So I was making a wiki for a campaingn, but as I was making links some of the links would not work while others I made the same way would. Why is this?
I'll have a look as soon as I get back in front of a computer.

Okay, so it looks like some of the spaces in your links are actually the " " on the source. Replace those with normal spacebar key presses and you'll be all set. Here's a copy/paste of the source:
<p>[[The Itaka Steppes]]</p>
<p>[[Salthuurs Palace of Pleasures]]</p>
<p>[[Burtons Bloody Bowl]]</p>
<p>[[The Excavation site]]</p>
<p>[[The Golden Toof]]</p>
<p>[[Slackjaw Choppa Shoppa]]</p>
Does it have anything to do with apostrophe? Salthuur's
Campaign of the Year - 2018
It does have to do with non alpha numeric characters and non dashes. If you look at his campaign pages some of his other non working links have periods, question marks etc. One way of fixing it is using the following syntax.
[[Carls Place|Carl’s Place]]
It will show Carl's Place, even though the link is really to Carls Place.
They are among us!

Thank you guys, I will definitely check it out
Apostrophes are fine for links, Ampersands will break them every single time. Dashes are tricky because it depends on the type of dash; Hyphens are okay but En Dashes and Em Dashes are not, which can be a problem if you type everything up in a program such as Open Office or Word prior to pasting it in to the portal since some programs will convert dash types automatically. Underscores are fine too, as well as just regular parentheses, yet straight brackets and curly brackets break the link code. Quotation marks are okay to use, as are the @ symbol, commas, and exclamation points. Anything else not mentioned here will likely break the links.
Reference this link for examples:
GM of Rise of the Durnskald: Wrath of the Fallen Goddess - February 2016 CotM
GM of Core: The Ashes of Alcarna
GM of Forbidden Empire: Wrath of the Fallen Goddess - In Planning!
Depends on the type of apostrophe. The standard apostrophe will work, but the type of apostrophe you may get from copying from some pdfs are not useable. Had that issue in my recent campaign.
Quite often it's the straight apostrophe that works for HTML. If you use the curly one that you get from say Microsoft Word, that quite often breaks things! Even HTML.

The link I posted spells that out actually, although not as well.
