Wikipedia:How to edit a page

You can look at "edit" of this page to see how the following simple markup works:

Top Header

Second: This is how you can do a section header

Third: Which can be nested by adding more equal signs

Fourth Header

The headings will be put into a table of contents at the top, but only when the page has 4 or more section headers (nested or not).

  • This is an unordered (bullet) list.
    • These can also be nested
  1. This is an ordered (numbered) list
    1. I think these can be nested as well
    2. They can
  2. Next ordered (numbered) list
    1. Nested
    2. Nested

This will be indented
Indented more

Lines starting with a space will be "preformatted", and placed in one of those typical dotted boxes.

Italic text

bold text

italic and bold

URLs are automaticly recognized, but there are more possibilities. For example: http://some.domain/page.html shows the URL 'as is' [1] shows up as an increasing number alternative text shows up as "alternative text"

other wiki page link to other_wiki_page, shows as "other wiki page" alternative text link to other_wiki_page, shows as "alternative text"

this will stop the wiki from applying formatting; useful if you don't want URLs turned into links, for instance: http://some.domain/page.html

Alternatively, you can use the standard HTML tags.

Third Level: You unnest by removing one level of equal signs

Text editing

Deleting text

Instead of deleting sentence of a paragraph of text, instead first use <del> and </del>:

So that text stays visible at first until some of the senior admins decides what to do with that text.

Adding Colors

You can color a text by placing it between <span style="color:Red;"> </span> tags. In this example, the color is red. Below is a list containing other colors you can use. Simply copy a line, and type the text you want to color between the ">" and the "</span>".
