  • You can edit the content using the wiki syntax. Normal caracters like * ' " =, that have special functions depending sometimes on their position. For example the syntax ''italic'' will return italic.
  • Mediawiki skips the new blank lines. If you want to start a new paragraph, you only have to drop a new blank line between the two sections of your text. You are also free to use HTML tags like <br>.
  • Some compatible HTML tags with MediaWiki: <code>, <div>, <span> and <font>.

Creating a new page

I've created the [[social computing]] page
  • It's a link that points to another wiki page
  • If the link is displayed in red, the page doesn't exist yet. If you click on the link, you can start inserting the content, save it, and then the page will be created.
  • To create a new page simply create a new link, e.g. from your home page. Alternatively search for a page using the menu on top right. If the page doesn't exist, you can create it by clicking on the red link.

changing the title of the link
I've created the <nowiki>[[Help:Contents|daily page]] tomorrow
</nowiki>
  • The wiki will display the title of the link, in other words all that is placed after a pipe (|)

I've created the daily page tomorrow

external links

The best way to make it is to add a title to the link

[http://www.nupedia.com Nupedia]
  • The [ ] defines an external link
  • No pipe symbol is needed, only a space between the url and the title.
