The Basics

These are the basic styles of MediaWiki. Know these to write and link basic articles in these Lexicon games.

Headings

Use Equals signs (=) to make headers. Each = you use makes your heading a less important one. Use one = for a very important top level heading and two or three for more minor headings.

=== Sample Header Level 3 ===

Displays as

Sample Header Level 3

Lists

For reference, bulleted lists are known as unordered lists, and numbered lists are known as ordinal lists.

Bulleted Lists

Preceed each line with "* ". Mediawiki will make any unbroken series of lines starting with "* " into a bulleted list.

E.g.

* List item 1
* List item 2
* List item 3
* List item N

Translates to:

  • List item 1
  • List item 2
  • List item 3
  • List item N

Numbered Lists

Preceed each line with "# ". Mediawiki will make any unbroken series of lines start with "# " into a numbered list.

E.g.

# List item 1
# List item 2
# List item 3
# List item N

Translates to:

  1. List item 1
  2. List item 2
  3. List item 3
  4. List item N
