This document describes the Wiki Syntax used within the Wikidot.com project.

Any page of any of the sites exists in two different forms: the source code and the compiled code. Source code is what you can edit and what describes the content of the page. Source code is compiled into the (XHTML) code that is sent to the browser when you view/browse the page. The Wiki Syntax is used to create content of the pages by editing the source code.

If you are looking for wiki code snippets ready to copy/paste/modify, please visit our Code Snippets Site.

Inline Formatting

Paragraphs and newlines

Paragraphs are separated by two new lines. One new line produces a… new line.

First paragraph. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. 

Second paragraph. Aenean a libero. Vestibulum adipiscing, felis ac faucibus imperdiet, erat lacus accumsan neque, vitae nonummy lorem pede ac elit.
Just a new line.
Another new line.

First paragraph. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.

Second paragraph. Aenean a libero. Vestibulum adipiscing, felis ac faucibus imperdiet, erat lacus accumsan neque, vitae nonummy lorem pede ac elit.
Just a new line.
Another new line.

Typography

If you do care about typography there are a few ways to improve it in your text:

you type you get
``quotation'' “quotation”
`quotation' ‘quotation’
,,quotation'' „quotation”
dots... dots…
em -- dash em — dash

Literal Text

If you want to escape parsing and produce raw text enclose it in double @@ characters.

This //text// gets **parsed**. 

@@This //text// does not get **parsed**.@@

This text gets parsed.

This //text// does not get **parsed**.

Comments

A comment is a source block that is not rendered in the compiled version. To add a comment to the source use [!-- ... --] construct, e.g.:

[!--
This text will not be rendered.
--]

Headings

To make a heading start a line with a "plus". Make as many pluses as the heading level you want to get.

+ Level 1 Heading
++ Level 2 Heading
+++ Level 3 Heading
++++ Level 4 Heading
+++++ Level 5 Heading
++++++ Level 6 Heading

Table of Contents

To create a list of every heading, with a link to that heading, put a table of contents tag on its own line.

[[toc]]
[[f>toc]] - right-float table of contents
[[f<toc]] - left-float table of contents

Horizontal Rules

Use four dashes or more (----) to create a horizontal rule.

Lists

Bulleted Lists

Make a list element by starting a line with an asterisk. To increase indent put extra spaces
before the asterisk.

* Bullet 1
* Bullet 2
 * Bullet 2.1
  • Bullet 1
  • Bullet 2
    • Bullet 2.1

Numbered Lists

Similarly, you can create numbered lists by starting a paragraph with one or more hashes.

# Item 1
# Item 2
 # Item 2.1
  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
    1. Item 2.1

You can mix bulleted lists and number lists.

Definition Lists

You can create a definition (description) list with the following syntax:

: Item 1 : Something
: Item 2 : Something else
Item 1
Something
Item 2
Something else

Block Quotes

You can mark a blockquote by starting a line with one or more '>' characters, followed by a space and the text to be quoted.

This is normal text here.

> Indent me! The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. \
Now this the time for all good men to come to the aid of \
their country. Notice how we can continue the block-quote \
in the same "paragraph" by using a backslash at the end of \
the line.
>
> Another block, leading to...
>> Second level of indenting. This second is indented even \
more than the previous one.

Back to normal text.

This is normal text here.

Indent me! The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Now this the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. Notice how we can continue the block-quote in the same "paragraph" by using a backslash at the end of the line.
Another block, leading to…

Second level of indenting. This second is indented even more than the previous one.

Back to normal text.

Links

Internal links

Unlike some other wiki engines wikibox.net does not process SqusherAndCapitalized or CamelCase 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 type what you get 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)

URLs

what you type what you get comments
http://www.wikidot.com http://www.wikidot.com simple inline link
[http://www.wikidot.com wikidot] wikidot named link (custom anchor)
*http://www.wikidot.com
[*http://www.wikidot.com wikidot]
http://www.wikidot.com
wikidot
opens in a new window
[# empty link] empty link link with href="javascript:;" i.e. not leading anywhere. usefull when constructing pull-down menus

Anchors

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

Emails

what you type what you get comments
support@example.com moc.elpmaxe|troppus#moc.elpmaxe|troppus simple inline email
[support@example.com email me!] moc.elpmaxe|troppus#!em liame custom anchor

Although we discourage anyone from putting his/her email address on the web, WikiDot engine provides a simple scrambling mechanism to prevent automated bots from reading emails. Each email is scrambled and it is decoded in the client's browser. So it is not 100% spam-safe, but much safer than plain-text emails.

InterWiki

To link directly to a Wikipedia article you can use a syntax:

what you type what you get
[wikipedia:Albert_Einstein] Albert_Einstein
[wikipedia:Albert_Einstein Albert] Albert

Other links defined by example:

  • [google:free+wiki] - search google for the "free wiki" term
  • [dictionary:wiki] - look up definitions of the word wiki from dictionary.reference.com

Images

Single images

To insert an image into the page use the following syntax:

[[image image-source attribute1="value1" attribute2="value2" ...]]

And here is the list of allowed attributes:

attribute name allowed values example value description
link wiki page name or URL "wiki-page"
"http://www.example.com"
makes image a link to another page or web address; this is ignored when using Flickr as a source; prepend the link with '*' to make it open in a new window
alt any string "a photo of me" text substitution when image not available
width number of pixels "200px" forces width of a image when displaying
height number of pixels "200px" forces height of a image when displaying
style valid CSS style definition "border: 1px solid red; padding: 2em;" adds extra CSS style to the image
class CSS class "mystyle" forces the image CSS class - suggested use only with customized themes
size "square" - 75x75 pixels
"thumbnail" - 100 on longest side
"small" - 240 on longest side
"medium" - 500 on longest side
"large" - 1024 on longest side (only for Flickr large images)
"original" - original image (Flickr only)
any of allowed ;-) displays a resized image; great for thumbnails
if flickr is the source it pulls required size from a Flickr server;
this option has effect only on local images or Flickr images

size attribute works very well with local files (attached to pages) not only with image files, but with e.g. PDF or PostScript. See this page for more details.

The image-source can be one of the following:

source type format example value description
URL address any valid URL address http://www.example.com/image.jpg displays image from the web address
file attachment (current page) filename exampleimage.jpg displays image attached to the current page
file attachement (different page) /another-page-name/filename /another-page/exampleimage.jpg displays image attached to a different page
flickr image flickr:photoid flickr:83001279 displays image from Flickr and links to the original Flickr page
flickr image (private) flickr:photoid_secret flickr:149666562_debab08866 displays image from Flickr and links to the original Flickr page; if the secret is provided the image is available despite being marked as non-public

To make the linked document in a new window you can either prepend the link attribute with '*' (e.g. link="*http://www.example.com" or prepend the src element with '*' (e.g. *flickr:149666562_debab08866, *image-file etc.) for images that automatically generate links.

To choose horizontal alignment use:

  • [[=image… - centered image
  • [[<image… - image on left
  • [[>image… - image on right
  • [[f<image… - image on left floating (surrounded by text)
  • [[f>image… - image on right floating (surrounded by text)

Gallery of images

To insert a series of images into a page content use the [[gallery]] element:

[[gallery size="image-size"]]

or
[[gallery size="image-size"]]
: image-source1 attribute1="value1" attribute2="value2" ...
: image-source2 attribute1="value1" attribute2="value2" ...
...
[[/gallery]]

The only allowed attribute within the [[gallery]] tag is size with allowed values: "square", "thumbnail", "small", "medium".

If the [[gallery]] tag is invoked without a list of images it automatically displays rescaled images (thumbnails) of imageable files attached to the current page (this also include thumbnails for any .pdf or .ps document).

If [[gallery]] is invoked with a list of images, only these images are displayed. image-source must not be a URL in this case. Allowed "per-image attributes are:

  • link - URL or wiki page name (does not work with Flickr images to be o.k. with Flickr terms)
  • alt - alternative text when the image is not available

To make a document open in a new window the same rules as with a single image applies.

Also see FlickrGallery module if you wish to import images from Flickr.

Code Blocks

Create code blocks by using [[code]]…[[/code]] tags (each on its own line).

This is an example code block!

To create PHP blocks that get automatically colorized when you use PHP tags, simply surround the code with [[code type="php"]]…[[/code]] tags).

To get PHP code colorized you should surround it with <?php.. ?>.

WikiDot.com uses PEAR::Text_Highlighter and supports a number of color schemes. Here is what is supported (allowed type values):

php, html, cpp, css, diff, dtd, java, javascript, perl, python, ruby, xml.

[[code type="php"]]
<?php
/* comment */
for($i=0; $i<100; $i++){
echo "number".$i."\n";
}
?>
[[/code]]
<?php
/* comment */
for($i=0; $i<100; $i++){
echo "number".$i."\n";
}
?>

Tables

Simple tables

You can create simple tables using pairs of vertical bars:

||~ head 1 ||~ head 2 ||~ head 3 ||
|| cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||
|||| long cell 4 || cell 5 ||
||cell 6 |||| long cell 7 ||
|||||| looong cell 8||
head 1 head 2 head 3
cell 1 cell 2 cell 3
long cell 4 cell 5
cell 6 long cell 7
looong cell 8
|| lines must start and end || with double vertical bars || nothing ||
|| cells are separated by || double vertical bars || nothing ||
|||| you can span multiple columns by || starting each cell ||
|| with extra cell |||| separators ||
|||||| but perhaps an example is _
the easiest way to see ||
lines must start and end with double vertical bars nothing
cells are separated by double vertical bars nothing
you can span multiple columns by starting each cell
with extra cell separators
but perhaps an example is
the easiest way to see

For a newline inside the table cell use _ (underscore) at the end of the line (see the example above).

Advanced (custom) tables

To create more advanced tables, special tags can be used that can accept class and style attributes for managing appearance. To create an advanced table use the following syntax:

[[table]]
[[row]]
[[cell style="border: 1px solid silver; background-color: yellow;"]]
call 0.0
[[/cell]]
[[cell style="border: 1px solid silver"]]
call 0.1
[[/cell]]
[[/row]]
[[row style="border: 1px solid silver"]]
[[cell]]
call 1.0
[[/cell]]
[[cell style="border: 1px solid silver; background-color: yellow;"]]
call 1.1
[[/cell]]
[[/row]]
[[/table]]
transforms to…
cell 0.0 cell 0.1
cell 1.0 cell 1.1

Each of elements [[table]], [[row]] and [[cell]] can accept attributes style and class and they are transformed to (X)HTML tags: <table>, <tr> and <td>.

An example of using tables for page layout can be found on our Snippets Wiki at: http://snippets.wikidot.com/code:layout-with-tables .

Tables can be nested.

Block formatting elements

Left, right, centered and justified

To apply horizontal alignment to a block of text use:

[[<]] ... [[/<]] align left
[[>]] ... [[/>]] align right
[[=]] ... [[/=]] align center
[[==]] ... [[/==]] align justified

E.g.

[[=]]
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.\
Aenean a libero. Vestibulum adipiscing, felis ac faucibus \
imperdiet, erat lacus accumsan neque, vitae nonummy lorem \
pede ac elit. 

Maecenas in urna. Curabitur hendrerit risus vitae ligula.
[[/=]]

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean a libero. Vestibulum adipiscing, felis ac faucibus imperdiet, erat lacus accumsan neque, vitae nonummy lorem pede ac elit.

Maecenas in urna. Curabitur hendrerit risus vitae ligula.

To center a single line use = at the beginning:

= Centered line

Centered line

Custom div blocks

To improve the layout you can use [[div]] ... [[/div]] elements which transform to html @div> ... </div@ blocks.
Allowed attributes are: class and style only but this should be more than enough to create desired layout.

[[div]] blocks can be nested.

Below is an example how to create a 2-column layout using div block:

[[div style="float:left; width: 45%; padding: 0 2%"]]
left column left column left column left column left column
left column left column left column left column left column
[[/div]]
[[div style="float:left; width: 45%; padding: 0 2%"]]
right column right column right column right column right column
right column right column right column right column right column
[[/div]]

~~~~~

left column left column left column left column left column left column left column left column left column left column

right column right column right column right column right column right column right column right column right column right column

The ~~~~ element is used to clear floats and translates more or less to <div style="clear:both"></div>).

Custom [[div]] blocks can be used to create very advanced page layouts.

Math

WikiDot.com uses LaTeX to render beautiful equations. For these who know LaTeX syntax using wikidot equations should be quite obvious. Please

Equations

Simply put the equation between [[math label]] … [[/math]] block tags (the label is optional). The equation is rendered within LaTex \begin{equation} ... \end{equation} environment. Please refer to any LaTeX reference manual for details about syntax.

[[math label1]]
\rho _{\rm GJ} = -\sigma (r) \left[ (1 - \eta _{\ast }^2 {\kappa \over {\eta ^3}}) \cos \chi \right.
+ \left. {3\over 2} \theta (\eta) H(\eta)
\xi \sin \chi \cos \phi \right]
[[/math]]
(1)
\begin{align} \rho _{\rm GJ} = -\sigma (r) \left[ (1 - \eta _{\ast }^2 {\kappa \over {\eta ^3}}) \cos \chi \right. + \left. {3\over 2} \theta (\eta) H(\eta) \xi \sin \chi \cos \phi \right] \end{align}

To refer to a labeled equation simply use [[eref label]] to get a raw number or e.g. Eq. ([[eref label1]]) which gives Eq. (1).

To break long equations use a type="eqnarray" attribute, e.g.

[[math label2 type="eqnarray"]]
\lefteqn{ \cos x = 1        
-\frac{x^{2}}{2!} +{} } \\
& & {}+\frac{x^{4}}{4!}
-\frac{x^{6}}{6!}+{}\cdots
[[/math]]
(2)
\begin{eqnarray} \lefteqn{ \cos x = 1 -\frac{x^{2}}{2!} +{} } \\ & & {}+\frac{x^{4}}{4!} -\frac{x^{6}}{6!}+{}\cdots \end{eqnarray}

Inline math

To use math expressions inside text (sentence) use [[$ ... $]] block tags.

[[$ E = mc^2 $]] is much more popular than 
[[$ G_{\mu\nu} - \Lambda g_{\mu\nu} = \kappa T_{\mu\nu} $]]

$E = mc^2$ is much more popular than $G_{\mu\nu} - \Lambda g_{\mu\nu} = \kappa T_{\mu\nu}$

Footnotes

To make footnotes in the text use [[footnote]] block. To force the list of footnotes
to appear not at the end of the page, use [[footnoteblock]].

Some text[[footnote]]And a small footnote.[[/footnote]]. Here we go 
with another footnote[[footnote]]Content of another footnote.[[/footnote]].

[[footnoteblock]]

Some text1. Here we go with another footnote2.

If you are not satisfied with the default title ("Footnotes") you can force your own title by using [[footnoteblock title="Custom title"]] or even do not use title at all (title="").

Bibliography

The bibliography block is defined by [[bibliography]]...[[/bibliography]]. Each bibliography item has the form:
label : full reference
To cite a bibliography entry use ((bibcite label)).

The first pulsar was observed by J. Bell and A. Hewish [((bibcite bell))]. Another reference [see ((bibcite guy))].

[[bibliography]]
: bell : Bell, J.; Hewish, A.; Pilkington, J. D. H.; Scott, P. F.; and Collins, R. A. //Observation of a Rapidly Pulsating Radio Source.// Nature 217, 709, 1968.
: guy : Guy, R. K. //Modular Difference Sets and Error Correcting Codes.// §C10 in Unsolved Problems in Number Theory, 2nd ed. New York: Springer-Verlag, pp. 118-121, 1994.
[[/bibliography]]

The first pulsar was observed by J. Bell and A. Hewish [1]. Another reference [see 2].

Bibliography
1. Bell, J.; Hewish, A.; Pilkington, J. D. H.; Scott, P. F.; and Collins, R. A. Observation of a Rapidly Pulsating Radio Source. Nature 217, 709, 1968.
2. Guy, R. K. Modular Difference Sets and Error Correcting Codes. §C10 in Unsolved Problems in Number Theory, 2nd ed. New York: Springer-Verlag, pp. 118-121, 1994.

If you are not satisfied with the default title ("Bibliography") you can force your own title by using [[bibliography title="Custom title"]] or even do not use title at all (title="").

Include other pages

If you want to include contents of another page use:

 [[include pagename]]

The include tag should start and end with a newline.

The [[include]] tag can also take parameters and substitute variables in the included source. To denote variables in the included page use:

{$var1}, {$number_books}, {$title}, {$variable_name}, {$variableName}

and in the including page use:

 [[include pagename var1=value1 | number_books = 43 | title=Best Wiki Ever 
| variable_name = just a variable
| variableName = another variable
]]

As you can see you can split variable definitions over several lines for cleaner code.

NOTE: includes and images/files: The [[include]] works just by inserting the page source at a given place. If you have any images or files attached in the included page and you refer to them as [[image filename.jpg]] in the included page, please rather use the image/file source with the name of the page too, e.g. [[image included-page/filename.jpg]]

Embedding media

Video

To embed video directly into the page use [[embedvideo]] ... [[/embedvideo]] block.
Between the the "embedding html code" should be placed from any of the following video online galleries:

E.g.

[[embedvideo]]
<embed style="width:400px; height:326px;" id="VideoPlayback" align="middle"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
src="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=263244138622602613"
allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" quality="best" bgcolor="#ffffff" scale="noScale" salign="TL" 
FlashVars="playerMode=embedded"> </embed>
[[/embedvideo]]

Audio

To embed audio use [[embedaudio]] ... [[/embedaudio]] and the html embedding code found on the audio hosting website.

Currently supported are:

E.g.

[[embedaudio]]
<embed src="http://www.odeo.com/flash/audio_player_standard_gray.swf" 
quality="high" width="300" height="52" name="audio_player_standard_gray" 
align="middle" allowScriptAccess="always" wmode="transparent"  
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" flashvars="audio_id=99133&audio_duration=282.0&valid_sample_rate=true&external_url=http://www.vitalpodcasts.com/FileSystem/podcasts/89/opensource_episode1.mp3" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
</embed><br /><a style="font-size: 9px; padding-left: 110px; color: #f39; 
letter-spacing: -1px; text-decoration: none" href="http://odeo.com/audio/99133/view">
powered by <strong>ODEO</strong></a>
[[/embedaudio]]

Embedding code from other sites

Sometimes web sites (mainly social-oriented ones) allow you to paste a code block directly into other pages in order to increase your site functionality or embed some contet from the original site.

[[embed]] tag

The [[embed]] block tag allows you to do the same with your wiki pages. E.g. to display del.icio.us tag cloud as generated from http://del.icio.us/help/tagrolls simply wrap the html code:

[[embed]]
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://del.icio.us/feeds/js/tags/michal_frackowiak?icon;size=12-35;color=87ceeb-0000ff;title=my%20del.icio.us%20tags"></script>
[[/embed]]

For the list of supported services please see the page: Embedding code from other services.

Please note that if the code contains <script type="text/javascript"… i.e. just JavaScript, the content will not be fully rendered when you click preview while editing the page. It should be there however when you view the page afterwards.

[[iframe]] element

Using the iframe element one can embed content of any other web page. The syntax is

[[iframe url-source attributes]]

and it translates into HTML tags <iframe src="url-source" attributes></iframe>. The allowed attributes are: frameborder (0 or 1 allowed), align (left, right, top, bottom, middle), height (number of pixels or %), width (number of pixels or %), scrolling (yes or no), class, style

Iftags

Tags are kind of special labels for a page, manually added in by editors by clicking on the tags link at the page options buttons on bottom of a page. Every tag can be max 64 characters long, tags are "space" separated and there is no limit of tags per page. Tags are very useful to label pages and then it's easy to create Tag Cloud, which allow to find interesting pages or topics much faster.

Special tags start with an underline: they are not automatically shown in tag clouds, but they can be used as special limitations in [[iftag]] conditions. Tags can be used in ListPages Module with generic conditions ( +, - ) too.

Iftag is a special condition question. You can use it on every page to "react" on tags and set up on the particular page used .

Syntax:

[[iftags +tag1 -tag2 tag3]] ... [[/iftags]]

where the +/-"tag#" stands for the requested tag-indexes.
  • + before a tagname means - this tag must exist, (tag without a modifier works in a same way)
  • - before a tagname means - this tag must not exist.

Example:

[[iftags +science]]
This page is labeled as: science.

Click here to view more science articles >
[[/iftags]]

[[iftags +bug -fixed]]
This is a bug, but it's not fixed yet.
[[/iftags]]

Modules

Modules are independent widgets that can be placed in the pages. The general syntax is:
[[module ModuleName param1="value1" param2="value2" ...]]

To read more about modules see the modules section of the documentation.

Attached files

what you type what it means
[[file filename | custom-text]] produces a link to a file attached to this page.
custom-text changes the name of a link (custom-text will be displayed instead of the file name).
[[file /another-page/filename | custom-text]] produces a link to a file attached to another-page

The destination file must be first attached to the page — by clicking "files" and "upload file" from the options at the bottom of any page.

Users

what you type what you get comments
[[user user-name]]
e.g. [[user michal frackowiak]]
michal frackowiak user info (no buddy icon)
[[*user user-name]]
e.g. [[*user michal frackowiak]]
michal frackowiakmichal frackowiak user info (with buddy icon)

Social bookmarking

It is easy to add "social bookmarking" buttons to your pages — just write [[social]] (without any parameters) and get:

BlinkListblogmarksdel.icio.usdiggFarkfeedmelinksFurlLinkaGoGoNewsVineNetvouzRedditYahooMyWebFacebook

This is equivalent to:

[[social blinkbits,blinklist,blogmarks,co.mments,connotea,del.icio.us,de.lirio.us,digg,fark,feedmelinks,furl,linkagogo,ma.gnolia,newsvine,netvouz,rawsugar,reddit,scuttle,shadows,simpy,smarking,spurl,tailrank,wists,yahoomyweb,facebook]]

You can also choose only selected services, e.g. to choose digg, furl and del.icio.us use:

[[social digg,furl,del.icio.us,facebook]]

and get: diggFurldel.icio.usFacebook

Tip: use social bookmarking! It is always a good idea to put social shortcuts under an article or inside your side bar.

Standalone buttons (page options)

Somehow it might be convenient to hide the default page options and present only selected buttons to the users. The syntax for it is:

[[button type options]]

Where the type is: edit, edit-append, edit-sections, history, print, files, tags, source (view page source), backlinks, talk (works similar as in MediaWiki/Wikipedia).

Possible attributes are:

  • text — alternative text to be displayed
  • class — CSS class of the A element
  • style — CSS style definition

For some nice "view source" and "print" buttons with icons you can use the following code:

[[>]]
[[button source style="background-image: url(http://www.wikidot.com/local--files/files/view-source.png); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: bottom right; padding-right: 20px; color: #444"]]
[[button print style="background-image: url(http://www.wikidot.com/local--files/files/document-print.png); background-repeat: no-repeat; background-position: bottom right; padding-right: 20px;color: #444"]]
[[/>]]

to get:

Layout elements

Tab view

To generate a tabview, i.e. a set of tabs, the following syntax can be used:

[[tabview]]
[[tab Title of Tab No. 1]]
