Basic MediWiki page editing, formatting and creation

Create a inner wiki link on page with two brackets around the link [[link]]

Create an external link by typing in the fully qualified address and link text in single brackets </nowiki>[link text]</nowiki>

When you create the link, click it to create the page.

=== around text will create headlines to the number of = characters (It will also auto-generate a table of contents if you have multple levels)

bold text by using three feet marks '''

when you want to create a new line, enter two paragraph returns

bullet lists begin with an asterisk

  • List item 1
  • List item 2
  • List item 3

Numbered lists begin with a #

  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
  3. Item 3

Using an image as a link to a page:

You can add a pre-formatted code-style box by starting a line with a space or using the <pre></pre> tags around your text.

Code Sample

Tables are a little trickier, using curly braces and pipes and stuff. See the Site of Sites page for an example.
