Sample Page for Text_Wiki Default Markup


General Notes

The markup described on this page is for the default Text_Wiki rules; it is a combination of the WikkTikkiTavi and coWiki markup styles.

All text is entered as plain text, and will be converted to HTML entities as necessary. This means that <, >, &, and so on are converted for you (except in special situations where the characters are Wiki markup; Text_Wiki is generally smart enough to know when to convert and when not to).

Just hit "return" twice to make a paragraph break. If you want to keep the same logical line but have to split it across two physical lines (such as when your editor only shows a certain number of characters per line), end the line with a backslash \ and hit return once. This will cause the two lines to be joined on display, and the backslash will not show. (If you end a line with a backslash and a tab or space, it will not be joined with the next line, and the backslash will be printed.)


Inline Formatting

//emphasis text// emphasis text
**strong text** strong text
//**emphasis and strong**// emphasis and strong
{{teletype text}} teletype text
@@--- delete text +++ insert text @@ delete text insert text
@@--- delete only @@ delete only
@@+++ insert only @@ insert only
##red|red text## red text
##FFFF00|yellow text## yellow text

Literal Text

If you don't want Text_Wiki to parse some text, enclose it in two backticks (not single-quotes).


This //text// gets **parsed**.

``This //text// does not get **parsed**.``

This text gets parsed.

This //text// does not get **parsed**.


Headings

You can make various levels of heading by putting equals-signs before and after the text (all on its own line):


+++  Level 3 Heading

++++ Level 4 Heading

+++++  Level 5 Heading

++++++ Level 6 Heading

Level 3 Heading

Level 4 Heading

Level 5 Heading
Level 6 Heading

Table of Contents

To create a list of every heading, with a link to that heading, put a table of contents tag on its own line.

[[toc]]


Horizontal Rules

Use four dashes (----) to create a horizontal rule.


Lists

Bullet Lists

You can create bullet lists by starting a paragraph with one or more asterisks.

* Bullet one
 * Sub-bullet

  • Bullet one
    • Sub-bullet

Numbered Lists

Similarly, you can create numbered lists by starting a paragraph with one or more hashes.

# Numero uno
# Number two
 # Sub-item

  1. Numero uno
  2. Number two
    1. Sub-item

Mixing Bullet and Number List Items

You can mix and match bullet and number lists:

# Number one
 * Bullet
 * Bullet
# Number two
 * Bullet
 * Bullet
  * Sub-bullet
   # Sub-sub-number
   # Sub-sub-number
# Number three
 * Bullet
 * Bullet

  1. Number one
    • Bullet
    • Bullet
  2. Number two
    • Bullet
    • Bullet
      • Sub-bullet
        1. Sub-sub-number
        2. Sub-sub-number
  3. Number three
    • Bullet
    • Bullet

Definition Lists

You can create a definition (description) list with the following syntax:

: Item 1 : Something
: Item 2 : Something else

Item 1
Something
Item 2
Something else

Block Quotes

You can mark a blockquote by starting a line with one or more '>' characters, followed by a space and the text to be quoted.

This is normal text here.

> Indent me! The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. \ 
Now this the time for all good men to come to the aid of \ 
their country. Notice how we can continue the block-quote \ 
in the same "paragraph" by using a backslash at the end of \ 
the line.
>
> Another block, leading to...
>> Second level of indenting.  This second is indented even \ 
more than the previous one.

Back to normal text.

This is normal text here.

Indent me! The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Now this the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. Notice how we can continue the block-quote in the same "paragraph" by using a backslash at the end of the line.
>
Another block, leading to...
Second level of indenting. This second is indented even more than the previous one.

Back to normal text.

Line breaks

You can insert a linebreak in Lists and Blocks
using the underscore _ character as last character of the line.

* List Entry No. 1 _
here is the first entry of my list
 * List Entry No. 1.1 _
and this is the sub entry also indented correctly.
* List Entry No. 2 _
and this is the second entry also indented.

  • List Entry No. 1
    here is the first entry of my list
    • List Entry No. 1.1
      and this is the sub entry also indented correctly.
  • List Entry No. 2
    and this is the second entry also indented.

Links and Images

Wiki Links

SmashWordsTogether to create a page link.

You can force a WikiPage name not to be clickable by putting an exclamation mark in front of it.

WikiPage !WikiPage

WikiPage WikiPage

You can create a "described" or "labeled" link to a wiki page by putting the page name in brackets, followed by some text.

[WikiPage Descriptive text for the link.]

Descriptive text for the link.

Note: existing wiki pages must be in the wikilink pages configuration, and the wikilink view_url configuration value must be set for the linking to work.

Interwiki Links

Interwiki links are links to pages on other Wiki sites. Type the SiteName:PageName like this:

Note: the interwiki site must be in the interwiki sites configuration array.

URLs

Create a remote link simply by typing its URL: http://ciaweb.net.

If you like, enclose it in brackets to create a numbered reference and avoid cluttering the page; [http://ciaweb.net/free/] becomes 1.

Or you can have a described-reference instead of a numbered reference:

[http://pear.php.net PEAR]

PEAR

On-Page Links

Create and anchor on the page by [[# anchorName nice anchor text]] nice anchor text and refer to it by #anchorName #anchorName, or [#anchorName use normal link renaming] [#anchorName use normal link renaming].

Images

You can put a picture in a page with [[image foo.jpg]]. You can use any file type, but most browsers only support GIF, JPEG, and PNG formats. The filename can either be a relative reference (in which case the wiki looks for a file attached to the current page), an absolute reference which begins with a slash (in which case the wiki uses it to retrieve a file relative to the web server's root), or a full, external URL.

Additonal attributes, such as "alt" can follow the image filename or URL like so: [[image foo.jpg alt="A Foo JPEG"]]. "link" is a special attribute which makes the image a link to the specified URL.


Code Blocks

Create code blocks by using <code>...</code> tags (each on its own line).

This is an example code block!

To create PHP blocks that get automatically colorized when you use PHP tags, simply surround the code with <code type="php">...</code> tags (the tags themselves should each be on their own lines, and no need for the <?php ... ?> tags).

 <code type="php">
 // Set up the wiki options
 $options = array();
 $options['view_url'] = "index.php?page=";

 // load the text for the requested page
 $text = implode('', file($page . '.wiki.txt'));

 // create a Wiki objext with the loaded options
 $wiki = new Text_Wiki($options);

 // transform the wiki text.
 echo $wiki->transform($text);
 </code>

// Set up the wiki options
$options = array();
$options['view_url'] = "index.php?page=";

// load the text for the requested page
$text = implode('', file($page . '.wiki.txt'));

// create a Wiki objext with the loaded options
$wiki = new Text_Wiki($options);

// transform the wiki text.
echo $wiki->transform($text);

There is also a GeSHi parser for different programming languages present:

<geshi type="C">// Nicht ANSI-C90 konformes Beispiel
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
   printf("Hello world!");
   return 0;  
}
</geshi>

Creates the following output:
<geshi type="C">// Nicht ANSI-C90 konformes Beispiel
#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{ printf("Hello world!");
return 0;
}

</geshi>

The GeSHi plugin knows many types. For the complete language list go to http://qbnz.com/highlighter/


Tables

You can create tables using pairs of vertical bars:

||~ Heading one ||~ Heading two ||
|| cell one || cell two ||
|||| big ol' line ||
|| cell four || cell five ||
|| cell six || here's a very long cell ||

Heading one Heading two
cell one cell two
big ol' line
cell four cell five
cell six here's a very long cell

|| lines must start and end || with double vertical bars || nothing ||
|| cells are separated by || double vertical bars || nothing ||
|||| you can span multiple columns by || starting each cell ||
|| with extra cell |||| separators ||
|||||| but perhaps an example is the easiest way to see ||
