Tables can be used to organize data, such as on the State News Leaders page.

Creating a table requires start and end tags:

Start: (:table:) End: (:tableend:)

The first cell in each new row must start with (:cellnr:) and every cell after that should say (:cell:) in consecutive rows in the wiki.

Anchors

Anchors are used to jump to a location farther down or up on the same page.

To define the location on the page you want to jump to, add [[#name]] to the end of the line. This identifies an exact location on the page.

To create the link used to get to this specific point (the anchor), use [[#name|linktext]].

The anchor cannot begin with a digit.

Incorrect: [[#2008]] Correct: [[#SN2008]]

Anchors are case sensitive, so the anchor and location markup must be the same. For example, the link will not work if the anchor is [[#SN2008]] and the link markup reads [[#sn2008|2008]].

Also, spaces will not work in an anchor.

It's hard to predict what sort of content you might want to present in the pages you work on. However, it's necessary to define a consistent page structure. This structure, much like any page on a wiki, is a work in progress and may be subject to change down the road.

Keep your pages as simple and concise as possible. Use level two headers (!!) to divide your page up into sections. Try to limit your pages to anywhere between 3 and 10 major sections. Use a table of contents (see below) when it is appropriate.

Use preformatted structures ( and @@ ) when displaying code or shell commands.

Table of contents

Help now has the PageTableOfContents plugin installed, so the only code needed to generate the table of contents is

This code inserts the table of contents, and inserts anchors above every header. You'll still have to insert links to go back to the top of the page. Insert them at the end of every major section.
