Emphasis: _ for italics, * for bold, _* for both, = for fixed width.
Lists: * for bullet lists, # for numbered lists, Term:<new-line> definition for definition lists.
Preformatted text: Enclose text in <pre></pre> or <verbatim></verbatim>.
Indented text: Indent the paragraph with whitespaces.
References: JoinCapitalizedWords or use square brackets for a [page link] or URL [http://cool.wiki.int/].
Preventing linking: Prefix with "~": ~DoNotHyperlink, name links like [text | URL or pagename].
Misc: "!", "!!", "!!!" make headings, "%%%" or "<br>" makes a linebreak, "----" makes a horizontal rule.
Allowed HTML tags: b big i small tt em strong abbr acronym cite
code dfn kbd samp
var sup sub
- All special non-whitespace HTML characters are displayed as-is. Exceptions below.
- See Emphasis.
- There's no syntax for font tags or color attributes.
The tilde '~' is the Escape Character:
- A single tilde '~' followed by nothing gets rendered as a single tilde. => ~
- Two tilde '~~' get rendered as a single tilde. => ~
- A single tilde before a link ('~http://foo.bar') prevents linking.
- Two tildes before a link ('~~http://foo.bar') produce a tilde
followed by the hyperlinked URL. => ~http://foo.bar
- A tilde inside an URL gets removed, unless it's formatted inside
[ ] brackets. Two tildes inside an URL (without brackets) become a single tilde. => http://foo.bar/~user or http://foo.bar/~user
- Special non-ascii or non-latin characters are printed as-is only if supported
by the native wiki CHARSET. Add such characters on a non-supported CHARSET with the Help:RawHtmlPlugin if it is enabled by the Admin and e.g. the &#num; syntax.
E.g. These japanese euc-jp chars 'から 新規ページ' on this Plugin SystemInfo failed. unknown argument “CHARSET” to SystemInfo wiki. And with the plugin:Plugin RawHtml disabled. Raw HTML is only allowed in locked pages.
<?plugin RawHtml から 新規ページ ?>
And this is how it should look:
- Don't indent paragraphs
- Words wrap and fill as needed
- Use blank lines as separators
- Four or more minus signs make a horizontal rule
- %%% or <br> makes a linebreak (in headings and lists too)
asterisk for first level
- indented asterisk (indent at least two spaces) for second level, etc.
- Use *, -, + or o for bullet lists, # for numbered lists (mix at will)
as in the <DL><DT><DD> list
- Items may contain multiple paragraphs and other multi-lined content, just indent the items
- '!' at the start of a line makes a small heading
- '!!' at the start of a line makes a medium heading
- '!!!' at the start of a line makes a large heading
Place preformatted lines inside <pre>:
<pre> Preformatted text. WikiLinks still work. </pre>
Preformatted text. WikiLinks still work.
If you want text with no Wiki interaction, use the <verbatim> tag:
<verbatim> Preformatted text. WikiLinks do not work. </verbatim>
Preformatted text. WikiLinks do not work.
Two or more whitespaces signal indented text. Indents may be nested.
This is an indented block of text.
This block is even more indented.
E-mail style block-quoting is supported as well:
> This is block-quoted text.
This is block-quoted text.
- Use an underscore (_) for emphasis (usually italics)
- Use an asterisk (*) for strong emphasis (usually bold)
- Mix them at will: bold italics
Emphasis can be used multiple times within a paragraph, but cannot cross paragraph boundaries:
will not work_
- Hyperlinks to other pages within the Wiki are made by placing the page name in square brackets: this is a page link or UsingWikiWords (preferred)
- Hyperlinks to external pages are done like this: http://www.wcsb.org/
- You can name the links by providing a name, a bar (|) and then the hyperlink or pagename: PhpWiki home page --- the front page
- You can suppress linking to old-style references and URIs by preceding the word with a '~', e.g. NotLinkedAsWikiName, http://not.linked.to/
- Also, the old way of linking URL's is still supported: precede URLs with "http:", "ftp:" or "mailto:" to create links automatically as in: http://c2.com/
- URLs ending with .png, .gif, or .jpg are inlined if in square brackets, by themselves:
In-page hyperlinks are made by placing a named anchor and referring to the anchor in a hyperlink:
- #[foo]: An anchor around the text "foo" with id "foo".
- #[|foo]: An empty anchor with id "foo".
- #[howdy|foo]: An anchor around the text "howdy" with id "foo".
- References to name anchors are made thusly:
[##hyperlinks], [OtherPage#foo], [named|OtherPage#foo].
- Semantic links are named links like: is_a::WikiPage and attributes like size:-4000.
- A pagelink within square brackets starting with ":" is not backlinked.
Definition list style tables are written just like definition lists, except that you replace the trailing colon on the term with a "pipe" (|).
Term 1 | Definition 1 begins here. Term 1.1 | Definition 1.1 Term 1.2 | Definition 1.2 This is part of definition 1. Term 2 | Here's definition 2.
Definition 1 begins here.
Term 1.1 Definition 1.1 Term 1.2 Definition 1.2
This is part of definition 1.
Term 2 Here's definition 2.
- Old-style tables are supported through the Help:OldStyleTablePlugin
HTML Mark-Up Language
- Some in-line markup is allowed through the use of HTML tags:
b, big, i, small,
tt, em, strong,
abbr, acronym, cite,
code, dfn, kbd, samp, var, sup and sub
- < and > are themselves
- The & characters will not work
Creating various kinds of special links
- See Help:MagicPhpWikiURLs for gory details on how to write various kind of wiki maintenance and other special links.
Several plugins permit embedding additional functionality to Wiki pages. For example,
<?plugin BackLinks page=HomePage info=hits ?>
- For more information on plugins see Help:WikiPlugin, and PluginManager for a list of all plugins.
