Anchors

Anchors are hyperlinks that link to parts within a page. Each wiki page automatically generates anchors for the top of the page and for each section. The general way to do this is as follows:

[[#anchor|anchor description]]

where "anchor" could be "top" or any "section" of your page, and the anchor description is optional. For example, to link to the top of this page, use the code

[[#top|link to top of page]]

which produces link to top of page.

Quote Boxes

To add a quote box, use the following.

Quote Title Goes Here

Direct quote goes here.

-- source for the quote goes here


{{Quote box
 |title = Quote Title Goes Here
 |quote = Direct quote goes here.
 |source = -- source for the quote goes here
 |align = center
 |width = 50%
 |quoted = yes
}}

Small text

To lower the font size (this small), do this:

<SMALL>text here will be small</SMALL>

Superscript

To make text superscript (which looks like this), do this:

<SUP>text here will be superscript</SUP>

Highlighting

To highlight text, use the following:

<span style="background:#d7f5ff">highlighted text here</span>

For more colors, go here.

Colorizing text

To colorize text, do this:

<SPAN STYLE="COLOR:#ff0000">text here will be red</SPAN>

For more colors, go here.

Infobox

This is how to make an infobox for your article.

{{Infobox
| bodystyle    = float:right; valign:top;
| title        = Dr. Peter Kutter
| titlestyle   = 
| image        = [[Image:Dr-Kutter.jpg|175px]]
| imagestyle   = 
| caption      = Caught in the act (2010)
| captionstyle = 
| headerstyle  = background:#d2d2d2;
| labelstyle   = background:#d2d2d2;
| datastyle    = 
| header1      = Creator of:
| data2        = [[Kutter's Clinic]]
| header3      = Benefactors:
| data4        = [[Yvonne Snippit]]
| data5        = [[Boris Mandrake]]
| data6        = [[Miss Eunice Ewe]]
| data7        = [[Stephen Lewis]]
| belowstyle   = background:#d2d2d2;
| below        = 
}}

Notice the numbers after the header and data labels. These numbers must never repeat. For example; if you have header1 and data1 it will not work, you need header1 and data2.

The above table will create the following infobox (below and to the right):

Dr. Peter Kutter
Dr-Kutter.jpg
Caught in the act (2010)
Creator of:
Kutter's Clinic
Benefactors:
Yvonne Snippit
Boris Mandrake
Miss Eunice Ewe
Stephen Lewis



Stop/Reset wrapping

Sometimes wrapping will create layout issues. To fix this, place the following directly above/before the problem text/item:

<BR CLEAR="all">
