This page covers the basic markup for formatting text, links and pictures on the wiki.
Any text can be made into a headline by placing two equals signs on both sides of the text. The word "Headlines" above this is an example of a headline.
A sub-headline can be made using three equals signs on both sides of the text, and a sub-sub headline can be made using four.
Text can be bolded by placing three single quotes around the text.
'''This text''' is bold.
This text is bold.
A bullet list can be created by placing an asterisk before each item in the list.
* Fun House * Magic Carpet * Speedway
- Fun House
- Magic Carpet
Lists can also be numbered by using the number sign (#) instead of an asterisk.
In a box
Pre-formatted text can be placed in a box by indenting each line of the text by one space.
This line has been indented by one space. This line has too.
Some things (like headlines) don't work inside these boxes.
To another page on the wiki
Links to other pages on the wiki are created by placing two sets of square brackets around the name of the page you're linking to. This is case sensitive (except for the first letter).
[[Cannibal]] really is longer than [[Roller Coaster]] or [[Colossus]].
To an outside page
To link to an outside page you can just enter the URL of the page.
With alternate text
If you want to use specific text for the link, place a space after the URL, then add the text you want and surround the whole thing with one set of square brackets
