Sandbox

From Aesthetic and Interpretive Understanding 18

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a sandbox, a place for you to test out how Mediawiki tags work. You might first want to try visiting the Help page.

Feel free to add anything you'd like to this page, but try not to delete too many of the examples: you might have to come back here to remember how to embed a video file, or how to create bold and italic text. Remember to click on the "edit" tab if you want to change this page or if you want to see what wiki formatting codes were used to create these examples!

Examples of wiki formatting

You can create headings and sub-headings to help you organize your wiki entry. See the Formatting page for how to do so. When you have more than four headings, sub-headings, or sub-sub-headings total, Wikimedia automatically creates a table of contents for you.

Here is a sub-heading

You can use simple tags in order to create bold text or italic text. Just surround your phrase with two apostrophes for italic, and three apostrophes for bold.

Here is Bold text. And here is Italic text.

I'd like to try beautiful and wonderful

Line breaks work a little oddly in the Mediawiki. If you want to create a line break and start a new paragraph, leave an empty line (i.e., hit return twice).

Then begin your new paragraph. You can also force a line break (or several line breaks) with HTML tags. Typing

Line 1<br>
Line 2<br><br>
Line 3<br><br><br>
Line 4

will give you

Line 1
Line 2

Line 3


Line 4

It's a beautiful life

Here is a sub-sub-heading

Here are some examples of links. A link to another page in the wiki: Main Page.

A link to a page that does not yet exist: Nonexistent page. Nonexistent pages appear in red. Clicking on nonexistent links will let you create them!

A link to an external source.

When we define words on the Terminology page, words like weltliteratur will be automatically underlined with hovertext.

You can also add comments to your wiki article (or to someone else's)  But remember to be nice if you're commenting on someone else's work! . Comments appear as little speech bubble icons: hovering over these icons will reveal the comment.

Citations and References

The Cite extension has been installed.[1]

This allows you to use a tag to define a reference. Footnote numbers are automatically generated.[2]

[3] as opposed to [4]

Finally, when you want to gather and display all the references, you use a references tag. See way down at the bottom of the page. You can get to the references by clicking a footnote, and return to the footnote by clicking the arrow in the references list!
