Enhancing the Look of Text on the Wiki
- Wikis use simple wiki text (or sometimes called wiki markup) codes to enhance and format text. Wiki code is also more simple than complicated html code. Here are some examples:
- ITALIC: two apostrophes around text (''italicize'') will italicize text.
- BOLD: three apostrophes around text ('''embolden''') will embolden text.
- ITALIC & BOLD: five apostrophes around text ('''''italicize and embolden''''') will italize and embolden.
- INDENT: a colon (:) will indent a line (like these lines).
- DOUBLE INDENT: two colons will indent a line twice.
- BULLET: an asterisk (*) at the beginning of a line will add a bullet to your text (e.g., * your text).
- BOLD OUT ENTIRE LINE: a semi-colon (;) at the beginning of a line will embolden the entire line, and creates a line break at the end.
- In addition, wikis do not automatically assume a line break between one line of text and the next. To force a line break, use a colon (:) or bullet (*) at the beginning of each line, or add an extra space between the lines. If you cut and paste text from elsewhere, you may need to make these adjustments.
- Link text externally or internally by using brackets:
- To create an external link such as USSF, type/paste the url plus a space plus a name for your link inside single brackets [http://www.ussf2007.org USSF]
- To create an internal link such as the Detroit Local Organizing Committee page on this wiki, type/paste the name of a wiki page inside double brackets [[Detroit Local Organizing Committee]].
