Description of Error - 825: Use separator line ----

Wiki syntax has four minuses on a line to make a separator line. It should be used to visually separate paragraphs where wanted. You should not make a visual separator line with ========= since it interferes with captions.


  • "== Header ==": (Correct)
  • " == Header ==": (Wrong Line start with blank)
  • "== Header == Some text": (Wrong Line doesn't end with =)
  • "Some text == Header == ": (Wrong Line doesn't start with =)
  • "== Header === ": (Wrong different number of = signs)
  • "=== Header == ": (Wrong different number of = signs)
  • "======== ": (Wrong, to separate paragraphs use separator line "----")
