Mount Wiki:Syntax

From Mount Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Formatting Mount Wiki articles is a bit different from writing on a standard word processor. Instead of a strict 'what you see is what you get approach', Mount Wiki uses text codes to create particular elements of the page (e.g. headings). This "language" is known as Wikitext (or Wiki-markup) and is designed for ease of editing.


[edit] Bold and italics

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

You type You get
''italic'' italic



'''''bold italic'''''

bold italic

On Mount Wiki, the names of an article's subject are written in bold when they are first mentioned in the article. For example, the article Rimpfischhorn begins:

The Rimpfischhorn (4,199 m) is a mountain in the Pennine Alps of Switzerland.

Italics are used when a village, hut, mountain... has other names in other languages. For example, the article Valais begins with:

The 'Valais (German: Wallis) is one of the 26 cantons of Switzerland in the southwestern part of the country.

[edit] 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 section.

Headings can be created like this:

You type You get

== Heading ==

[edit] Heading

=== Subheading ===

[edit] Subheading

If an article has at least four headings, a table of contents will automatically be generated. You can try this out on your own userpage.

wh0cd470440 <a href=>kamagra</a> <a href=>medrol generic</a> <a href=>celexa</a> <a href=>toradol</a> <a href=>buy nolvadex</a> <a href=>propecia for less</a> <a href=>stromectol</a>

[edit] Using images

Images uploaded to Mount Wiki are automatically placed into the file namespace, a namespace of Mount Wiki. This means that image page names start with the prefix "File:". To incorporate your image into an article you need to use the image syntax. As an example in its simplest form:

[[File:Example.png|thumb|right|Example image caption]]

Where the image is called Example.png. Using "thumb" forces the creation of a thumbnail; replace "Example image caption" with a suitable caption.

The extendad image syntax page is available on another page that can be visited here.

[edit] Categories

You can also put the article in a category with others in a related topic. Just type [[Category:]], and put the name of the category between the colon and the brackets.

It is very important to put in the correct categories so that other people can easily find your work. The best way to find which categories to put in is to look at pages on similar subjects, and check which categories they use. For example if you write an article about a type of tree, you may look at an article on another type of tree to see which categories could be appropriate.
