Curuxa Community Website is based on MediaWiki software.

Pages/articles are edited using the internal MediaWiki text editor, which includes a couple of buttons to simplify text formatting.

Many more combinations can be done using Wiki Syntax:

Basic Syntax

Description You type You get
character (inline) formatting – applies anywhere
Italic text ''italic'' italic
Bold text '''bold''' bold
Bold and italic '''''bold & italic''''' bold & italic
Escape wiki markup <nowiki>no ''markup''</nowiki> no ''markup''
section formatting – only at the beginning of the line
Headings of different levels
=level 1=
==level 2==
===level 3===
====level 4====
=====level 5=====
======level 6======

An article with 4 or more headings automatically creates a table of contents.

Level 1
Level 2
Level 3
Level 4
Level 5
Level 6
Bullet list
* one
* two
* three
** three point one
** three point two

Inserting a blank line will end the first list and start another.

  • one
  • two
  • three
    • three point one
    • three point two
Numbered list
# one
# two<br />spanning more lines<br />doesn't break numbering
# three
## three point one
## three point two
  1. one
  2. two
    spanning more lines
    doesn't break numbering

Code Description
__NOTOC__ Hides the table of contents (TOC).
__NOINDEX__ Tell search engines not to index the page (ie, do not list in search engines' results).
{{TocLeft}} Puts the Table Of Contents (TOC) on the left
{{TocRight}} Puts the Table Of Contents (TOC) on the right
{{Clear}} Makes content wait until existing content is completed in all columns. Often used to stop text from flowing next to unrelated images.
[[Category:NAME]] Add page to category

Stopping text flow

On occasion it is desirable to stop text from flowing around an image. Depending on the web browser's screen resolution and such, text flow on the right side of an image may cause a section header (for instance, == My Header ==) to appear to the right of the image, instead of below it, as a user may expect. The text flow can be stopped by placing {{Clear}} before the text that should start after the image.

Galleries

<gallery>
File:Example.jpg|Item 1
File:Example.jpg
File:Example.jpg|'''bold caption'''
File:Example.jpg
File:Example.jpg| ''italic caption''
File:Example.jpg
</gallery>

NOTE: this gallery has fixed width, so the gallery will always be smaller or wider than the screen. To fix that, you can use a simple list of images (same height is better):

[[File:Example.jpg|x150px|caption]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px|link=Main_Page|This image links to the main page]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px]]
[[File:Example.jpg|x150px]]

caption This image links to the main page
