HelpOnBasicFormatting

This page contains basic information about MoinMin's formatting capabilities. It covers only a small amount of the formatting features but these are possibly covering about 99% of every-day problems. If you need more detailed information start with HelpOnEditing or HelpOnMoinWikiSyntax.

Basics

White space

Show the details

Note that white space most of the time is ignored. This:

The   only       exception is white space at the beginning of a line.
This is not another line.

leads to this:

The only exception is white space at the beginning of a line. This is not another line.

For details how white space at the beginning of a line is processed see Indentation

Line breaks

Show the details

Insert a line break with the <<BR>>. This:

This goes onto the first line<<BR>>This goes onto the second line.

leads to this:

This goes onto the first line
This goes onto the second line

Indentation

Show the details

This:

no space
 Line 1
 Line 2
   Line 3
 Line 4

leads to this:

no space

  • Line 1 Line 2
    • Line 3
    Line 4

Titles

Show the details

The different levels depend on the number of "=" signs:

= level 1 =
== level 2 ==
=== level 3 ===
==== level 4 ====

Notes:

  • The first "=" char must be the first character on a line.
  • To the right of the very last "=" char their must not be any white space.

A word of advice: try to avoid using level 4 headers, and never use headers of level 5 and 6!

Numbered Lists

Show the details

 1. level1-1
 1. level1-2
   1. level2-1
   1. level2-2

  Normally this interrupts and therefore restart the numbering 

 1.#3 level1-3

leads to this:

  1. level1-1
  2. level1-2
    1. level2-1
    2. level2-1
    • Normally this interrupts and therefore restart the numbering
  3. level1-3

Bulleted Lists

Show the details

 * level1-1
 * level1-2
   * level2-1
   * level2-2
 * level1-3

leads to this:

  • level1-1
  • level1-2
    • level2-1
    • level2-2
  • level1-3

Tables

Show the details

This:

|| '''col1''' || '''col2''' || '''col3''' ||
|| cell A1 || cell B1 || cell C1 ||
|| cell A2 || cell B2 || cell C2 ||
|| cell A2 || cell B2 || cell C2 ||

leads to this:

col1

col2

col3

cell A1

cell B1

cell C1

cell A2

cell B2

cell C2

cell A2

cell B2

cell C2

Notes:

  • The first "|" char must be the first character on a line.
  • To the right of the very last "|" char their must not be any white space.

APL Code

Show the details

This:

    {⍵/⍳⍴,⍵}
    {{⍵/⍨2=+⌿0=⍵∘.|⍵}⍳⍵}

leads to what you are looking at!

Show the details

Names of pages in a wiki more often than not use CamelCasing as in the name of this page: HelpOnBasicFormatting. CamelCase names are automatically converted into links within the realm of the current wiki.

If a page name contains blanks surround them with [[ and ]]. Therefore this:

[[Page name]]

leads to this: Page name

Alternatively with an optional link text:

[[Page name | link to some page]]

leads to this: link to some page

For how to display an image within a page (rather than linking to it) see Images.

Images

Show the details

First upload the image(s) as an attachment; click the "Attachments" button and act accordingly.

Once the image is uploaded and attached to a page it can be used, either in order to display it within the page or for download (= linking, see there). Since it is always associated with a certain page you can refer to it by its simple filename. Since linking to an image is discussed in the #Links to images chapter here we attempt to actually display the image.

  {{attachment:APL-Logo.png || height=40,width=40}}

TRASH.BMP

which leads to APL-Logo.png

Tables are sometimes useful to arrange images. This:

|| {{attachment:trash.bmp || {{attachment:trash.bmp || {{attachment:trash.bmp ||
|| {{attachment:trash.bmp || {{attachment:trash.bmp || {{attachment:trash.bmp ||

leads to this: TRASH.BMP sample.ico

TRASH.BMP

trash.bmp

trash.bmp

trash.bmp

trash.bmp

trash.bmp

trash.bmp

Attachments

Show the details

Before you start linking to an attachment (for download purposes, for example) first upload the attachment; click the "Attachments" button and act accordingly.

Once the attachment is uploaded it is available for link purposes. Since it is always associated with a certain page you can refer to it by its simple filename. For example, a link to the file "sample.txt" which is attached to this page can be created with:

  [[attachment:sample.txt]]

which leads to sample.txt.

Alternatively with an optional link text as in:

  [[attachment:sample.txt | link to the attachment]]

which leads to link to the attachment

Table of contents

Show the details

Insert this right after the = title = part of your page:

    <<TableOfContents>>
