Basic Editing

Most simple editing (e.g. bold, italics, links, section headings, etc.) can be found in the tool bar above the editing window. In case that does not work here is a quick run-down.


 ''italicize text'' by putting 2 apostrophes on each side. 


3 apostrophes will embolden '''the text'''.

Section headings (used to automatically create table of contents)

 == Section Heading == by putting 2 equal signs.  More equal signs creates sub-headings.

Lists (unordered)

Are created by putting a * at the beginning of the item.  More stars created nested lists.

Lists (ordered)

  1. item 1
  2. item 2
Are created by putting a # at the begining of the item.  More number signs creat nested lists.

Superscripts and subscripts

Super<sup>scripts</sup> and sub<sub>scripts</sub>


In a wiki, there are two kinds of links; intra-wiki links (those that lead to other articles on the same wiki) and external links which lead anywhere.

To add a intra-wiki link to the RHESSI wiki

surround the title of the article by [[double brackets]].  Even if the page does not exist the link will be created.

To add an external link

 use the syntax [ external link] 


Images can be added to any article. Images must first be uploaded using the link in the toolbox on the left of the page (upload file). A name and description must then be given. A thumbnail of the image can then be included as follows

Categories are used to maintain some organization to the wiki. To add an article to a category put the following at the end of the page you are editing.


where NAME is the name of the category you want to add it to. Any number of category tags may be added to the page - the page will be listed in all of them.
