+
==Spaces, New Lines, Paragraphs, And More==
+
You might have already noticed that single spaces between lines do not create spaces in the text. For example:
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
Typing
+
like
+
this
+
would come out
+
like this:
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
Typing
+
like
+
this
+
would come out
+
like this:
+
 
+
A blank space between the two lines, on the other hand, creates a new paragraph. For example:
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
This would look like one paragraph.
+
 
+
This would look like another.
+
 
+
This would be the third.
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
This would look like one paragraph.
+
 
+
This would look like another.
+
 
+
This would be the third.
+
 
+
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.)
+
 
+
Just do this:
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
Text Line 1<br>
+
Text Line 2<br>
+
 
+
Paragraph 2 Line 1
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
Text Line 1<br>
+
Text Line 2<br>
+
 
+
Paragraph 2 Line 1
+
 
+
'''Remember:''' For the sake of clarity, it is best to place a line break, but not necessary.
+
 
+
==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?''
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
HTML encoding also works. For <b>Bold</b> and <i>Italics</i> you would use the following:
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
<b>Bold</b> and <i>Italics</i>
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
==Lists==
+
*Creating a bulleted list is simple.
+
**Creating Sub-Bullets is just as easy.
+
***And so on and so on and so on.
+
*Going back is easy too.
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
*Creating a bulleted list is simple.
+
**Creating Sub-Bullets is just as easy.
+
***And so on and so on and so on.
+
*Going back is easy too.
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
#Numbered Lists are almost the same
+
##So are sub numbers
+
###sub sub numbers
+
#and going back is also just as easy.
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
#Numbered Lists are almost the same
+
##So are sub numbers
+
###sub sub numbers
+
#and going back is also just as easy.
+
</nowiki></pre>
+
 
+
*Mixing lists are possible too.
+
*#Such as this one
+
*#*You can also<br>have new lines<br>inside lists.
+
 
+
<pre><nowiki>
+
*Mixing lists are possible too.
+
*#Such as this one
+
*#*You can also<br>have new lines<br>inside lists.
+
</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.
