Help on formatting

OpenWiki offers many formatting rules that editors can use for creating pages.

Contents

The Basics

  • Do not indent paragraphs.

  • Words wrap and fill as needed.

  • Leave a blank line between paragraphs.

  • Type 4 or more minus/dash/hyphen (-) characters to create a horizontal rule.

  • URL's and email addresses are automatically hyperlinked.

  • Wiki names are automatically hyperlinked. A wiki name conforms to the link pattern, which basically is a word containing more than one capital letter where the capitals aren't right next to each other. In other words, simply SmashWordsTogetherLikeSo.

That's basically all you need to know to get started. Following are more basic rules. For advanced formatting rules see Special:Help On Editing.

Bold, Italic, Underscore, Strikethrough

To mark text as bold enclose text by two asterisks (*) characters on both sides. To mark text as italic enclose text by two slash (/) characters on both sides. To mark text underlined enclose text by two underscore (_) characters on both sides. To mark text strikethrough enclose text by two dash (-) characters on both sides.

**Some bold text**, //some italic text//, and **//some bold and italic text//**
__Some underlined text__ --Some strikethrough text--

will appear as:

Some bold text, some italic text, and some bold and italic text
Some underlined text Some strikethrough text

OpenWiki also supports the "old" style of placing emphasis on text which is used by several original wikis.

''2 quotes are italic'', '''3 quotes are bold''', and '''''5 quotes are bold and italic'''''

will appear as:

2 quotes are italic, 3 quotes are bold, and 5 quotes are bold and italic

Note: whether the "new" and/or "old" style of placing emphasis on text is in effect depends on the system options as configured by the administrator of this site.

Superscript, Subscript

To mark text in superscript enclose text by two ^ characters on both sides. To mark text in subscript enclose text by two v characters on both sides.

2^^3^^ + 10^^2^^ = 108

2Hvv2vv + Ovv2vv = 2Hvv2vvO

will appear as:

23 + 102 = 108

H2 + O2 = 2H2O

Lists

All lists start with 2 spaces at the beginning of a line. Sublists are created by adding an additional 2 spaces for every level that you want to add. See also Special:HelpOnLists.

  ; Term One : Definition for One (indented)
  ; Term Two : Definition for Two (indented)
  ; Term Three : Definition for Three (indented)
    ; Term (indented) : Definition (indented two levels)
      ; Term (indented twice) : Definition (indented to third level)

Term Two
Definition for Two (indented)
Term Three
Definition for Three (indented)
Term (indented)
Definition (indented two levels)
Term (indented twice)

Mixing Lists

You can also mix lists, for example:

  * First bulleted item
  * Second bulleted item
    1. First subitem of **second item**
       Some more text about first subitem....
       End of this subitem.
    1. Second subitem of **second item**
  * Last bulleted item

will appear as:

  • First bulleted item
  • Second bulleted item
    1. First subitem of second item
      Some more text about first subitem....
      End of this subitem.
    2. Second subitem of second item
  • Last bulleted item

Indented text

  : Paragraph to be indented (quote-block)
    : Paragraph indented more
      : Paragraph indented to third level

will appear as:

Paragraph to be indented (quote-block)
Paragraph indented more
Paragraph indented to third level

Preformatted text

Sourcecode

If you want to display sourcecode use the <code> tag or enclose the source by three acolades (e.g. {{{some code}}}).

Singleline example:
The command {{{foo := bar + 1;}}} will add 1 to bar and assign it to foo.    

will appear as:

The command foo := bar + 1; will add 1 to bar and assign it to foo.

Multiline example:
{{{
begin
    foo := bar + 1;
end;
}}}

will appear as:

begin
    foo := bar + 1;
end;

Note that within sourcecode most features won't work, such as: automatic hyperlinking of URLs, WikiNames, making text italic, etc. What still does work within sourcecode is the ability to highlight text by using three single quotes and the ability to use the <nowiki> tag.

Example:
<code>
begin
    '''foo := bar + 1;'''
    foo := foo << 1;
    return foo;
end;
</code>

will appear as:

begin
    foo := bar + 1;
    foo := foo << 1;
    return foo;
end;

Tables

|| **ID** || **Name** || **Description** ||
|| 123 || John Foo || Some foo user ||
|| 456 || Mary Richardson || Contact person from Foo Corp. ||

will appear as:

ID Name Description
123 John Foo Some foo user
456 Mary Richardson Contact person from Foo Corp.

Infoboxes

{{Infobox Equation
|name = My name for infobox
|[Special:HelpOnLinking Link param] = [Special:HelpOnLinking Link value]]
|Bold param = Bold value
...
|''Italic param'' = ''Italic value''
}}

will appear as:

My name for infobox
