How to modify text

The wiki uses many codes to organize content and much is different from the RBWiki.
Here you can see, and hopefully learn, the basic codes which will come in handy.

Inline Formatting

What you code What you see
//italic text// italic text
**bold text** bold text
{{monospaced text}} monospaced text
__underline text__ underline text
--strikethrough text-- strikethrough text
normal^^superscript^^ normalsuperscript
normal,,subscript,, normalsubscript
[!-- invisible comment --]
##red|this text is red## this text is red
##FF0000|custom-code## custom-code
[[span style="color:red"]]custom //span// element[[/span]] custom span element
raw text (show coding)


Text Size

Text (font) size can be set with the [[size …]] … [[/size]] tags. These tags can be nested.

Relative text sizes are based on the current font — they increase or decrease the current font size. To specify a relative text size use [[size smaller]], [[size larger]], [[size nem]], or [[size n%]], where n is a 1- to 5-digit number (including an optional decimal point).

What you code What you see
[[size smaller]]smaller text[[/size]] smaller text
[[size larger]]larger text[[/size]] larger text
[[size 80%]]80% of current size[[/size]] 80% of current size
[[size 100%]]100% of current size[[/size]] 100% of current size
[[size 150%]]150% of current size[[/size]] 150% of current size
[[size 0.8em]]80% of current size[[/size]] 80% of current size
[[size 1em]]100% of current size[[/size]] 100% of current size
[[size 1.5em]]150% of current size[[/size]] 150% of current size



Absolute text sizes are not based on the current font size. To specify an absolute text size use [[size xx-small]], [[size x-small]], [[size small]], [[size large]], [[size x-large]], [[size xx-large]], or [[size npx]], where n is a 1- to 5-digit number (including an optional decimal point).

What you code What you see
[[size xx-small]]xx-small text[[/size]] xx-small text
[[size x-small]]x-small text[[/size]] x-small text
[[size small]]small text[[/size]] small text
[[size large]]large text[[/size]] large text
[[size x-large]]x-large text[[/size]] x-large text
[[size xx-large]]xx-large text[[/size]] xx-large text
[[size 7px]]text size 7 pixels[[/size]] text size 7 pixels
[[size 18.75px]]text size 18.75 pixels[[/size]] text size 18.75 pixels


Headings

To make a heading start a line with a "plus". Make as many pluses (up to a maximum of 6) as the heading level you want to get.

What you code What you see
+ Level 1 Heading Level 1 Heading
++ Level 2 Heading Level 2 Heading
+++ Level 3 Heading Level 3 Heading
++++ Level 4 Heading Level 4 Heading
+++++ Level 5 Heading Level 5 Heading
++++++ Level 6 Heading Level 6 Heading


Links

Internal links
Unlike some other wiki engines wikibox.net does not process SqusherAndCapitalized words as page links. Instead any link should be marked with 3 nesting square brackets. If a page address contains disallowed characters the address will be "unixified" to contain only allowed chars. The displayed name however will maintain original form.

What you code What you see Comments
[[[ link-to-a-page ]]] link-to-a-page using raw page name
[[[ link "TO" ą pagE ]]] link "TO" ą pagE automatic purification of destination page
[[[ category:sample page ]]] sample page linked to a page with category
[[[ some page|custom text ]]] custom text using custom text
[[[ doc|Documentation ]]] Documentation linking to an existing page (different color)
[[[ doc#toc1|Section 1 ]]] Section 1 linking to an anchor (first section)
[[[ doc#toc1 ]]] doc linking to an anchor (first section)

Anchors
To place an anchor use [[# anchor-name]] syntax. To refer to an anchor (and scroll to it) use [#anchor-name text to display].
