The markup described on this page is for the default
Text_Wiki rules; it is a combination of the WikkTikkiTavi and coWiki markup styles.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; Text_Wiki is generally smart enough to know when to convert and when not to).Just hit "return" twice to make a paragraph break. If you want to keep the same logical line but have to split it across two physical lines (such as when your editor only shows a certain number of characters per line), end the line with a backslash
\ and hit return once. This will cause the two lines to be joined on display, and the backslash will not show. (If you end a line with a backslash and a tab or space, it will not be joined with the next line, and the backslash will be printed.)—-
| ||emphasis text|
| ||strong text|
| ||emphasis and strong|
| ||<ins> insert only </ins>|
If you don't want Text_Wiki 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**.—-
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 6 Heading =
To create a list of every heading, with a link to that heading, put a table of contents tag on its own line.
Use four dashes (
----) to create a horizontal rule.—-
You can create bullet lists by starting a paragraph with one or more asterisks.
* Bullet one * Sub-bullet
Similarly, you can create numbered lists by starting a paragraph with one or more hashes.
# Numero uno # Number two # Sub-item
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
You can create a definition (description) list with the following syntax:
: Item 1 : Something : Item 2 : Something else
Item 1SomethingItem 2Something else—-
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. \ Now this the time for all good men to come to the aid of \ their country. Notice how we can continue the block-quote \ in the same "paragraph" by using a backslash at the end of \ the line. > > Another block, leading to... >> Second level of indenting. This second is indented even \ more than the previous one. Back to normal text.

Second level of indenting. This second is indented even more than the previous one.Back to normal text.—-
]] to create a page link.You can force a ]] name not to be clickable by putting an exclamation mark in front of it.
]] WikiPageYou 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.]
]]> Note: existing wiki pages must be in the ]]
pages configuration, and the ]]
view_url configuration value must be set for the linking to work.
Interwiki links are links to pages on other Wiki sites. Type the
SiteName:PageName like this:
Create a remote link simply by typing its URL: http://ciaweb.net.If you like, enclose it in brackets to create a numbered reference and avoid cluttering the page;
[http://ciaweb.net/free/] becomes 1.Or you can have a described-reference instead of a numbered reference:
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.gifYou can use the described-reference URL markup to give the image an ALT tag:
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);
// 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);
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 ||
