Help:Basic wiki editing guide

Jump to: navigation, search

Creating and editing pages on the wiki is easy, First create a wiki account this is linked to alter aeon and requires the name of a registered character and email address. Once verified click the edit tab on an existing page or create tab on a new page. Type any text and markup into the edit box and hit submit.

To create a new page

There are three ways to start a new page either search for the page or create a link on an existing page and click it or open the page in the browser by typing it into the address bar http://wiki.alteraeon.com/index.php/<new page title>. Warning the page title is case sensitive so Town of Vermarken is not the same as town of vermarken. Only the first letter of the title is automatically capitalized.

Basic wiki syntax

Wiki markup can be used in the text to format how the page is displayed.

Headings

To add a heading surround the text with equal signs, ensure the same number on each side. The number of signs indicate the level of the heading, level one is the page title, so always start with two equal signs and add additional signs for sub headings. example ==heading 1==

Wiki links

To create a link to another page on the wiki enclose the text with two square brackets. If the text and the link differ, first add the link name followed by a pipe and then the text to display example [[The City of Gad's Landing|Gad's]]. Remember pages are case sensitive and only the first letter is automatically capitalized.

External links

To setup an external hyperlink surround the link with single square brackets, adding any display text to the end seperated by a space. example [http://www.alteraeon.com main alteraeon website]

Bullets and numbered lists

Bullets and numbered list can be created by prefixing the line with an asterisk and hash respectively. Each can have sub levels by adding additional symbols. example * bullet 1 ** bullet 1.1. #number 1 ## number 1.1

Categorizing a page

Pages can be put into one or more categories. It usually a good idea to add a least one category at the bottom of each page to help people find it. Type [[category:<category name>]] to add a category to the page. If you wish to setup a hyperlink to a category without categorizing the page use a colon before link example [[:category:<category name>]].
