Basics

  • You have to login before editing.
  • You can test out your wiki editing in the Alchemist Lab
  • To change existing text: click edit in the top menu.
  • To add a new page:
    • insert a link to a non-existing page in an existing one,
    • by surrounding the new page name with double square brackets [[Like This]],
    • then click that link and fill the new page.

Formatting in Wiki

Basics
Normal text stays normal text
double or triple single quote's makes:
''italics'' becomes italics
'''bold text''' becomes bold

<nowiki>text with [[ stuff used</nowiki>


headers and contents box
To tag headers, use:
=Heading level 1=
==Heading level 2==
===Heading level 3===

If three or more heading lines occur on a page,
automatically a content box is added



and did you notice the buttons
at the top of the edit box?

HTML
HTML also works.

  • Especially <br> is nice

for line breaking.

  • the HTML table tags work very nice too



Lists
when you type something like this:
* a bullet list
* b bullet list
** b2 bullet list
** b3 bullet list
* c bullet list

wiki makes this from it

  • a bullet list
  • b bullet list
    • b2 bullet list
    • b3 bullet list
  • c bullet list

Categories

  • Are used to label groups of individual pages and list them automatically on special category-pages.
  • To label a page to be of a certain category, you edit the page,
    • and then add [[Category:Category Name]]
  • To start a sub-category, you edit the sub-category page
  • To link to a category page, you edit a page
    • and then add [[:Category:Category Name]] or [[:Category:Category Name|Category Name]]
    • so the diference between 'linking to' and 'labeling as' can be as much as a single colon ":".
