Help:Wiki markup

From Kingdom Hearts Database
Jump to: navigation, search

This wikitext guide is a brief demonstration of the markup used on the Kingdom Hearts Database. The Kingdom Hearts Database runs on MediaWiki, the same software that runs Wikipedia, and as a result, we use the same markup that is found there, commonly called "wikitext". If you're ever wondering how to do some of the formatting that is used on the Database, you can refer back to this guide.

If you have an account, you can enable MediaWiki's Visual Editor in your account preferences, under "Beta Features." One of the great things about this feature is that, even if you want to keep using the source editor with all the code visible, you can use a toolbar to generate the necessary markup for different formats.
