Wiki help

Hey folks!

A new COTS games in education wiki is coming soon.  I’m just putting this up to create a page where I’ll add wiki help files.  If you are very curious to see what an empty wiki looks like, go ahead and take a peek.

I’m using textile formatting for the wiki.  Basically, instead of using HTML (which isn’t very friendly), we are using a way of formatting text.

The best way to learn how to wiki, is to simply register, and then edit a page. You can see the editing I’ve used to make the wiki. Very straight-forward stuff. If you have many more questions, please let me know.

Here’s a list, taken from textile’s site:


Quick block modifiers:
Header: hn.
Blockquote: bq.
Footnote: fnn.
Numeric list: #
Bulleted list: *

Quick phrase modifiers:
_emphasis_
*strong*
??citation??
-deleted text-
+inserted text+
^superscript^
~subscript~
%span%

To apply attributes:
(class)
(#id)
{style}
[language]

To align blocks:

< right
>

left
= center
<> justify

To insert a table:
|a|table|row|
|a|table|row|

To insert a link:
"linktext":url

To insert an image:
!imageurl!

To define an acronym:
ABC(Always Be Closing)

To reference a footnote:
[n]

So, if you wanted something to be strong, you would type it like this:  *I want this to be strong*

Pretty easy, huh?
