  • Don't indent paragraphs
  • Words wrap and fill as needed
  • Use blank lines as separators
  • Four or more minus signs make a horizontal rule
  •  %%'% makes a linebreak (in headings and lists too)


  • asterisk for first level

' asterisk-asterisk for second level, etc. Use for bullet lists, # for numbered lists (mix at will)

  • semicolon-term-colon-definition for definition lists:
term here
definition here, as in the
  • One line for each item
  • Other leading whitespace signals preformatted text, changes font.


  • '====' at the start of a line makes a small heading====
  • '===' at the start of a line makes a medium heading===
  • '==' at the start of a line makes a large heading==


  • Indent with one or more spaces to use a monospace font:
This is in monospace

This is not

Indented Paragraphs

  • semicolon-colon -- works like
this is an indented block of text


  • Use doubled single-quotes (''''') for emphasis (usually italics)
  • Use doubled underscores (''') for strong emphasis (usually ''bold')
  • Mix them at will: 'bold italics'
  • Emphasis can be used multiple times within a line, but cannot cross line boundaries:

this will not work


  • Hyperlinks to other pages within the Wiki are made by placing the page name in square brackets: this is a page link or UsingWikiWords (preferred)
  • Hyperlinks to external pages are done like this: [1]
  • You can name the links by providing a name, a bar (|) and then the hyperlink or pagename: http://phpwiki.sourceforge.net/ - the front page
  • You can suppress linking to old-style references and URIs by preceding the word with a '====', e.g. !NotLinkedAsWikiName, !http://not.linked.to/====
  • You can create footnotes by using [[[1]], [[[2]], [[[3]], ... like this here 1. See footnote for counterpart. (If the [[[ is in the first column, it is a footnote definition rather than a footnote reference [1]].)
  • Also, the old way of linking URL's is still supported: precede URLs with "http:", "ftp:" or "mailto:" to create links automatically as in: http://c2.com/
  • URLs ending with .png, .gif, or .jpg are inlined if in square brackets, by themselves: [2]


  • Simple tables are available. A table row is introduced by a '|' in the first column. It is best described by example:
     ||  '''Name'''               |v '''Cost'''   |v '''Notes'''
     | '''First'''   | '''Last'''
     |> Jeff       |< Dairiki   |^  Cheap     |< Not worth it
     |> Marco      |< Polo      | Cheaper     |< Not available
will generate

|| 'Name' |v 'Cost' |v 'Notes' | 'First' | 'Last' |> Jeff |< Dairiki |^ Cheap |< Not worth it |> Marco |< Polo | Cheaper |< Not available

Note that multiple '|s lead to spanned columns, and 'vs can be used to span rows. A '>' generates a right justified column, '<' a left justified column and '^' a centered column (which is the default.)

HTML Mark-Up Language

  • Don't bother
  • < and > are themselves
  • The & characters will not work
  • If you really must use HTML, your system administrator can enable this feature. Start each line with a bar (|). Note that this feature is disabled by default.

More detail than you want to know

See MagicPhpWikiURLs for gory details on how to write various kind of wiki maintainance links.


1 By using [[[1]] a second time (in the first column) the footnote itself is defined. You may refer to a footnote as many times as you want, but you may only define it once on the page. Note the the [[[1]] in the footnote links back to the first reference, if there are multiple references there will be +'s after the [[[1]] which will link to the other references. (References which come after the footnote definition will not be linked to.)
