Instant TWiki Shorthand

If you can enter text, write an email, you're ready for TWiki. Use simple, intuitive TWiki shorthand to get even more control - instantly!

  • Separate each paragraph with a blank line.

  • To display a word or phrase in bold type, put it in asterisks: *bold type*.

  • To display a word or phrase in italic, put it in underscores: _italic_.

  • To display a word or phrase in bold italic, put it in double underscores: __bold italic__.

  • To link to another Wiki topic, type the WikiWord for that topic. To link to a Wiki topic in another web, type the name of the web, and a dot, first: Test.WebHome.

    • When entering WikiName signatures - like, guest - include the Main as a prefix, since all TWiki member pages are in the Main web: Main.YourName.

  • If you enter a WikiWord for a topic that doesn't exist, it appears highlighted, with a question mark link at the end, prompting you (or someone else) to start off the new topic by clicking the ? - FreshTopic (try clicking the ?, but don't save, or you'll create a FreshTopic page and ruin this example).

  • To prevent a WikiWord from becoming a link, type <nop> first, <nop>WikiWord = WikiWord

  • To indent with a bullet, enter [space][space][space][asterisk][space].
    • Use multiples of 3 spaces to start nested bullets.
      • That's 3-6-9-...
    1. Start items in a numbered list with [space][space][space][1][space].
    2. The "1" (or any number) will be replaced by the correct number, in order.

  • Always start counting spaces for bullets and such from the beginning of a new line.

  • To include an image, type its URL. You also can Attach an image to the page and display it with text

  • To display a word or phrase in MONOSPACED type, put it in equal signs: =like this=.
    Use ==two== for bold: bold mono.

     Surround code excerpts, filenames, and other
     unformatted text with <pre> or </pre>
     or the special TWiki use <verbatim> and 
     </verbatim> tags.

  • Use three (or more) consecutive hyphens expands into a horizontal rule: ---
