See Help:Contents for an overview of all pages.

You can format your text using wiki markup. This consists of normal characters like asterisks, single quotes or equation marks which have a special function in the wiki, sometimes depending on their position. For example, to format a word in italic, you include it in two single quotes like ''this''


Mediawiki ignores normal line breaks. To start a new paragraph, leave an empty line. You can also start a newline with the HTML tag <br />.


Some HTML-Tags are allowed in MediaWiki, for example <code>, <div>, <span> and <font>.

Tools clipart.png Tip for wiki admins: If you trust your users you can allow full HTML by setting $wgRawHtml = true; in LocalSettings.php. Switch off HTML completely with $wgUserHtml = false;
