Full documentation has been moved to FormattingRulesFull. Experiment in the SandBox. - BaxilDragon

Simple Formatting

**I'm bold**, //I'm italic text!//, ##monospace text##
I'm bold ,     I'm italic text!,       monospace text
"Escape" (nullify) code by enclosing it in two sets of double quotes:
""**not bold**"" = **not bold**


To create a link to a wiki page you can use any of the following options:
  1. type a WikiName:
    FormattingRules = FormattingRules
  2. add a forced link surrounding the page name by [[ and ]] (everything after the first space will be shown as description):
    [[SandBox Test your formatting skills]] = Test your formatting skills
  3. add an image with a link (see instructions below).

To link to external pages, you can do any of the following:
  1. type a URL inside the page:
    http://www.example.com = http://www.example.com
  2. add a forced link surrounding the URL by [[ and ]] (everything after the first space will be shown as description):
    [[http://example.com/jenna/ Jenna's Home Page]] = Jenna's Home Page
    [[mail@example.com Write me!]] = mail@example.com Write me!
  3. add an image with a link (see instructions below);
  4. add an interwiki link (browse the list of available interwiki tags):
    e.g. WikiPedia:WikkaWiki = WikiPedia:WikkaWiki

Headers, spacing, lines


Use between five = (for the biggest header) and two = (for the smallest header) on both sides of a text to render it as a header.
====== Really big header ======

Really big header


... down to ...
== Smallish header ==
Smallish header


Horizontal rule:
----


Forced line break:
foo --- bar
foo
bar

Lists and indents


You can indent text using a ~, a tab or 4 spaces (which will auto-convert into a tab).

~This text is indented
~~This text is double-indented
    This text is also indented

This text is indented
This text is double-indented
This text is also indented

To create bulleted/ordered lists, use the following markup (you can always use 4 spaces instead of a ~):

Bulleted lists
~- Line one
~- Line two

Numbered lists
~1) Line one
~1) Line two
  1. Line one
  2. Line two

For sublists, increase the number of tildes:

~- Line one
~~- Subline one
~- Line two

Images


To place images on a Wiki page, you can use the image action.

Example:
{{image class="center" alt="DVD logo" title="An Image Link" url="images/dvdvideo.gif" link="RecentChanges"}}
dvd logo

Links can be external, or internal Wiki links. You don't need to enter a link at all, and in that case just an image will be inserted. You can use the optional classes left and right to float images left and right. You don't need to use all those attributes, only url is required while alt is recommended for accessibility.

Floats


To create a left floated box, use two < characters before and after the block.

Example:
<<Some text in a left-floated box hanging around<< Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler.

Some text in a left-floated box hanging around
Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler.

 
To create a right floated box, use two > characters before and after the block.

Example:
>>Some text in a right-floated box hanging around>> Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler.

Some text in a right-floated box hanging around
Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler. Some more text as a filler.

 
Use ::c:: to clear floated blocks.
