This help page references the classic editor. Note that the VisualEditor may behave differently.

A page can be formatted in a number of different ways, using headers, lists, and indenting. All of the following options are available in the wiki editor.

Step by stepEdit

Paragraph format

The editor's format menu


  • It is good to break up long articles into sections to help the reader stay oriented. This can be done using headings.
  • To create a header, highlight the text you wish to modify, and click on the Format button button. You will see the dropdown menu shown on the right. From the list you can choose:
Format option What it will look like
Normal text Text in a regular paragraph format
Heading 2

is the highest level of paragraph formatting. This is meant for major section headings.

Heading 3

is a sub-header and can be used as a sub-section heading

Heading 4

is a smaller sub-header

Heading 5
is the smallest sub-header option
Code / preformatted Technical text that should be displayed in a fixed-width font

Lists Edit

If you would like to create a list, you can use either use bullets or numbers with Bullet&number button the button on the toolbar:

  • Numbers: Click on the numbers button Numbers, and a 1. will appear. Add text after. When you hit enter, the subsequent number will appear. Hit enter twice to exit the number format. A numbered list will look like this:
  1. First item
  2. Second item
  3. Third item
  • Bullets: Click on the bullets button Bullets, and a blue bullet will appear. Hit enter twice to exit the bullet format. A bullet list will look like this:
  • First item
  • Second item
  • Third item

Indenting and aligning Edit

  • In the classic editor, you can align text to the left, right, or center, using the Justify button buttons.
