General Notes

All text is entered as plain text, and will be converted to HTML entities as necessary. This means that <, >, &, and so on are converted for you (except in special situations where the characters are Wiki markup).

Just hit "return" twice to make a paragraph break.


Inline Formatting

//emphasis text// emphasis text
**strong text** strong text
//**emphasis and strong**// emphasis and strong
{{teletype text}} teletype text
@@--- delete text +++ insert text @@ delete text insert text
@@--- delete only @@ delete only
@@+++ insert only @@ insert only

Literal Text

If you don't want to parse some text, enclose it in two backticks (not single-quotes).


This //text// gets **parsed**.

``This //text// does not get **parsed**.``

This text gets parsed.

This //text// does not get **parsed**.


Headings

You can make various levels of heading by putting equals-signs before and after the text (all on its own line):

+++ Level 3 Heading
++++ Level 4 Heading
+++++ Level 5 Heading
++++++ Level 6 Heading

Level 3 Heading

Level 4 Heading

Level 5 Heading
Level 6 Heading

Table of Contents

To create a list of every heading, with a link to that heading, put a table of contents tag on its own line.

[[toc]]

Horizontal Rules

Use four dashes (----) to create a horizontal rule.


Lists

Bullet Lists

You can create bullet lists by starting a paragraph with one or more asterisks.

* Bullet one
 * Sub-bullet
  • Bullet one
    • Sub-bullet

Numbered Lists

Similarly, you can create numbered lists by starting a paragraph with one or more hashes.

# Numero uno
# Number two
 # Sub-item
  1. Numero uno
  2. Number two
    1. Sub-item

Mixing Bullet and Number List Items

You can mix and match bullet and number lists:

# Number one
 * Bullet
 * Bullet
# Number two
 * Bullet
 * Bullet
  * Sub-bullet
   # Sub-sub-number
   # Sub-sub-number
# Number three
 * Bullet
 * Bullet
  1. Number one
    • Bullet
    • Bullet
  2. Number two
    • Bullet
    • Bullet
      • Sub-bullet
        1. Sub-sub-number
        2. Sub-sub-number
  3. Number three
    • Bullet
    • Bullet

Definition Lists

You can create a definition (description) list with the following syntax:

: Item 1 : Something
: Item 2 : Something else
Item 1
Something
Item 2
Something else

Block Quotes

You can mark a blockquote by starting a line with one or more '>' characters, followed by a space and the text to be quoted.

This is normal text here.

> Indent me! The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
>
> Another block, leading to...
>> Second level of indenting.  This second is indented even more than the previous one.

Back to normal text.

This is normal text here.

Indent me! The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
Another block, leading to...

Second level of indenting. This second is indented even more than the previous one.

Back to normal text.


Links and Images

Wiki Links

SmashWordsTogether? to create a page link.

You can force a WikiPage? name not to be clickable by putting an exclamation mark in front of it.

WikiPage !WikiPage

WikiPage? WikiPage

You can create a "described" or "labeled" link to a wiki page by putting the page name in brackets, followed by some text.

[WikiPage Descriptive text for the link.]

Descriptive text for the link.?

URLs

Create a remote link simply by typing its URL: http://sf.net/projects/phpwebsite-comm.

If you like, enclose it in brackets to create a numbered reference and avoid cluttering the page; [http://sf.net/projects/phpwebsite-comm] becomes 1.

Or you can have a described-reference instead of a numbered reference:

[http://pear.php.net PEAR]

PEAR

Images

You can put a picture in a page by typing the URL to the picture (it must end in gif, jpg, or png).

http://c2.com/sig/wiki.gif

http://c2.com/sig/wiki.gif

You can use the described-reference URL markup to give the image an ALT tag:

[http://phpwebsite.appstate.edu/images/logos/phpwebsite_sicherman_logo1.gif phpWebSite]

phpWebSite


Code Blocks

Create code blocks by using <code>...</code> tags (each on its own line).

This is an example code block!

To create PHP blocks that get automatically colorized when you use PHP tags, simply surround the code with <code type="php">...</code> tags (the tags themselves should each be on their own lines, and no need for the <?php ... ?> tags).

 <code type="php">
 // Set up the wiki options
 $options = array();
 $options['view_url'] = "index.php?page=";

 // load the text for the requested page
 $text = implode('', file($page . '.wiki.txt'));

 // create a Wiki objext with the loaded options
 $wiki = new Text_Wiki($options);

 // transform the wiki text.
 echo $wiki->transform($text);
 </code>

<?php
// Set up the wiki options
$options = array();
$options['view_url'] = "index.php?page=";

// load the text for the requested page
$text = implode('', file($page . '.wiki.txt'));

// create a Wiki objext with the loaded options
$wiki = new Text_Wiki($options);

// transform the wiki text.
echo $wiki->transform($text);
?>

Tables

You can create tables using pairs of vertical bars:

|| cell one || cell two ||
|||| big ol' line ||
|| cell four || cell five ||
|| cell six || here's a very long cell ||
cell one cell two
big ol' line
cell four cell five
cell six here's a very long cell
|| lines must start and end || with double vertical bars || nothing ||
|| cells are separated by || double vertical bars || nothing ||
|||| you can span multiple columns by || starting each cell ||
|| with extra cell |||| separators ||
|||||| but perhaps an example is the easiest way to see ||
