The "Table of contents" box you see at the top of this page will appear automatically when you have used 4 or more headings. First level headings are shown as x, 2rd level as x.x and so on.

*** Third level list object
* Another first level list object
  • First level list object
    • Second level list object
      • Third level list object
  • Another first level list object


Numbered lists

You can make numbered lists with "#".

# First level list object
## Second level list object
### Third level list object
# Another first level list object
  1. First level list object
    1. Second level list object
      1. Third level list object

Definition lists

;item
: the item's definition
item
the item's definition


Images

You can insert images using the syntax:

[[Image:filename|options|caption text]]

The last item added will always be considered the caption text.


Image without alt-text

[[Image:Logo2.png]]

File:Logo2.png


Image with alt-text

You add "|caption text" after the image link. This is the text most browsers will show when you hover over the image with the mouse.

[[Image:Logo2.png|our logo]]

File:Logo2.png

Image options

File:Logo2.png

thumbnail, thumb
Generates an automatically resized thumbnail image (either reduced or enlarged).
Caption text is displayed directly underneath. An "enlarge"-icon is added.
If you do not specify where the image should be placed it will be placed to the right.
Example to the right:
[[Image:Logo2.png|thumb|ourlogo]]


right
Makes the image right-aligned.


left
Same as above, but left aligned.


center
Same as above, but centred.


none
The image will be rendered in-line, even if the thumbnail-option is set.


File:Logo2.png

frame
The image will have a frame, regardless of whether it is a thumb, and the caption text will be included as a visible caption.
Example to the right:


sizepx
Renders a version of the image that's [size] pixels wide (e.g. '150px').
Height is computed to keep the aspect ratio (i.e. the shape of the image).
This allows both size reduction and enlargement.


Combining options
You can combine the options as you like. Example (as you see below resizing is often not very good):
[[Image:Logo2.png|50px|left|none|Our logo]]

File:Logo2.png


[[Image:Logo2.png|none|frame|our logo]]

Additional hints

You can stop the wiki system processing the text (to avoid unwanted formatting) by putting <nowiki></nowiki> around the text you want to parse directly.
