==Spaces, New Lines, Paragraphs, And More==

Given that the '''Stardome Planetarium Observatory''' is situated handily close to the University of Auckland venue for LCA2015, I thought we'd organise an Astronomy BoF again this year to complement the Astronomy Miniconf.
You might have already noticed that single spaces between lines do not create spaces in the text. For example:
+
  
<pre><nowiki>
+
Stardome has a [http://www.stardome.org.nz/whats-on/gallery-exhibits/ gallery/exhibits], and runs a [http://www.stardome.org.nz/events/the-summer-night-sky/ planetarium show on the summer night sky] at 8pm. After the planetarium show, there is [http://www.stardome.org.nz/whats-on/telescope-viewing/ telescope viewing available] which included amateur-grade telescopes in the courtyard, or the option of viewing through the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stardome_Observatory#Facilities Zeiss 0.5m telescope] for a small extra fee.

Add yourself here. If you have a vehicle and can take passengers, please indicate the number of passengers you can take with you.
  
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.)

+
 
+
==Emphasis==
+
'''Hello!'''
+
 
+
''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:
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
'''Hello!'''
+
 
+
''How Are You?''

HTML encoding also works. For <b>Bold</b> and <i>Italics</i> you would use the following:

+
 
+
==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.

< Main Page < Programme < BoF Sessions


Given that the Stardome Planetarium Observatory is situated handily close to the University of Auckland venue for LCA2015, I thought we'd organise an Astronomy BoF again this year to complement the Astronomy Miniconf.

Stardome has a gallery/exhibits, and runs a planetarium show on the summer night sky at 8pm. After the planetarium show, there is telescope viewing available which included amateur-grade telescopes in the courtyard, or the option of viewing through the Zeiss 0.5m telescope for a small extra fee.

Please feel free to update this page to include/suggest other options.


Cheers,

Jessica Smith (Astronomy Miniconf organiser)
