The following is just a quick cheat sheet of wiki formating tips. For the best information go to the main wiki at wikimedia


Creating a New Page

Wiki pages are creating by creating a link before the page!

To create a new page, simply edit an existing page and add an internal link to the new page like [[My New Page]]. Then simply click on the link!

Text

What it looks like What you type
Emphasize ''Emphasize''
Emphasize strongly '''Emphasize strongly'''
'Emphasize very strongly' ''''Emphasize very strongly''''


New Lines

New lines are specifiy by adding a blank line in between text. Consectutive lines of text have no effect on formatting.

Alteratively you can add a <br/> tag to force a line break. Please include the slash in there as that is correct XML formatting.

Sections

Sections show up in the table of contents.

What it looks like What you type
Section == Section ==
Subsection === Subsection ===
Sub-Subsection === Sub-Subsection ===

Images

All images have to be uploaded to be used.

To link to an image just make an internal link to it like [[Image:Frank_kozik-i-1.jpg]]. It is recommend that you specify alternate text by adding a piped option like [[Image:Frank_kozik-i-1.jpg|Frank Kozik]].

Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination


Thumnbnails

Don't upload image thumbnails! Let the system deal with that.

If the images are large, it is really important to use thumbnails. To this just add the piped thumb option along with a size like [[Image:Frank_kozik-i-1.jpg|thumb|64px]]

By default, the thumbnail with appear on the right side of the page and the text will wrap around it. You can specify position arguments to change this.

Aligning Images

Frank kozik-i-1.jpg

Images can be put on the left, right or center by adding the piped option like [[Image:Frank_kozik-i-1.jpg|thumb|64px|left]].


Clearing text wrapping

We have a template to help prevent images from running into text that may follow it and otherwise wrap around the text.

Just add {{clr}} at the point in the document where you want the wrapping to end.

Boxes

The easy way to make a box is to start a line with a space.
