Formatting Rules

The Wiki Formatting Guide

Once you've read through this, test your formatting skills in the SandBox.

Basic formatting:

""I'm bold text!""
I'm bold text!

""I'm italic text!""
I'm italic text!

""And I'm underlined!""
And I'm underlined!

""

Wiki Extensions:

Images:
To place images on a Wiki page, use:
""D V D logo""
dvd logo
Links can be external, or internal Wiki links. You don't have to enter a link at all, and in that case just an image will be inserted. You can also use the classes 'left' and 'right' to float images left and right. You don't need to use all those attributes, only url is essential.
Tables:
To create a table use this code:
""
UNKNOWN SHORTCODE: table ({"columns"=>"3", "cellpadding"=>"1", "cells"=>"BIG;GREEN;FROGS;yes;yes;no;no;no;###"})
"" to give:

UNKNOWN SHORTCODE: table ({"columns"=>"3", "cellpadding"=>"1", "cells"=>"BIG;GREEN;FROGS;yes;yes;no;no;no;###"})


""###"" means the cell is empty.
Coloured Text:
""This is a test."" gives:

This is a test.

If you want to use hex values:

""This is another test."" to give:

This is another test.
