Hints for Editing

1. Font Styles (anywhere):

  • ''Test text'' – Test text (italics)
  • '''Test text''' – Test text (bold)
  • <tt>Test text</tt>Test text (monospace font)
  • <big>Test text</big>Test text (bigger font)
  • <sup>Test text</sup> - Test text (superscript)
  • <sub>Test text</sub> - Test text (subscript)
  • <center>Test text</center> -
    Test text (text centered in page or column)

2. Heading Styles (beginning of line):

Headings must be placed at the beginning of a line and are nested, using distinct font styles.


  • =Major page division= Very Large Font
  • ==Sections of page== Large Font
  • ===Subsections=== Medium Bold Font
  • ====Sub-subsection==== Small Bold Font
  • ====<big><big><big>Caveat!</big></big></big>====

Important cautionary point, still nested within a sub-section

Major page division

Sections of page

Subsections

Sub-subsection

Caveat!

3. Text Formatting (beginning of line):

  • {{Text|Language|<Text Text Text>}} – puts banner on first line, then Text Text Text on following lines.
  • {{Translation|Language|<Text Text Text>}} – puts banner on first line, then Text Text Text on following lines, but categorizes in Category:Translations instead of Category:Texts
  • {{Text|Simple|<Text Text Text>}} – omits banner, Text Text Text on second line.
  • Examples:
{{top}}
{{top}}
{{Text|Latin|

Hodie Salvator apparuit:
Hodie in terra canunt Angeli,

Hodie exsultant justi, dicentes:

{{Text|English|
Behold, the morning sun
Begins his glorious way;
His beams through all the nations run,
And life and light convey.
But where the gospel comes
It spreads diviner light;
It calls dead sinners from their tombs,
And gives the blind their sight.
How perfect is thy word!
And all thy judgments just!
For ever sure thy promise, Lord,
And men securely trust.
My gracious God, how plain
Are thy directions given!
O may I never read in vain,
But find the path to heaven!}}
{{mdl|3}}
{{Text|Simple|
I hear thy word with love,
And I would fain obey:
Send thy good Spirit from above
To guide me, lest I stray.
O who can ever find
The errors of his ways?
Yet with a bold, presumptuous mind
I would not dare transgress.
Warn me of every sin,
Forgive my secret faults,
And cleanse this guilty soul of mine,
Whose crimes exceed my thoughts.
While with my heart and tongue
I spread thy praise abroad,
Accept the worship and the song,
My Savior and my God.}}

English.png English text

Behold, the morning sun
Begins his glorious way;
His beams through all the nations run,
And life and light convey.

But where the gospel comes
It spreads diviner light;
It calls dead sinners from their tombs,
And gives the blind their sight.

How perfect is thy word!
And all thy judgments just!
For ever sure thy promise, Lord,
And men securely trust.

My gracious God, how plain
Are thy directions given!
O may I never read in vain,
But find the path to heaven!

 

I hear thy word with love,
And I would fain obey:
Send thy good Spirit from above
To guide me, lest I stray.

O who can ever find
The errors of his ways?
Yet with a bold, presumptuous mind
I would not dare transgress.

Warn me of every sin,
Forgive my secret faults,
And cleanse this guilty soul of mine,
Whose crimes exceed my thoughts.

While with my heart and tongue
I spread thy praise abroad,
Accept the worship and the song,
My Savior and my God.

4. Columns:

Basic format:
{{top}}
(A-Text or other commands)
{{middle|c}}   where c = number of columns; obviously needs to be c - 1 {{middle}} commands between {{top}} and {{bottom}}
(B-More text or commands) -- if this is a continuation of the last column, use {{Text|Simple|...}} rather than {{Text|<Language>}}
{{bottom}}
(See section "Text Formatting" above for examples.)

5. Hidden Text:

  • <!-- Text Not Visible -->

6. Tables:

One way to do it (three-column table):
{| class="wikitable" border=0 cellpadding=3px
!style="background:#ffffff;"|Column 1 Heading
!style="background:#fffacd;"|Column 2 Heading
!style="background:#fffacd;"|Column 3 Heading
|-
|(Column 1 Line 1)
|(Column 2 Line 1)
|(Column 3 Line 1)
|-
|(Column 1 Line 2)
|(Column 2 Line 2)
|(Column 3 Line 2)
|-
| …
| …
| …
|-
|}
Another way (five-column table):
{|class="sortable wikitable" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3px" style="border: solid 1px"
!style="border-bottom: 1px solid"|No.
!style="border-bottom: 1px solid"|Col1 Head
!width=100 style="border-bottom: 1px solid"|Col2 Head
!style="border-bottom: 1px solid"|Col3 Head
!style="border-bottom: 1px solid"|Col4 Head
|-
|align="right"|1||(Col 1a)||(Col 2a)||(Col 3a)||(Col 4a)
|-
|rowspan="2" align="right"|2||(Col 1b)||(Col 2b)||(Col 3b)||(Col 4b)
|-
||(Col 1c)||(Col 2c)||(Col 3c)||(Col 4c)
|-
|align="right"|3||(Col 1d)||(Col 2d)||(Col 3d)||(Col 4d)
| … || … || … || …
|-
|}
Y I E L D S
Column 1 Heading Column 2 Heading Column 3 Heading
(Column 1 Line 1) (Column 2 Line 1) (Column 3 Line 1)
(Column 1 Line 2) (Column 2 Line 2) (Column 3 Line 2)
No. Col1 Head Col2 Head Col3 Head Col4 Head
1 (Col 1a) (Col 2a) (Col 3a) (Col 4a)
2 (Col 1b) (Col 2b) (Col 3b) (Col 4b)
(Col 1c) (Col 2c) (Col 3c) (Col 4c)
3 (Col 1d) (Col 2d) (Col 3d) (Col 4d)
... ...

7. Indents and lists

  • * (asterisk) at beginning of line makes a bullet
  • # (#) at beginning of line makes numbered list
  • #* (#*) at beginning of line makes bullet within the last #-numbered line
  • ## (##) at beginning of line makes number within the last #-numbered line
Example 1
#My goals are these
#*Show you how to to do bullets
#*Show you how to do numbered lists
#*Try it and see
#Or if you miss the point
#*You can ask me
#*Or an Administrator
  1. My goals are these

    • Show you how to do numbered lists
