Help/Help on Headlines

Section Headings

You can create headings by equal signs. The wiki supports up to five heading levels. In HTML, this is <h1> through <h5>. The heading text is between those markers, separated by a single space.

Headings are useful because they help divide a page's content. Headings also show up in the [[TableOfContents]] macro. When headings are used next to a thumbnail images, "clear" the text and create a functional break in the text flow.

For more information on the possible markup, see Help on Editing.


 = Heading Level 1 =
 == Heading Level 2 ==
 === Heading Level  3 ===
 ==== Heading Level  4 ====
 ===== Heading Level  5 =====

Example Output

Use the biggest header, = Heading Level 1 =, for creating your initial sections then smaller headers for sub-sections.

To indent a headline just but a space (or multiple spaces) in front of it:

== Not indented ==

  == indented ==

Displays as:

Not indented

This is useful for organizing headers. The more spaces put in front of a headline the more it is indented.

Horizontal Rules

You can insert a horizontal rule by placing a series of dashes into the page:


displays as:

Four of more dashes can be used.
