The page will present the basic editing commands for entering content into the wiki. For more detailed documentation, please visit http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Editing

Headings

Headings are handled using equals signs. Headings are accomplished like so:

  • =Top Heading=
  • ==Sub Heading==
  • ===Sub Sub Heading===

Using these commands also creates a table of contents for the page, that will be shown at the top of the page, or whereever you enter the __TOC__ keyword.

Links

Links can only be inserted using the wiki code. There are different types of links: internal and external. Internal links refer to other parts of the wiki (pages, images, files, etc.) and external links refer to links to pages elsewhere on the web.

Here are some examples:

  • Internal
    • To another page : [[Page Name]]
    • Using different text : [[Page Name|Page Description]]
    • To images, etc. : [[media:filename.end|Description]]
  • External

When creating links, make the page name a short but descriptive word or phrase. This makes it easier to search for and find pages that already exist. Also, do not use concatenated words. For example, use "Linear Amplifier Circuit" instead of "LinAmpCircuit" Make use of the Page Description option to give a longer description.
