the end of your article 'Related articles on Designing Buildings Wiki' then a bulleted list of other articles on Designing Buildings Wiki that you think readers might be interested in. Then when you save your article, the list of related articles will automatically appear in a box to the right of your article at the top of the page.
