Wiki Formatting[edit source]

If you are already familiar with wiki markup and how to edit wiki articles in general (e.g. Wikipedia articles), then you may not need to read this section.

Otherwise, here are some basic tips on wiki formatting:

Wiki code Result
'''Bold text''' Bold text
''Italic text'' Italic text
'''''Bold and italic text''''' Bold and italic text
''''This is bold'''' because of the outside group of 3 single-quotes (denoting '''bold''' text), and the inner single quotes that stand alone, which simply display the single-quotes. 'This is bold' because of the outside group of 3 single-quotes (denoting bold text), and the inner single quotes that stand alone, which simply display the single-quotes.
== Section headings ==

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

=== Subsection ===
Using more equal-signs creates a subsection.

==== A smaller subsection ====
Don't skip levels, like from two to four equal-signs.

Start with 2 equal-signs, NOT 1; using 1 creates an H1 tag, which is reserved for the page's title.
