There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1]

PESWiki page formatting is done with There was an error working with the wiki: Code[4], so you don't need to learn There was an error working with the wiki: Code[5]. A brief table of these topic can be found at PESWiki:Quick guide.

Wikitext or Wiki markup

Writing for PESWiki articles is a bit different from writing on a standard word processor. Instead of a strict "what you see is what you get" approach (WYSIWYG), wiki uses a simple built-in There was an error working with the wiki: Code[2] designed for ease of editing. The approach is similar to writing HTML for web pages, but the codes are much simpler.

Bold and italics

The most commonly used wiki tags are bold and italics. Bolding and italicizing is done by surrounding a word or phrase with multiple apostrophes ('):

italics appears as italics. (2 apostrophes on both sides)

bold appears as bold. (3 apostrophes on both sides)

'bolded italics' appears as 'bolded italics'. (5 apostrophes on both sides)

It is a PESWiki convention to bold the subject of an article when it is first mentioned in the article. If there are alternatives to the title the same applies. Another PESWiki convention is to italicize book, movie and computer/video game titles. If the first mention of the subject of an article is also a book or movie title then 'bold italics' is used.

Headings and subheadings

Headings and subheadings are an easy way to improve the organization of an article. If you can see two or more distinct topics being discussed, you can break up the article by inserting a heading for each There was an error working with the wiki: Code[3].

Headings can be created like this:

==Top level heading== (2 equals signs)

===Subheading=== (3 equals signs)

====Another level down==== (4 equals signs)

If an article has at least four headings, a table of contents will automatically be generated. Try creating a heading in the Sandbox. It will be added automatically to the table of contents for the page, assuming three others already exist.
