Wiki uses a simple formatting "language" which is designed for plain-text entry. The source text is entered formatted according to strict guidelines, and this text is then converted to HTML (which looks a lot prettier). Select Edit Page to see the source text for the examples on this page.

New: now brackets form links (wikipedia-style) like This too!

Also!! html codes can be used when putting a '$html' string in front of it, as in this color-example:

Fonts and Emphasis

  • Two quotes together ' ' make things italic
  • Three quotes together ' ' ' make things bold
  • Four or more quotes give bold italic
  • Initial <space> makes a line monospaced
  • These modifiers only last until the end of a line
This is monospaced text


  • <space>*<space> makes a bullet list
    • <space><space>*<space> for the 2nd level, etc.
  • <space>1.<space> makes a numbered list
  • You can intermingle numbered and bulleted lists
  • Put each entry on a different line
  • <space>-<space> is a "virtual list" of single lines with HTML <br> after each


  • <space>1:<space> begins a table - you can start at more than 1 if you like
  • <space>1;<space> makes a table with no border
  • All elements with the same number are in the same cell
  • When the number goes up, the next column is used
  • When the number goes down again, the next row is used


  • A single blank line seperates paragraphs
  • A single line containing 4 or more dashes (-) makes a page break
  • > indents lines (quote block)
  • > > indents more, etc.
  • ] centers lines
  • Backquotes ` ` start headings from level 4 to level 1 - they should be after any > or ] characters


  • Inside a table cell, or after ] or >, you are in a new paragraph
  • You can insert new paragraph formatting which applies to only that paragraph
  • So you can indent or center lists and tables
  • ... or you can have indented or centered paragraphs in tables!


  • Any word spelt Like This becomes an internal hyperlink
  • A nolink URL forces no internal hyperlink e.g. WikiFormatting
  • A link URL forces an internal hyperlink e.g. Hyperlink
  • A full URL becomes an external hyperlink e.g. http://www.tinyted.net
  • [1], [2], [3], etc. link to footnotes
  • ISBN 1-57231-548-2 becomes a link to Amazon.com
  • Wiki Server can also deliver files placed in the Pages directory
    • A local URL becomes a local hyperlink e.g. icon.jpg
Image Links

  • An ilocal URL becomes an inline image e.g. Image
  • The newer img tag is a better way - it can work the same way e.g. Image or it can refer to images from the internet, as below:

Special Objects

  • [$<name>] inserts a macro anywhere in the text
  • "$PageTime" inserts the current page's last update time : 06:32pm
  • "$PageDate" inserts the current page's last update date : March 07, 2006
  • "$This" inserts the current page name : Meta Sandbox
  • "$UserName" inserts the current user's name : admin
  • "$UserPerm" inserts the current user's permission string : rwa
  • "$HomePage" inserts a link to the current user's homepage : Start Page
  • "$DefPage" inserts a link to the default page : Start Page


  • [!<name>] inserts the text of a page directly
  • A + symbol appears at the start - this takes you to the page (for editing)
  • The [!<name>] must be the only word on a line
