It is easy to create a Wiki page. Don't get frustrated about the "special signs", they are just for Nerds. You don't need them. Just give it a try it on WikiPlayGround. You press edit in the top right corner, and then you have an ascii file where you can start hacking. If you want to see advanced features, visit UNIK4700test.

What you basically do is writing a text, and if you want to format the text, then you highlight it and click on any of the icons which are above the text. These are, from left to right:

  1. italic writing
  2. bold writing
  3. Link? to an internal wiki page, either a new page or an existing page
  4. External link to a Web page, here UNIK.no
  5. Attach a file (.pdf, .doc) or a graphic, simply by Attach:filename.doc
  6. make a phrase in a sentence bigger
  7. reduce a phrase in a sentence
  8. superscripts like in m2
  9. subscripts like in CO2
  10. Add a chapter, using one "!" for the 1. order header, "!!" for 2nd order heading, "!!! for 3rd order heading"
  11. center a paragraph (instead of flush left)
  12. indent the first line
  13. indent the second line
  14. numbered list
  15. unsorted bullets
  16. spell check
  17. mathematical expressions, using LaTeX type of formatting, and finally
  18. convert Copy&Paste from Excel to a Wiki table

It is enough if you understand how to create a link to a page. We use Groups (like Unik, Communications, Main) and Pages (like HomePage, WP1, WhateverName) to create a page. Thus, if you want to go to the page UNIK4700 under Courses you would write in your text [[Courses/UNIK4700]] . If the page does not exist, the Wiki will ask you to create it.

That's it, give it a try, WikiPlayGround?action=edit

Markups

This page provides a more complete list of some of the markup sequences available in PmWiki. Note that it's easy to create and edit pages without using any of the markups below, but if you ever need them, they're here.

To experiment with the rules, please try editing the Main/WikiSandbox.
Table: || border=1 width=350 bgcolor=#bbbbbb align=center
(:markup:) (:markupend:) for coded text
Attach:MyPhoto.jpg"UniK.no" for attach of pictures
[[#anchor]] and [[Pagename#anchor link text]]


Paragraphs

  • Do not indent paragraphs
  • Words wrap and fill as needed
  • Use blank lines as separators
  • Lines indented with one or more spaces (or tabs) are monospace font.
  • Use \ (single backslash) at the end of a line to join the next line to the current one.
  • Use \\ (two backslashes) at the end of a line to force a line break, but keep the current environment (e.g. stay inside the current list item).
  • Use \\\ (three backslashes) to force a line break and skip a line, keeping the current environment. (Every additional backslash skips another line)

Indented Paragraphs (Quotes)

Arrows (->) at the beginning of a paragraph can be used to produce an indented paragraph. More hyphens at the beginning (--->) produce larger indents.

->Four score and seven years ago our fathers placed upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers placed upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Inverted Arrows (-<)at the beginning of a paragraph can be used to produce a paragraph with a hanging indent. Adding hyphens at the beginning (---<) causes all the text indent.

-<Four score and seven years ago our fathers placed upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers placed upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Bulleted Lists

Bullet lists are made by placing asterisks at the left margin. More asterisks increases the level of bullet:

* First-level list item
** Second-level list item
** Another second-level item
* A first-level item
  • First-level list item
    • Second-level list item
    • Another second-level item
  • A first-level item

Horizontal Line

Four or more dashes (----) at the beginning of a line produce a horizontal line.


Emphasis

  • Use doubled single-quotes (''), i.e., two apostrophes, for emphasis (usually italics)
  • Use tripled single-quotes ('''), i.e. three apostrophes, for strong emphasis (usually bold)
  • Use five single-quotes ('''''), or triples within doubles (five apostrophes), for some other kind of emphasis (usually bold italics)
  • Use doubled at-signs (@@) for monospace text
  • Use [+...+] for larger text and [-...-] for smaller text
  • Emphasis can be used multiple times within a line, but cannot span across markup line boundaries (i.e., you can't put a paragraph break in the middle of bold text).

Others styling

  • '+big+', '-small-', '^super^', '_sub_', {+ins+}, {-del-}.
    big , small , super , sub , ins , del
  • `WikiWord WikiWord neutralisation

See also WikiStyles for advanced text formatting options.


References

  • Use words and phrases in double brackets (e.g., [[text formatting rules]]) to create links to other pages on this wiki.
  • Capitalized words joined together (e.g., WikiWords?) can also be used to make references to other pages without needing the double-brackets.
  • Precede URLs with "http:", "ftp:", "gopher:", "mailto:", or "news:" to create links automatically, as in http://www.pmichaud.com/toast.
  • URLs ending with .gif, .jpg, or .png are displayed as images in the page
  • Links with arbitrary text can be created as either [[target | text]] or [[text -> target]]. Text can be an image URL, in which case the image becomes the link to the remote url or WikiWord.
  • Anchor targets within pages (#-links) can be created using [[#target]].

Headings

Headings are made by placing a exclamation mark (!) at the left margin. More exclamation marks increases the level of heading. For example,

! Level 1 Heading
!! Level 2 Heading
!!! Level 3 Heading
!!!! Level 4 Heading

Level 1 Heading

Level 2 Heading

Level 3 Heading

Level 4 Heading


Escape sequence

Anything placed between [= and =] is not interpreted by PmWiki/PmWiki. This makes it possible to easily do WikiWords that are not links and turn off other special formatting interpretation. The [= and =] can span multiple input lines, allowing effects to be applied to multiple input lines. For example, space[= at the beginning of a line will cause the text up to the next =] to be monospace and uninterpreted by PmWiki/PmWiki (useful for program listings).


Numbered Lists

Numbered lists are made by placing number-signs (#) at the left margin.

# Prepare the experiment
## Unwrap the pop-tart
## Insert the pop-tart into the toaster
# Begin cooking the pop tart
# Stand back
  1. Prepare the experiment
    1. Unwrap the pop-tart
    2. Insert the pop-tart into the toaster
  2. Begin cooking the pop tart
  3. Stand back

Definition Lists

Definition lists are made by placing colons at the left margin:

:term:definition of term
::second-level item: definition of 2nd-level item
term
definition of term
second-level item
definition of 2nd-level item

Tables

Table are defined by enclosing cells with '||'. A cell with leading and trailing spaces is centered; a cell with leading spaces is right-aligned; all other cells are left-aligned. An empty cell will cause the previous cell to span multiple columns. (There is currently no mechanism for spanning multiple rows.) A line beginning with '||' specifies the table attributes for subsequent tables. An '!' as the first character in a cell provides emphasis that can be used to provide headings. This is interesting stuff.


||border=1 width=50%
||!Table||!Heading||!Example||
||!Left   || Center || Right||
||A       ||!   B   ||     C||
||        || single ||      ||
||        || multi span   ||||
