Basic Editing Guide

Links

To add a new page, create a link to it in an existing page. Then follow the link and you can edit your new page.

Internal links are created with [[Link title]] Link title will be your new page name.


To link to an external page use [http://www.example.com friendly link title] friendly link title will be the text that shows.


alternatively to show the actual link as the text use http://www.tycoononline.nu which will show as: http://www.tycoononline.nu


Images

adding pictures is done in same way as adding new pages so if you create a link then click on it you will be asked to upload the picture.

Pictures can be formatted whilst in use as seen below. Please do try to resize the pictures before upload. Too big and we are simply wasting server disk space and bandwidth, this costs money and takes away from other services we could be providing.

Only images that have been uploaded to Tycoon Online WIKI can be used. To upload images, use the upload page. You can find the uploaded image on the image list.

Headings

For a top-level heading, put it on a separate line surrounded by '=='. For example:

  ==Introduction==

Subheadings use '===', '====', and so on.

Character formatting

What it looks like What you type

Italicized text
Bold text
Italicized & Bold text

''Italicized text''
'''Bold text'''
'''''Italicized & Bold text'''''

A typewriter font for monospace text

Computer code has a colored background and more stringent formatting. Suppose we want to define int main(): <source lang=c>#include <iostream.h> int main ( int argc, char **argv ) {

   cout << "Hello World!";
   return 0;

}</source>

A typewriter font for <tt>monospace   text</tt>

Computer code has a colored background
and more stringent formatting. Suppose we
want to define <code>int  main()</code>:
<source lang=c>#include <iostream.h>
int main ( int argc,  char **argv ) {
    cout << "Hello World!";
    return 0;
}</source>

You can use small text for captions.

You can use <small>small text</small> for captions.

Better stay away from big text, unless it's within small text.

Better stay away from <big>big text</big>, unless
<small> it's <big>within</big> small</small> text.

You can strike out deleted material and underline new material.

You can also mark deleted material and inserted material using logical markup. For backwards compatibility better combine this potentially ignored new logical with the old physical markup.

  • When editing regular Wikipedia articles, just make your changes and do not mark them up in any special way.
  • When editing your own previous remarks in talk pages, it is sometimes appropriate to mark up deleted or inserted material.
You can <s>strike out deleted material</s>
and <u>underline new material</u>.

You can also mark <del>deleted material</del> and
<ins>inserted material</ins> using logical markup.
For backwards compatibility better combine this
potentially ignored new <del>logical</del> with
the old <s><del>physical</del></s> markup.

Suppressing interpretation of markup:

  • Used to show literal data that would otherwise have special meaning.
  • Escape all wiki markups, including that which looks like HTML tags.
  • Does not escape HTML character references.
  • To escape HTML character references such as &rarr; use &amp;rarr;
