LESSON STRUCTURE

Lessons2.png
  • This is a set of short lessons to teach you the fundamentals of Wikitext. Wikitext is the computer language of FamilySearch Wiki as well as all other Wikis.
  • The lessons are designed to help you learn the language in small easy-to-digest bites.
  • The exercise and/or questions at the end of each lesson are designed to help you learn how to apply the principles taught in the lessons. Please do not pass them up.
  • The lessons will help you to assimilate the knowledge necessary for you to edit and/or add content to FamilySearch Wiki.
  • The left sidebar will give you some idea of the items we will cover in these Wikitext lessons.

WHAT IS WIKITEXT?

  • Wikitext is the underlying language of all Wikis, whether it be FamilySearch Wiki, Wikipedia or Wikimedia.
  • However Wikitext has very limited capabilities.
  • Basically, all it can do is put black letters on a white background. It is very limited in what it can do to make a page interesting to look at. For that we need CSS Cascading Style Sheets.

CSS - CASCADING STYLE SHEETS

  • These are series of codes which can add a little character to a page such as borders and background colors. CSS basically controls how a page will look to our patrons.

HTML - LANGUAGE OF THE INTERNET

HTML.jpg
  • All internet sites including FamilySearch Wiki are based on the programming language called HTML, which stands for Hyper Text Markup Language. There is a separate course for HTML programming.
  • Wikitext is actually a simplified version of HTML.
  • HTML will give you more capabilities than Wikitext.
