Wiki syntax

Headers

To add a header type the text of the header and then place some equal signs (=) around the text depending on what level header you want.

Header level 2 ==Header level 2==
Header level 3 ===Header level 3===
Header level 4 ====Header level 4====

Etc.

Links

To link to another page just surround the text that you want to use as the link with two square brackets ([[TEXT]]). This will then link to the page that is the same text as the text between the brackets.


To link to a page which is different to the text to be shown use as follows:

to link to the Cross-River Tram Depot page but just displaying the text 'click here' enter the following text: [[Cross-River Tram Depot|click here]].


To link to an external page use just one set of square brackets. eg. [1] ([http://www.peckhamvision.org]). To display different text to the address of the external site leave a space after the address and enter the text to be shown: Peckham Vision ([http://www.peckhamvision.org/ Peckham Vision]).

Images

To add an image add [[Image:IMAGENAME]] where you want it to be.

Templates

In some cases some templates exist which are better then using other images inputs. Use two curly brackets around the name of the template to use it. Use the Template:Download template for download links and the Template:PicBox for images - see the template pages for usage.

Text formatting

  • To make text bold surround it with three apostrophes . Eg Bold = '''Bold'''
  • To make text italicised surround it with two apostrophes . Eg. Italics = ''Italics''


To create a list put each item on a new row starting with a star (*). Eg:

  • List item 1
  • List item 2
  • List item 3
*List item 1
*List item 2
*List item 3

To create a list subitem just add two stars or three, or four etc. Eg.

  • List item 1
    • Sublist item 1
    • Sublisht item 2
  • List item 2
*List item 1
**Sublist item 1
**Sublisht item 2
*List item 2


To create a numbered list use hashes (#) instead of starts (*). Eg.

  1. List item 1
  2. List item 2
  3. List item 3
#List item 1
#List item 2
#List item 3
