Editing a Wiki Page (this is a large header, we'll call it h1)

The following is a brief summary of some Wiki elements. For a full description, with examples, check out the Wikipedia Wiki_markup guide and How_to_edit_a_page Guide

Wiki formatting is so old-fashioned and confusing (h2)

Click EDIT (in the tab above) to see the formatting tags (h3)

Here's a little h6

Text

You can italicize text by putting 2 apostrophes on each side.

3 apostrophes will embolden the text.

5 apostrophes will embolden and italicize the text.

(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything special --
the last pair are just 'left over ones' that are included as part of the text.)

Centered text
* Please note the American spelling of "center".

The blockquote command formats block quotations, typically by surrounding them with whitespace and a slightly different font.

Lists

  • Unordered lists are easy to do:
    • Start every line with a star (asterisk).
      • More stars indicate a deeper level.
    Previous item continues.
    • A newline
  • 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

A newline marks the end of the list.

  1. New numbering starts with 1.

Table
