Welcome to our wiki! Read the instructions and get going!

Wiki Markup

The BeWelcome wiki uses a syntax that resembles the synthax of MediaWiki (the software that is used for Wikipedia) a lot. It is not complete however, below you can see what works.

Simple textstyle in paragraphs

  • Italic text is included in two apostrophes like this

    ''Italic text''

  • Bold text is included in three apostrophes

    '''Bold text'''

Lists

Unordered list

  • list one
    subtext in the list
  • list two
    • sublist one
    • sublist two
  • list three

* list one
subtext in the list * list two ** sublist one ** sublist two * list three

Ordered list

  1. ordered one
  2. ordered two
    1. ordered sub one
    2. ordered sub two
      1. ordered subsub one
      2. ordered subsub two
    3. ordered sub three
    4. ordered sub four
  3. ordered three

Can be done like this

# ordered one # ordered two ## ordered sub one ## ordered sub two ### ordered subsub one ### ordered subsub two ## ordered sub three ## ordered sub four # ordered three

Definition lists

Subject 1
Definition 1
Definition 2
Subject 2

; Subject 1 : Definition 1 : Definition 2 ;Subject 2 : Definition 1 : Definition 2

Links

External

  • Http with Title (one word): BeWelcome

    [http://www.bewelcome.org BeWelcome]

  • Https with Title (one word) BeWelcome

    [https://www.bewelcome.org BeWelcome]

Internal

If the target page exist, the link color is blue, if not it's orange (just klick it to create the page!)

  • Userlinks like midsch

    [[User:midsch]]

  • Internal links (one word) without title Hamburg

    [[Hamburg]]

  • Internal links (several words) without title City of Hamburg

    [[City of Hamburg]]

  • Internal links (one word) with title(one word) Alemania

    [[Germany | Alemania]]

  • Internal links (one word) with title (several words) City of Hamburg

    [[Hamburg | City of Hamburg]]

  • Internal links (several words) with title(one word) Germany

    [[Land of Germans | Germany]]

  • Internal links (several words) with title (several words) Country full of Germans

    [[Land of Germans | Country full of Germans]]

Outdated CamelCase links

WORKING, BUT NOT RECOMMENDED:

  • Internal Camelcase link with title (reversed), one bracket: Help with markup here

    [WikiMarkup | Help with markup here]

  • Internal Camelcase link with title (reversed), two brackets: Help with markup here

    [[WikiMarkup | Help with markup here]]

NOT WORKING PROPERLY FOR TECHNICAL REASONS (title will end up as link, CamelCase part as title):

  • Internal Camelcase link with title, one bracket: WikiMarkup

    [Help with markup here | WikiMarkup]

  • Internal Camelcase link with title, two brackets: WikiMarkup

    [[Help with markup here | WikiMarkup]]

Images

We can use MediaWiki style image inclusion:

spread the word!

[[Image:http://www.bewelcome.org/downloads/door/fr/fr_door_blue.png|framed|spread the word!]]

Headlines

Headlines are made by text included in 2-5 times "=". Headlines of level 2 and 3 are automatically part of the Menu on the right side / at the top. Headline 1 is reserved for the Wiki.

== Headline 2 ==

=== Headline 3 ===

==== Headline 4 ====

===== Headline 5 =====

Other stuff

Table of Contents

[TOC]

At the begining of the page adds a table of content created from the headlines to a wiki page.

Horizontal line

----

Four dashes will make an horizontal line.

Nowiki-areas

<nowiki>

</nowiki>

Stops wiki synthax from working (works only for the complete line), i. e.:

This isn't end as a link: [[ThisIsALink|This is a link]]

Indent

: indent
:: more indented
::: much more indented

will appear as :

indent
more indented
much more indented

Add your signature

A signature is written by four times ~ and looks like: henri - Tue, 11 Aug 09 20:52:23 +0000

Code areas

<code>Writing Code</code>

will make an area like this:

Writing Code

HTML

<html></html>

enables html including div with css, i. e. bringing back the "Contact Method"-box at CS:

Contact Method

Typewriter font

Three leading spaces create a typewriter font
Typewriter Font

Not Working

Tables

cell 1 | cell 2 row 2 cell 1 | row 2 cell 2
