These are the basic editing tags, and you should know them if you want to be a good editor.
 Creating a new page
Not existing pages are indicated by red links. If you follow them, you'll automatically enter the editing page, from where you can create this article.
If you want to create a completely new page, edit the link inside your address bar accordingly (and replace spaces with underscores). You'll get to the page, click on the 'edit' link and you can start creating the page.
You can also edit existing pages using the 'edit' link described above.
 Creating titles
If you want to add a title inside your page, start a new line, type in the page title and enclose it in =s, i. e. ==Page Title== (more =s create smaller titles). You can also use this method to create subtitles.
Each title will also create an anchor, which can be linked to with the syntax [[Page name#titlename]] (case sensitive)
Note that if you have four titles or more in your page, a 'contents' box wil be displayed at the top of your page. You can also force the table of contents to appear by adding __TOC__ at the point where it should appear.
 Bold and italic text
To get italic text, enclose the text in two apostrophes.
To get bold text, enclose the text in three apostrophes.
To get both bold and italic text, enclose the text in five apostrophes.
- Unordered lists are made by adding a star (*) at the beginning of the lines.
- Numbered lists are made by adding a # at the beginning of the lines.
 Stop texts from getting parsed
You can stop certain texts from accidentally being parsed by enclosing the text inside <nowiki>(text goes here)</nowiki>. This will stop any MediaWiki and HTML code from getting parsed.
If you want to make a page redirect to another, add this at the beginning of the first line of the article:
(any other text after the redirect is ignored, categorization works as usual)
As of the new MediaWiki 1.9.2, you can also redirect to sections, just add the section to the link.
