==Spaces, New Lines, Paragraphs, And More==
+
== Late night arrivals: ==
You might have already noticed that single spaces between lines do not create spaces in the text. For example:
+
  
<pre><nowiki>
+
If you are arriving at your accommodation outside of their regular reception hours, please leave your details here so we can organise out-of-hours reception.
Typing
+
like
+

+
would come out  
+
like this:
+

+
  
Typing
+
=== Uni Halls ===
like
+
'''Reception hours: 8am - 8pm. '''
this
+
would come out
+
like this:
+
  
A blank space between the two lines, on the other hand, creates a new paragraph. For example:
+
'''After hours phone: 027 676 4862'''
  
<pre><nowiki>
+
(your name, date & time of arrival)
This would look like one paragraph.
+
  
This would look like another.

For a new line, you must use the line break (br) command after the line. (Single Spaces are not necessary, but are used for clarity.)

== Clothes Washing ==
  
'''Remember:''' For the sake of clarity, it is best to place a line break, but not necessary.

University Hall: Yes
  
==Emphasis==
+
"A large coin operated laundry is located on the basement level, equipped with plenty of washers and dryers. (Washing powder is not supplied, but can be purchased via the laundry vending machine or at nearby convenience stores).
'''Hello!'''

University Hall Apartments also have laundry and lounge facilities."

''How Are You?''
 
  
This is basic, but important. Use three apostrophes for bold text and two for italics. The above section was made like this:
+
Carlaw Park: Communal coin operated laundries are available in room 833.
  
<pre><nowiki>

+
137 Hobson Street
</nowiki></pre>
+
Auckland Central
 
+
Open 6am to Midnight.
HTML encoding also works. For <b>Bold</b> and <i>Italics</i> you would use the following:
+
Self-service laundromat.
 
+
Large washing machine load - $6
<pre><nowiki>
+
Commercial extra large washing machine load - $10
<b>Bold</b> and <i>Italics</i>
+

</nowiki></pre>
+
Normal household load, Wash & Dry - $10 to $12 total.
 
+
Note changer onsite to change notes into $2 coins for use in all machines.
==Lists==
+
Soap powder dispenser available.
*Creating a bulleted list is simple.
+
Parking out front.  
**Creating Sub-Bullets is just as easy.
+
Open 6am to Midnight every day of the year!
***And so on and so on and so on.

</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
==Horizontal Rules==
+
Don't use these too often, as they break up the page. Instead, it is recommended you use section breaks (see below). If you really need them, however, this is the formatting:
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
----
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
==Indentation==
+
:A colon indents a line.
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
:A colon indents a line.
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
==Alignment==
+
A page is left-aligned by default.
+
<center> Center Text Like This </center>
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
<center> Center Text Like This </center>
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
==Section Breaks==
+
Many articles on the wiki use section headers and tables of contents, like the ones above. Two equal(=) signs makes a topic.
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
==This Is a Topic==
+
===This Is a Subtopic===
+
====This is a Sub Sub Topic====
+
===This is a subtopic of the first topic, but not the other sub topics===
+
==This is another topic==
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
To add a Table Of Contents, type:
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
__TOC__
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
If a Table of Contents is automatic for the article (true for certain namespaces and templates), you can use this formatting to remove one:
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
__NOTOC__
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
'''Note:''' Table of contents lists only list topics that appear after they are inserted.
