It will teach you by providing examples on the most common wiki functions.
The text, images, and layout you see is created by using a special wiki markup language. Once you know the basic tags and code it is extremely easy to add things to the Wiki and edit pages! Wiki markup is a lot simpler than other markup languages such as HTML. This tutorial will teach you the basics. In addition to this tutorial one of the best ways to learn Wiki markup is to visit a page that has something you want to know how to do on it and click the "edit" tab to see how the page was made. Remember learn from examples!
If there is anything not covered here that you wish to learn about, refer to the help contents.
There is no button to create a new page. Pages can generally only be created in two ways.
- Linking to a new page
- Adding the new page to your browser address
Linking to a new page
Lets say from this page I wanted to create a link to a new page called "Tutorial 1 2 3" and in the process create that page. I would use the following code:
[[Tutorial 1 2 3]]
The [[...]] tags signify a link within the wiki.
Lets create the page now:
- Tutorial 1 2 3
If there is nothing on the page the link will show up in red and the page will simply show an edit box, nothing else. Use the edit box to create the page using Wiki markup. Once the page has something on it the link to it will turn blue.
Adding the new page to your browser address
The main page of the wiki as it shows up in your browser is http://wiki.gbatemp.net/index.php/Main_Page
Try changing the last part that says "Main_Page" to anything you want eg: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/index.php/Tutorials_are_fun
Going to the link will bring you to the non-existant page where you have the ability to click the edit tab and begin creating the page.
As a general rule using the internal wiki link tags [[...]] is the best way to create a page as it ensures that people will be able to find the page as there is a link to it somewhere.
The content box you see at the top of this page is created automatically when you have enough headings. To create a heading use the tag:
== Title Here ==
Simple as that. The two equals signs either side of text will create the heading. But what if you want to create a sub-heading? Simple:
=== Sub-Title Here ===
Using three equals signs will create a sub-heading within the original heading. If you want another heading like it again use three equals signs again, or if you want a further sub-sub-heading use four equals signs. To create another normal heading just use two equals signs. The content box at the top of the page will automatically update to show your headings.
Just like on the invision forums GBAtemp uses, there are tags to make your text bold or italic, create links, embed pictures etc. The tags are different to on the forums, but easy to remember.
Bolding is done by adding three ' either side of a word, like this:
'''Text you want bold here'''
Italics are done by adding two ' either side of a word, like this:
''Text you want in italics here''
Bold Italics are done by adding five ' either side of a word (2 for italics 3 for bold), like this:
'''''Text you want bold and italic here'''''
If you want to indent a new paragraph start the line with the : symbol. For example
Internal links within the wiki are done with the follow tag:
[[Page name here]]
For example Main Page
As said in the Creating Pages section you can also link to a page that has not yet been created to create it.
(Hint: Click the 'Edit' tab at the top of this page to see the code I'm using if you are unsure of anything)
External links are created with the following tag:
[http://www.websiteaddress.com Website Name]
That code when used would look like this: Website Name
To upload an image or file to the wiki simply click to the 'Upload file' link in the toolbox on the left hand side of the wiki. Or click the following link: Special:Upload
Images uploaded to the wiki can be posted with the following code:
Where name.jpg is replace it with filename for the image you uploaded. As a general guideline stick with .jpg images as not all image types are supported by the uploader. Abuse of the uploader will result in an ip ban from the wiki and forums. That means no illegal or pornographic content.
To make a thumbnail image appear in the top right hand corner of a page as seen on this page, use this code:
[[Image:imagename.jpg|thumb|Description to appear below the image]]
Place this code at the very top of a page, before any headings etc.
For an example of what adding a categories tag does scroll to the very bottom of the AceKard page. It will show a small box with 'Category: NDS Slot-1 Carts'. Click it!
This will take you to a page that shows all other pages in the same category (they all have the same category code at the bottom of their pages). This is very useful for organising pages and I highly suggest you put a categories tag at the bottom of pages you create. Make sure to keep them uniform as all objects that belong together should have the same category name.
To add a category box place this code at the bottom of a page:
[[Category:Category name here]]
Create a sensible and systematic category name so that the wiki is organised neatly. For the Category link to turn blue you need at least two pages in the same category and some additional text on the page. For example I'm going to create the 'Tutorials' category by placing it at the bottom of this page. Check it out!
If you created a page accidentally, moved a page, or if a page is no longer required, you can request for it to be deleted. Once a page has been marked with a deletion request, a staff member will take a look at it and decide whether deletion of the page is warranted or not, and will proceed to take the appropriate action.
Put the following at the top of the page you would like to make a deletion request for, and save the page:
