Wiki Markup Cheat Sheet

Contacts: Charlie Horak (Oak Ridge National Laboratory); Stefano Deiuri (Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste)

This page contains examples of the most commonly used wiki markup code. The links on the menu at left will take you to additional details and more advanced topics.

Getting Started

If you are just getting started using JACoW.org, please read Working in the JACoW.org Wiki, which contains information about logging in and working with pages. If you will be creating new pages, please use the JACoW web page template and review the information on naming and creating pages on the left menu.

If you are new to wikis in general, we strongly recommend reviewing the information at Editing pages. The Documentation Index is another good place to learn about wikis and contains everything from basic editing and FAQs to more advanced topics such as creating forms and directives.

Examples

The easiest way to insert basic wiki markup is to use the icons at the top of the editing window (which you will see when you are logged in and ready to edit a page):

The sections below show examples of markup code, followed by the example as it actually displays on a wiki page.

Links

Link to an external (non-JACoW.org) page:

[[https://ipac17.org/|IPAC17]]

IPAC17

Link to another page on the JACoW.org site:

[[JacowPageTemplate|Jacow Page Template]]

Jacow Page Template

Note that if you are linking to a page within the same directory, you do not need to include anything but the file name. For example, the JACoW page template is in the same directory as this cheat sheet page (NewWeb), so the file name of the page is all that is needed. To link to the contacts page, however, which is in the "Main" directory, the name of the directory must be included. Note that the slash(es) in the URL must be changed to periods for the link to work:
 [[Main.Contacts|Jacow contacts page]]
 Jacow contacts page

Link to a location on the current page. Create an "anchor" for the section you want to link to. The anchor consists of a link with the hashtag symbol and a name you give the section:

[[#Images]]
!!!!This is the images section.

This is the images section.

To create a link to the section, type in a link as normal using square brackets, but use a hashtag symbol and the name of the anchor you created:

[[#Images|Images section]]

Images section

Images

To insert an image, you first need to upload it by clicking on "Upload" in the orange menu, which will take you to the upload page:

Check the URL of the uploads page to make sure you are in the directory where you want the image to be. You can also check the title of the uploads page. For example, note that in the image above, the page title is Attachments for PmWiki.Uploads, so the uploaded file will be in the "PmWiki" directory. Once you have uploaded the file, use the "attach file" icon or type "Attach:[insert filename].
