Using wiki codes

Wikis feature their own "syntax" or codes. For example, to make a numbered list, you put each item on a separate line and start the line with a pound symbol:

This wiki code Results in this display on the page

# One
# Two
## Two point one
# Three

  1. One
  2. Two
    1. Two point one
  3. Three

The good news is that there are not very many wiki codes, and many of them (for example, bold, italics, hyperlink) also have buttons in the edit toolbar that you can use that will automatically insert the codes.

The Clicklaw Wikibooks Cheatsheet features the key wiki codes. Also available is a Clicklaw Wikibooks Style Guide that highlights key style and word usage for Clicklaw Wikibooks.
