Advanced Formatting

This page demonstrates some useful tricks in wiki. To see more detailed description, follow Documentation Index or use Search.

Headers and footnotes

In my small2 text, I explain how to use the new markups 1 coming with this recipe.

1.  this is a first header

1.1  this is a second header

2.  this is a first header too

1 These objects are the most emphasized words in this sentence.

2 This is relative of course.

Rename and delete

To rename the title of a page, add the string (:title New title:) at the beginning of that page. If you want to rename a whole page, including links to it:

  • Create a new page with a desirable title.
  • Copy-Paste the old page to a new one. Save a new one.
  • Find all pages which are linked to this page.
  • Change all links.
  • Delete the old page. To permanently delete the old page, send an e-mail to webmaster with this query. You can remove the page from the wiki, see Deleting Pages. To remove a page, edit the page, select (highlight) all text in the edit textarea and replace it with the single word
delete

Note that it may be a good idea to add a comment to the field summary explaining why you deleted the page. (The field summary is usually found just below the edit textarea).

Insert a picture or a link to the attached file

You can find more information in Images and Uploads. To insert a picture, you should firstly upload it. There are two possible ways to upload files:

  • If you're admin, press the button "Attach" at the top of your page and follow instructions.
  • If you're not admin, send an email to webmaster with your files and query.

To show an image, type Attach:image.jpg | Description of the image. To show image as a link, type [[Attach:image.jpg]].
