Edit Syntax

Additionally, you can type in functionality as below.

Wiki Basic Text Formatting

  • '''bold''' produces bold
  • ''italic'' produces italic
  • __underlined__ produces underlined
  • --striked-- produces striked
  • You can use any combination, for example --striked '' '''bold''' and italic''-- produces striked bold and italic
  • (((boxed))) produces a
    boxed text


You can create headings using a sequence of equal (=) signs:
  • ==Biggest Heading (H1)== [reserved for page titles]
  • ===Big Heading (H2)===
  • ====Small Heading (H3)====
  • =====Smallest Heading (H4)=====

The first 3 Headings work as separators, the latter is only a small heading (use it sparingly).
H1 is not recommended because it's used for the Page Title and therefore may cause confusion


A list is made by a sequence of lines starting with one or more asterisks (*) and/or diesis (#).
You can create nested list using more than one asterisk or diesis. Alist must finish with a {BR} or a blank line.
  1. # - Ordered list
    1. ## - Second level ordered list
      • ##* - Third level unordered item

  • * - Un-ordered list
    • ** - Second level un-ordered list

Line Breaks

Two line breaks are treated as they are. A single line break is ignored.
If you want to insert a single line break, you can use the standard HTML tag
or its WikiMarkup alias {BR}(case-insensitive). It's not recommended to abuse single line breaks because they tend to create confusion in the page.

Text Indentation

The text can be indented using one or more colons, at the beginning of a line.
: Single indentation
::Double indentation


Links are identified with [[ and ]].
  • To insert a link to an internal page just write [[PageName]], that produces PageName(if the linked Page doesn't exist, the link will have a different color)
  • You can add a title to the link: [[PageName|This is a Link]] produces This is a Link
  • Email links are detected automatically, for example [[mail@server.com]] produces
  • Obviously you can add a title: [[mail@server.com|Contact us]] becomes [[mail@server.com|Contact us]]
  • If you want to add a subject to your email, use [[mail@server.com?subject=Wiki Syntax Help|Contact us for wiki syntax help]] which becomes
  • External links are marked with a special icon: http://www.screwturn.eu
  • You can link to an internal file or subdirectory: [[blog/|Blog]] produces Blog and [[GPL.txt|GPL]] produces GPL
  • You can link to a Windows Share Drive: [[file://///server_name/shared_directory/shared_file.txt|This links to shared directory]] produces: This links to shared directory
  • If you add a ^ sign to the URL, the link will open in a new browser window, for example MyPage.
  • You can use Anchors in your page links: [[PageName#Anchor|This is a Link with an anchor]] produces This is a Link with an anchor
    Another example is PageEditing/1.2 - Links Page Editing/1.2 - Links.

You can upload files using the File Management interface.
