[edit] Most frequent Wiki markup explained

Here are the most frequently used types of wiki markup. If you need more help see Wikitext examples.

What it looks like What you type
You can italicize text by putting 2

apostrophes on each side. 3 apostrophes will embolden the text.

You can ''italicize text'' by putting 2
apostrophes on each side. 3 apostrophes
will embolden '''the text'''.
You should "sign" your comments on talk pages:
  • Three tildes give your user name: User (talk)
  • Four tildes give your user name plus date/time: User (talk) 07:46, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
  • Five tildes give the date/time alone: 07:46, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Section headings

What it looks like What you type
Section headings

Headings organize your writing into sections. The Wiki software can automatically generate a table of contents from them.

Subsection

Using more equals signs creates a subsection.

A smaller subsection

Don't skip levels, like from two to four equals signs.

Start with 2 equals signs not 1 because 1 creates H1 tags which should be reserved for page title.

[edit] Lists and indents

What it looks like What you type
  • Unordered lists are easy to do:
    • Start every line with a star.
      • More stars indicate a deeper level.
  • Previous item continues.
    • A new line
  • in a list

marks the end of the list.

  • Of course you can start again.

  1. Numbered lists are:
    1. Very organized
    2. Easy to follow
  2. Previous item continues

A new line marks the end of the list.

  1. New numbering starts with 1.
# ''Numbered lists'' are:

A colon (:) indents a line or paragraph.

A newline starts a new paragraph.
Often used for discussion on talk pages.

We use 1 colon to indent once.
We use 2 colons to indent twice.
3 colons to indent 3 times, and so on.
