Editing Tips
Before editing any of the pages here, please review the EtreeWikiGoals.

Edit the SandBox page to see how it's done. Practice these rules in the SandBox. If you have editing questions not covered below (check first), try WikiQuestions.

Also, refer to the official list of Tavi:FormalFormattingRules? to see all the possibilities and their combinations.


SmashWordsTogether LikeThis to create a page link. Click on the ? to edit the new page.

You can also create (free links)? that aren't WordsSmashedTogether?. Type them like this: ((free links)). (This is an option that is turned on in this wiki. WikkiTikkiTavi? allows you to turn (free links)? off if you want only the classic Wiki link style.)

You may also create links with spaces in them, find out more over at Tavi:SplitWikiNames? (eg; (Split Wiki Names)?)

To avoid making a potential page link on a word with internal capitals, surround the word with 3 backticks.
 :I don't want to link to ```WikiWord```.
Example: ShnAmp vs. ShnAmp (second version is within backticks). Backticks will take off any other Wiki markup effects as well.

''italic text'' becomes italic text


'''bold text''' becomes bold text


{{monospace text}} becomes monospace text


---- becomes a horizontal rule:


Create a remote link simply by typing its URL: http://andstuff.org.

If you like, enclose it in brackets to create a numbered reference and avoid cluttering the page; [http://andstuff.org] becomes [1].

Or you can have a description instead of a numbered reference; [http://nytimes.com NY Times] becomes [NY Times].


You can put a picture in a page by typing the URL to the picture (it must end in gif, jpg, or png). For example, http://c2.com/sig/wiki.gif becomes
wiki.gif.


You can link to some other sites by typing shortcuts. See InterWiki for more details. For example,

MeatBall?:RecentChanges
Advogato:proj/WikkiTikkiTavi?
Wiki:WorseIsBetter?
