Reverse cross reference

For a bi-directional link, the reverse cross reference (or reverse XRef) is the component that exists on the link target and refers to the link source. By default, PageSeeder cross references are bidirectional. This means that by processing a document it is possible to know what other documents link to them.

Reverse XRefs are expressed using the <reversexref> element. 

Terminology

In link terminology, the source document refers to the document containing the original cross reference. The target document refers to the document being pointed at.

By definition, reverse cross references are bidirectional. The forward direction refers to the reference from the source to the target. The reverse direction refers to the reference from the target back to the source.
