This box: view  talk  edit

This is a practice page. Edit it any way you'd like.

It contains a few key features such as the table of contents, bullets, numbering, and tables you may want to use when constructing pages. The content is a duplicate from our formatting help page, so don't worry about messing things up. Go crazy! Find out what will happen when you change things. Its a good place to get familiar with page formatting.

Alternatively, the sandbox is another place to play around. The major difference being that it does not contain any formatting content, and is therefore perhaps a better place to test code or templates.


Contents

Headings

(The heading on this section is a "level 2" heading) To create a heading, use the HEADING shortcut button above the editing window Headline icon.png, or place two or more equals signs on either side of title. e.g. == My discussion topic == will convert the text between equal signs to a heading-sized font.

NOTE: The above table of contents is created by the Wiki software automatically when 4 or more "headings" are placed in a document. Subheadings are created using increasing numbers of equal signs, which are automatically indented in the table of contents. Also when you label a section of a page with a "heading", the Wiki software places an "edit" link beside that section allowing you to edit it individually.

This is a level 3 heading

A level 3 heading is created by adding three equals signs each side of the heading text.

=== This is a level 3 heading ===

This is a level 4 heading

A level 4 heading is created by adding four equals signs each side of the heading text.

==== This is a level 4 heading ====

NOTE: Do not use single equals signs—this will give a level 1 heading, which is what is used for the title of the page.

Character formatting

Italics and Bold formatting can be created using the shortcut buttons above the editing window Italic icon.pngBold icon.png, or by using the following markup.

Use two single-quote marks around text to be italicised:

''This is italic.''
This is italic.

Use three single-quote marks around text to be bolded:

'''This is bold.'''
This is bold.

Lists

Indentations

Create indentations by placing a colon sign ":" at the beginning of a line. Colons can be added incrementally to create hierarchical lists.

Use this markup:
: Single colon.
:: Two colons.
::: Three colons and so on.

To produce the following:

Single colon.
Two colons.
Three colons and so on.

Numeric lists

Create numbered lists using the Number sign "#"

Use this markup:

# Those creatures better suited for the environment survive
# As a species adapts to the environment it becomes specialized
## create subitem by adding second number sign
## another subitem
### create further subs by continuing to add number signs

To produce this numbered list:

  1. Those creatures better suited for the environment survive
  2. As a species adapts to the environment it becomes specialised
    1. create subitem by adding second number sign
    2. another subitem
      1. create further subs by continuing to add number signs

Bulleted Lists

Create bulleted lists using the Asterisks ( * )

Use this markup:

* Created traits - these are traits created in the beginning
* Mutations - these are new traits typically resulting from deactivating genes.
** create sub-bullet by adding second asterisk
** another subitem
*** create further subs by continuing to add asterisks

To create this bullet list:

  • Created traits - these are traits created in the beginning
  • Mutations - these are new traits typically resulting from deactivating genes.
    • create subitem by adding second asterisk
    • another subitem
      • create further subs by continuing to add asterisks

Creating Frames and Tables

Main Article: Table Help

The easiest method for placing a frame around text is simply to put a space before the text. The space will automatically cause a frame to be placed around text. There are problems associated with this type of frame.

Line breaks must be inserted manually. Table width will stretch offscreen to fit text.
Each new line must contain a space to be place in the same table. Table ends upon first occurrence of no space.
Bullet and number lists cant be created in this kind of table using the asterisk and number sign.
One space was placed before these 3 lines.
*Bullets dont work.
#Numbers dont work.

Grey Frame

This markup:

<blockquote style="background: #F9F9F9; border: 1px solid #AAAAAA; padding: .3em;">

Gen 6:7 ''So the LORD said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth--men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air--for I am grieved that I have made them."'' </blockquote>

Produces this frame:

Gen 6:7 So the LORD said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth--men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air--for I am grieved that I have made them."


Blue Table

This markup:

{| cellspacing="3"
|- valign="top"
|width="60%" bgcolor="#f0f0ff" style="border:1px solid #c6c9ff;padding:1em;padding-top:0.5em;"|
'''Darwinist prediction:'''
New genes are created through duplication and mutation of ancestral genes. *This type of table does support bulleted lists. #It also supports numeric lists.
|}

Produces this table:

Darwinist prediction: New genes are created through duplication and mutation of ancestral genes.

  • This type of table does support bulleted lists.
  1. It also supports numeric lists.
Alternatively - use the "quote" template ( {{quote}} ) to create a colored box that is suitable for containing quotes.

Data Tables

Main Page: Creating Tables

Here is how you produce a table of data. It particularly handy when comparing different categories of data.

This markup:

{| border="1" cellpadding="2"
!width="20"| '''Space'''
!width="20"| '''Time'''
!width="20"| '''Matter'''
|-
| Height
| Past
| Solid
|-
| Width
| Present
| Liquid
|-
| Depth
| Future
| Gas
|}

Produces this table:

Space Time Matter
Height Past Solid
Width Present Liquid
Depth Future Gas
