Legacy:Wiki Markup

From Unreal Wiki, The Unreal Engine Documentation Site
Jump to: navigation, search

To edit a wiki page, click on the "Edit text of this page" link at the bottom of the page. This will take you to a page with a text box: in this text box is the text of the wiki page. Press "Save" to store your changes in the wiki. The "preview" button will reload the form page, with the output beneath it.

Wiki markup is essentially plain text. You do NOT need to put in soft line breaks: text wraps in the browser's edit box! There are a few simple control characters that are listed below. You can test these in the Sandbox. Guidelines On Technical Names has conventions on page names and formatting. Legacy:Wiki Markup/Converting From HTML.

Like HTML, Wiki markup is supposed to be logical, not physical. Don't worry about spacing (for example, double-spacing a list). Because of differing style sets, what you see on your page may differ from what others see.

Sections, Paragraphs, Lists and Lines[edit]

Start your sections with header lines:

  • Lists are good:

You can use <uscript lines> to automatically add line numbers. Keep in mind that people might want to copy and paste your code from their web browser, and line numbers must be laboriously removed from the pasted text before it's in a usable form. If you feel it's absolutely necessary to include line numbers in your example, make a 2-column table with the line numbers in the left coulumn and the code in the right.

local int Countdown;
for (Countdown = 10; Countdown >= 0; Countdown–)
  Log(Countdown $ "...");

Links, URLs, Images[edit]

Link to the Project FAQ.

First letter of target is automatically capitalized. Spaces are converted into underscores. To create a new page: start with a link to it, then click on ?.

Check out the Guidelines On Page Creation, that's where naming conventions currently live.)

Same target, different name: answers.

Targets can only contain letters and spaces!

The weather in London is a page that doesn't exist yet.

You can start it by clicking on the question mark. After creating a page, search for its title and make sure that everyone correctly links to it.

Redirect one article title to another by putting text like this in its first line.

Good idea since it makes a printout more useful. Links to .zip files get a fancy box around them and are best used in a paragraph of their own. Links to image files display the images inline.

Use it at the end of a line to sign a comment like this:

Good point, well made. →Tarquin


~~~ Good point, well made.

To use sophisticated paragraph markup (like headings or lists) in a table cell, enclose it in ... . The amount of whitespace between table cells is irrelevant for the resulting formatting.
