Category Tips

To create a fresh "New" Category type it into the Browser Address bar.
Example: http://wiki.ledhed.net/index.php/Category:Animals
Where "Animals" is the name of the new Category.

If it is in fact a new category, "Edit" the category and add text and such to it.


  • Categories are not a Tree Hierarchy!
  • Only Categories can be Sub-Categories.


Categorize an Article

Place the following at the end of the article:

[[Category:NameOfCategory]]

where NameOfCategory is the name of the Category you want to associate the artical with.


Create a Sub-Category

Sub-Categories are just categories that are linked to other categories.

Just like in the example above, place the following at the end of the category page:

[[Category:NameOfParentCategory]]

where NameOfParentCategory is the name of the Parent Category where you want the Sub-Category to be a member of.

Create a hyperlink to a Category

[[:Category:Foo]]

will appear as Category:Foo

Notice the colon (:) before the word Category!!

or

[[:Category:Foo|Foo]]

will appear as Foo Notice the colon (:) before the word Category and the Pipe (|) between the 2 Foo's!!
The Foo after the Pipe is the Title (which can be anything you want not just the Category Title
Example: [[:Category:Foo|Anything You Want Here]] looks like Anything You Want Here but still links to the 'Foo' Category


Confused Yet?  :)


Links

Links are the power behind MediaWiki. They let you add links within articles that make cross referencing data much easier.

Link Article or Category

Create a link to a Category or Article:

[[NameOfCategoryOrArticle]]

Link Article Anchor

Create a link to an Article Anchor (TOC Entry)

[[Ingress Levels#Action Points|Action Points]]

Hyperlinks (External Links)

To create a link to an external website just type the URL:

http://wiki.ledhed.net

Looks like: http://wiki.ledhed.net

or mask it with a title

[http://wiki.ledhed.net|LedHed's Wiki]

Looks like: Wiki

Renaming

Use the Move tab to rename a Page or Category. Moving a page/category will cause the original to be redirected.

You may need to delete the original if the redirect is no longer needed.


Files / Media / Images

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Images

Images

To link to a previously uploaded image:

[[File:Wiki.png]]

or if you want a caption

[[File:Wiki.png|caption]]


Files / Media

If you want to link to a file (like a PDF or a MPG):

[[Media:My-Manifesto.pdf|Manifesto.pdf]]

NOTE: The caption isn't required but makes the link look better.

Editing Tips

  • <br> = Break or New Line
  • Use <nowiki></nowiki> tags to ignore wiki formatting

There is also an Icon for this at the top of the editor.

  • Use a * (Asterisk) at the beginning of a line to create a bullet
  • Force an indent with :
  • Double indent with :: and so on.

Creating Tables

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Tables

{| class="wikitable"
|-
!Header 1              !!Header 2             !!Header 3
|-
| something            || something else      || something else else
|-
|}

Looks like this:

Header_1 Header_2 Header_3
something something else something else else


Start/Open the Table

{| class="wikitable"

Create Headers

First Header:

!Header_1

NOTE: The single bang (!)


Subsequent Headers:

!!Header_2

NOTE: The double bang (!!)

Column Dividers

First Column Divider:

|

NOTE: The single pipe (|)


Subsequent Column Dividers:

||

NOTE: The double pipe (||)


Row Dividers

This will create a new Row divider (Top or Bottom):

|-


End/Close the Table

|}


Force a Table of Contents (TOC)

Add this anywhere you want the TOC to be displayed.

__TOC__


Adding Color

You can set text color by using:

 <span style="color:#009000"> TEXT </span>

You can set style="background:#000000" color or both style="color:#009000;background:#000000" Your text will look something like this:
TEXT or TEXT


Pre-Formatted Text

You can force pre-formatted text with the PRE tags.
