The ScummVM wiki runs the MediaWiki software.

General Help

Some basic markup is listed below, for those that want to get started without reading the documentation.

Sections

  • Sections are started using markup as such: "=== This is a section ===". Subsections simply use "====" instead. All sections are automatically added to the Table of Contents.

Linking

  • Linking to an offsite resource: [[http://www.url.com/url/ The Link Text]]
  • Linking to another Wiki page: [[Wiki Page]]
  • Linking to another Wiki page, via alternative text: [[Wiki Page|Please click this link!]]
  • Linking to a user: [[users:username|Username]]

Images and Linked Files

  • Files and images can be uploaded using the Upload Page.
  • A list of available images can be viewed at the Image List.
  • Images are displayed in-line with the following markup: [[Image:name.png|Alternate Text]]. PLEASE ALWAYS SPECIFY ALTERNATE TEXT unless the image is pure decoration.
  • Uploaded media can be linked to (eg, not displayed inline) with the markup: [[media:name.jpg|Link Text]]

Lists

  • Using '*' as the first non-whitespace char on a line, will make that line an unordered list item
  • Using '#' as the first non-whitespace char will make that line an ORDERED list item
  • You can nest ('**' or '##') lists, as well as combine multiple types in nested lists ('#*#' for example)

Signatures and timestamps

When adding a comment to a Talk or TODO page, where the identity of the editor is required, use one of the following:

  • ~~~ translates as a link to your user page.
  • ~~~~ translates to your user name and the current date/time.
  • ~~~~~ translates to the date/time.

Other Markup

  • Definition of new terms should be created using the definition markup: ; item : the item's definition
  • Surrounding text by the <nowiki> tag will prevent that block being parsed for wiki commands
  • Most basic HTML can be used, such as tables
