==== subpages:
SandBox/Subsand
or simply /Clay? to create a subpage of the current page. Subpages are listed under the main page in the AllTopics? list

Topics (like HomePage and SandBox) are automatically defined by the Wiki whenever you type something in "CamelCaps". You can start a new topic by putting the CamelCaps name in the SandBox. After saving your edits, you'll see the page with a question mark after your topic name. Just click the question mark and you're editing your new topic.

Have Fun!


Any link that ends with .png, .gif, .jpg, .bmp, or .jpeg will be inlined as an image. For instance: . [Note: lower case extensions may be required] There are several wiki's with other cool features (like colored text and automatic categories), but I couldn't figure out how to get the source code for them....

Anyone can change pages which can be a problem or it could be exactly what's needed.... 'tis all a matter of perspective. Click on [View other revisions] at the bottom of the page and you can see what was here. It is conceptually straightforward to fix things if someone wreaks havoc.

Anything in "CamelCaps" is a wiki link. You can type web URLs as well. For instance: http://halsema.org/test.html. To use more traditional 'web style' links use square brackets ([]): [test page]. See TextFormattingRules for more information.

WikiOverview has a nice introduction/overview of wikiness.

Starting a line with a space does the same thing as html's <pre> tag:

 This won't wrap
   nor will this
     - so you can do a formated list
     - or a code listing
     - or a big long line of text that goes on forever and doesn't get wrapped in the display.  This is probably only useful to annoy people and demonstrate that I'm a thoughtless clod!

RFC references are automatically linked (e.g., RFC823 becomes RFC 823) as are ISBN's (ISBN:345794567X generates ISBN 345794567X (amazon.com, search))

strong can be gotten by using triple quotes (that is three single quotes) (''') and emphasis by two single-quotes ('').

Use multiple = signs before and after text for headings, but remember to have a blank space betwee the equal sign and the text. See TextFormattingRules)

DT/DD style lists use ;Term:Definition at the beginning of a line:

Term
Definition:
Fred
A cool name
Starting a line with a colon (:) indents it by using DT/DD with a blank DT:
This is an example starting with a colon
Multiple colons or semi-colons increases the indent level:
One
Using ;
Two
Using ;;
Three
Using ;;;

or (:)
else (::)
we (:::)
could (::::)
be (:::::)
silly (::::::)
Interpretation of wiki formatting can be turnned off with the <nowiki> formatting command. For instance, the above silliness was done with:
:or (:)
::else (::)
:::we (:::)
::::could (::::)
:::::be (:::::)
::::::silly (::::::)

interesting....numbered lists via the # operator:
  1. milk
  2. eggs
  3. cheese
  4. non-dairy creamer

Multiple levels are supported:

  1. A point with a number
  2. Another point with a number
    1. Something else
      1. You get the Picture

-Bullet Lists are also supported:

web style links can be done like this [URL text]. So, if URL is http://halsema.org/test.html and text is "test page", (that is, [http://halsema.org/test.html test page]) you'll get [test page].

HTML tags that are always supported: code, strong, em, tt, b, i, and pre: <b>: bold, <i>: italic, bold-italic,

<pre>: preformatted
A variety of html options and tags can be enabled in the configuration file. Most of it is set off to be a little more secure.

Create a new page by joining words like this - WordWord?
