Alternate text

If you would like to use alternate text on a link within the wiki, it is done like this:

Example:

[[Sit & Smoke Station|My favorite ride]]

Produces:
My favorite ride

References

When you want to reference a source of information, it is done by creating a link to an external page, adding the date and name of the source after the link, and putting the whole thing between <ref> and </ref> tags. It is placed within the text of the article.

Example:

<ref>[http://www.sltrib.com/article Article Name] Salt Lake Tribune, 01-01-2015</ref>

This will add a small notation in the article's text and put a the full reference at the bottom of the page.

Further Information

For further details on linking see Mediawiki Help:Links.

Tables

You can create tables that hold information similar to a spreadsheet.

|-
|Blue||Brown||Green
|-
|Yellow||White||Yellow
|}

Tables can be somewhat more complicated than other markup. For full instructions see Mediawiki Help:Tables.

Copying what you see

If you see something on this wiki (or any wiki) that you would like to know the markup for, just look at the source of the page. If you are logged in and can edit pages, click "Edit" at the top of the page. You can read that page's markup and copy what you see. If you are not logged in and can't edit pages, you can still click "View Source" to see the page's markup.
