Help on Headlines


Section Headings

You can create headings by starting and ending a line with up to five equal signs. The heading text is between those markers, separated by a single space.

Headings are useful because they help divide a page's content. Headings also show up in the [[TableOfContents]] macro, thus improve readability on longer pages. Headings, when used next to a thumbnailed image, "clear" the text and create a functional break in the text flow.

For more information on the possible markup, see Help on Editing.

 === Level 3 ===
 ==== Level 4 ====
 ===== Level 5 =====


Note that proper section numbering requires you to order sections according to a valid structure, i.e. correctly nested. Our sample doesn't do this, so you get a different numbering scheme than you might expect.

You'll want to use the biggest header, = Big one =, for creating your initial sections then smaller headers for sub-sections, accordingly.

To indent a headline just but a space (or multiple spaces) in front of it:

 == indented ==

== not indented ==

displays as:

not indented

This is useful for organizing headers. The more spaces you put in front of a headline the more it's indented.

Horizontal Rules

You can insert a horizontal rule by placing a series of dashes into the page:

something else.

displays as:


something else.

As long as there's more than 4 dash signs the number of dashes doesn't matter.
