Link to other pages inside this Wiki

To add an internal link to a new page simply enclose a word, phrase or sentence in double square brackets:

[[This will be the new Page]]

After saving the page you can click on the now red words (This will be the new Page) and the new page will open up in edit mode. Write down what you have to say and save the new page. Done.

Link to External URL

Just enter the URL directly: If it is ugly or long append a blank and add a more descriptive word, phrase or sentence. Then enclosing it with single square brackets:

[ Transcription of the IRC]

Only the text will show up: Transcription of the IRC


Enclose titles with equal signs, 1 for first level (=), two for second level (==), etc... Titles show up in the Table of Contents at the top of the page and help navigation in larger pages.

Second Level Title

We will probably not need more fancy formatting at this stage. MAybe you want to add a bulleted list by starting the line with an asterisk '*' or a numbered list by starting with hashes '#'.

  • bulleted list
  1. autmatically
  2. numbered list
  3. good to easily reorder items

Third Level Title

For more help on formatting refer to the Online Wikipedia Help.

Discussion on the Talk Page

Each Wiki page has a talk page that can be used to comfortably dicuss what is going on without directly messing up whats already there.
