How to Wiki

By

November 26, 2008

This is a Wiki. If you have never used a wiki before - here is the standard syntax we are supporting:

Sections

Sections - meaning the ability to break your document into separate sections and also generate the table of contents of these sections

==Primary Section==
===Second Section===
====Third Section====
=====Fourth Section====

Table of Contents

To place the table of contents within your content, use the <toc/> tag (or <toc></toc>).

Code Blocks

To place a code block in your content, use the <code></code> tags.

Skipped Syntax (nowiki)

To block content from the wiki parsing (like this section), place your content within a nowiki tag like this:

<nowiki>...</nowiki>

Pull Out Quotes

There are times where you would like to place a pull out quote, specially formatted to appear within your wiki topic. To do this, use three double quotes on each side of your content like this:

"""This is a pop out quote! You can do this in your own topics and make your quotes look like you are incredible!"""

This is a pop out quote! You can do this in your own topics and make your quotes look like you are incredible!

Sidebars

Additionally, you may find the occasion where you want to put a list of resources on your topic, this is provided as a list of links and are supported by the sidebar syntax.
Starting with a syntax like this:

Resources

<sidebar>
    <layout>resources</layout>
    <headline>My List of Resources</headline>
    <item>url|link</item>
    <item>text url|link text </item>
    <item>url|link text</item>
</sidebar>

And yielding a result like this:

My List of Resources
  1. link
  2. link text
  3. link text

Blob.Right

Another format of the sidebar will float left or right using the layout "Blob.Left" or "Blob.Right" accordingly:

Open Web Studio
Take a quick look at the open web studio banner to get an initial idea of its stance within the market.

 

 

<sidebar>
    <layout>Blob.Right</layout>
    <headline>Open Web Studio</headline>
    <item><img src="http://beta.openwebstudio.com/portals/0/sm_mainpic.gif" border="0">|Take a quick look at the [[ows|open web studio]] banner to get an initial idea of its stance within the market.</item>
</sidebar>

 

 

Blob.Left

Open Web Studio
Take a quick look at the open web studio banner to get an initial idea of its stance within the market.

    <layout>Blob.Left</layout>
    <headline>Open Web Studio</headline>

</sidebar>

 

 

Links

Finally, and most important - Links!
[[Link To a Topic]] to link to the topic "Link To a Topic".
[[Link To a Topic|My Topic]] to link to the topic "Link To a Topic" while displaying the link text "My Topic".
[[Link To a Topic#Cool Section]] to link to the topic "Link To a Topic" and jump to the section "Cool Section".
[[#Cool Section]] to jump to the section "Cool Section" in the current topic.
[[normalred:Link To a Topic]] to link to the topic "Link To a Topic" and assign the anchor tag the "normalred" class. Thats about it.
