Editing a pageEdit

Editing a page is simple! All it takes is to click the "edit" button up in the corner. However, instead of HTML, you use Wikicode, which is a set of markup which will be explained below.

Bold textEdit

To produce bold text, sorround the text you wish to make bold with three apostrophes (which is a '). For example,

'''Wikis are awesome!'''

produces: Wikis are awesome!.

Italic textEdit

To produce italic text, sorround the text you wish to make italic with two apostrophes (which is a '). For example,

''Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis''

produces: Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.

Internal linksEdit

To make internal links, that is, links that go to other pages within TechCompare, simply sorround the page title of the page you'd like to link to with [[ and ]]. For example,

[[TechCompare:About]]

produces: TechCompare:About.

However, if you'd like to link to read one thing, but go to another, you could do:

  • Place [[
  • Write the title of the article you wish to link to
  • A vertical bar (which is a |)
  • The text which you'd like to have appear as the link.
  • Place ]]

For example,

[[TechCompare:About|the About page]]

produces: the About page.

External linksEdit

To make external links, that is, links that go to pages outside of TechCompare, place a [, followed by the URL, and some text to go along with it describing the link. For example,

[http://www.wikicities.com Wikia]

produces: Wikia.

HeadersEdit
