This article explains how to format articles on TsuburayaWiki. Please note that it is highly recommended that you edit using source editor when formatting articles.


To understand how to edit articles and for more information on editing, please read Help:How To.

Links

[[Ultraman]]
[[Ultraman|Original Ultraman]]
  • Original Ultraman (A link to the page called "Ultraman" with the text "Original Ultraman")
[[User:UltramanWiki]]
[http://wikizilla.org Godzilla Wiki]
  • Godzilla Wiki (A link to the website wikizilla.org with the text "Godzilla Wiki")

Text Formatting

''text''
  • text - Italics (two apostrophes on each side}
'''text'''
  • text - Bold (three apostrophes on each side}
<u>text</u>
  • text (underline)
~~~
~~~~
<tt>text</tt>
  • text (typewriter font for code)
X<sup>2</sup>, H<sub>2</sub>O
  • X2, H2O (superscript and subscript)
<nowiki>'''text'''</nowiki>
  • Does not format the text into text
Unformatted Text

Putting a blank space at the start of a line stops its contents being formatted.

Headings

Headings are big dividers on pages, and they show up in the table of contents at the top if the page is large enough.

==heading==
  • A <h2> heading, like "Headings" (above)
==='''heading'''===
  • A <h3> heading, like "Third Level" (below)

Third Level

====heading====
  • A <h4> heading, like "Fourth Level" (below)

Fourth Level

  • A <h5> heading, like "Fifth Level" (below)
Fifth Level

Please do not use "=Heading=", because that creates a first-level heading that should only be used on page titles, which are implemented automatically.

Lists

  • One asterisk (*) makes the first item in a bulleted list, like this one
  • Two asterisks (**) make the next line in
      • Three
        • Four
      • Three
  • one
    • two
      • Three
  1. One hash (#) makes the first item in a numbered list
    1. Two hashes (##) make the next item
    2. And so on
      1. And so on
  2. The same as the bulleted list

Page Formatting

This is plain text.

A single colon (:) indents this text once
You can repeat this for a new line too
Two colons (::) indents twice
Three (:::) indents three times.
etc.
#REDIRECT [[User:TsuburayaWiki]]
  • This will redirect the current page to the page you mention. This should be used for other words that mean the same thing. For example, the page Z-Ton redirects to Zetton, because they are just two different words for the same thing. There's a button for this in source mode.


New lines

To create a new paragraph, the "enter" key must be pressed twice after the end of a paragraph. For example:

One
two

Will render as:

One two

As you see, the "two" is combined with the "One" because there is only 1 new line in between them. To successfully create a new paragraph, there have to be 2 lines (one empty line in between the two), as follows:

One

two

Which will result in:

One

two

Single-space separation should only ever be used with non-text templates (such as infoboxes) or with headings and galleries.


Categories

[[Category:Help]]

This will add the page to the list of Working Documents, and automatically place a link at the bottom of the page. This page IS in the Working Documents category, and so at the bottom of this page you can see the link to it.

If you just want to link to a category page, put a colon (:) at the start of the link such as [[:Category:Help]] There's a button for this in source mode.

Templates

{{Ultraman}}

This will show the code for whatever is in page Template:Ultraman.

VisualEditor

The VisualEditor

Wikia editor2

The classic editor

Editing on Fandom is as simple as clicking the "Edit" button on a page. Doing so will take you to an edit page where you can make changes to the page and add new information and media, correct errors, or update the formatting.

Depending on whether you are logged in or not, you may receive a different editing experience:

Help:VisualEditor
Most anonymous and newer users will see the VisualEditor. It's an editing experience based around showing you an accurate visual representation of your changes.
Help:Classic editor
Other users will see the classic editor, including the older visual editing experience and basic source wikitext editing.

Quick tips

  • Once you are in an editor, you can use the available tools to quickly add and remove information, change the formatting, add new images and videos, update the page's layout, and much more! Once you're done making your changes, just click the "Publish" button to update the page.
  • Don't be afraid if you "break" anything. All edits to a page are stored in the page history, and if something does go wrong you can simply revert to an older version.
  • If you want to edit a page without clicking the "Edit" button, you can press E on your keyboard, and the page will automatically load the preferred editor.
  • Editing is not yet possible through the Fandom app or Community Apps.

Choosing an editor

Logged in users can choose their default editor from a dropdown list in their user preferences (found here).

Setting Meaning
VisualEditor Shows the VisualEditor on all communities.
Classic rich-text editor
(where available)
Shows the classic rich-text editor where available.
If not, the source editor is shown.
Source editor Shows the basic source editor on all communities.

Anonymous users will almost always see the VisualEditor by default. In a few specific cases, the VisualEditor may not be available on a particular community.

Additionally, the alternative editors can still be found under the Edit button dropdown - for example, you can still access the classic editor from the dropdown even if the VisualEditor is the default.
