Creating and Linking Sections

You should use wiki sections to break your text in several small parts that can be edited faster.

Sections are created by creating their headers, as below:




Please do not use only one equals sign on a side (=text here=); this causes a title the size of the page name; which is taken care of automatically.

You can use section linking to link to a section within the same page using [[#section name|displayed text]].

How can I hide the table of contents?

Place the magic word __NOTOC__ into the page markup.

Creating Categories

  • Add a tag [[Category:<Category name>]] at the end of your page.

Example: [[Category:My References]]
