Wiki Syntax And Editor Shortcuts

You may choose a quick help guide from the menu at the top of the page for a short rundown of the more commonly used syntax markers, but what follows is a more in depth description with some examples that will also cover a few that the help page is missing.

First we'll cover basic text styles such as bold, italics, underlining, etc. Many of these options are easily accessible from the editor toolbar. You simply highlight the text you want to apply the style to and click the button you want. This works fine for most text editing, but some things like the heading level and text size can be a bit finicky and are easier to do by hand.

Here are your basics:

**This text is bold.** This text is bold.
//This text is italicized.// This text is italicized.
__This is underlined.__ This is underlined.
--This demonstrates strike through.-- This demonstrates strike through.

To justify a line use the following commands. Please note, the justification commands must be put on their own lines before and after the text. For example, to center a line it should look like this:

This text is centered.

The codes are:

Align Center [[=] … [[/=]]
Align Left [[<]] … [[/<]]
Align Right [[>]] … [[/>]]
Align Justified [[==]] … [[/==]]]

You can also change the Header or Text Size by using the + sign as follows…

+ Heading Level 1 (Note, this includes a page break line.)

++ Heading Level 2 (We tend to use this as our largest text.)

+++ Heading Level 3

++++ Heading Level 4

+++++ Heading Level 5
++++++ Heading Level 6

Be sure to put a space between your + sign and the text you wish to change the size of.
