General Information

  • The Clear template {{Clear}} can be used to stop text wrapping and force any subsequent text below image, tables, etc Note This may not show correctly from Preview, but it does after the Save
  • <!-- ''Comment'' --> will hide text
  • Blank lines in 'template' will create blank lines in output, so they shouldn't be removed
  • <br> or <br/> will NOT create a blank line, (indicates end of a line only, not a blank line), anything following will continue on next line
<br/><br/> (should create one blank line, since it is 'ending 2 lines')
  • {{{group}}} (indicates where a parameter is placed in a template, parameter needs to be defined on user / suggestion page)
|group= (indicates the parameter being defined in the user / suggestion page)
  • ---- (forces a break line at end of table or section, so extra blank lines are not needed before next section is started)
  • {{Example| sample wording }} - (sample wording that will have colored background)
===Sources===
<references />
  • to include reference point in text, [[Space:<space name>#<section header>| "<section header>"]] Note - brackets , number sign, bar, and quotes are needed, substituting Space / page name for <space name> and Header / sub-header name for 'section header' ex: "Numbered Steps"

Numbered Steps

<ol> used to start a list of steps that will be numbered, as well as indent everything until <ol> is used
<li> step to be numbered
<li> next step to be numbered. This should be on new line to keep numbers aligned on left.
</ol> used to end list of numbered steps and indenting
numbered list and indenting will continue until </ol> is entered

Bulleted Steps, ie not numbered

<ul> used to start a list of steps that will have 'bullets'
<li> step to be bulleted
<li> next step to be bulleted. This should be on new line to keep bullets aligned on left.
</ul> used to end list of 'bullets' steps
bullet list will continue until </ul> is entered
