Text Styling

You can make changes to the style or appearance of text. Highlight the text you want to alter and select from the drop down menu. 

(Notice: You can also change style by using the Control key with another key such as a "i" to change text to italics.)

  • Bold - makes the text bold.
  • Italic - makes the text italic.
  • Superscript - turns text into a superscript.
  • Subscript - turns the text into a subscript.
  • Strikethrough - puts a line through the text.
  • Computer code[1] - inserts HTML tags <code> and </code> around text you highlighted, which changes the default setting of the font.
  • Underline - draws a line under text.
  • Language[2] - changes language using ISO[3] coding such as "en" for English.
  • Clear formatting - removes any styling attached to the text other than default.
Lesson #4: Paragraph & Headers

By clicking on the Paragraph tab, you will see the following drop down menu:

  • This menu allows you to change the size of the headers.
  • Highlight the header text you want to change and select the size from the dropped down menu. (Notice you can also change the size by holding down the Control key and then pressing the number that equals the size of the header wanted, such as Ctrl 3.)

Here are the sizes of the headers as shown in the menu:

  • Heading - header which is 2 equal signs (==) in Wikitext coding.
  • Sub-heading 1 - equals (===) in Wikitext coding.
  • Sub-heading 2 - equals (====) in Wikitext coding.
  • Sub-heading 3 - equals (=====) in Wikitext coding.
  • Sub-heading 4 - equals (======) in Wikitext coding.
  • Preformatted - Removes the default font and replaces it with a font that looks like old typewriter font.
  • Block quote - Turns a paragraph or sentence into a block of text that is indented.
  • Page title - equals (=) in Wikitext coding. However, this size header is RESERVED ONLY FOR ARTICLE TITLES! DO NOT use this size of header in your articles. If you were to make a header with one equal sign, it will remove the actual title at the top of the page, leaving a blank space. In addition, the browser will think your header is now the title of the article.

Introduction to Visual Editor

  • Visual Editor was created to allow people who have little or no knowledge of programming to add material to a Wiki site.
  • It resembles editing in a word processing program.
  • However, Visual Editor does have its limitations
  • LIMITATIONS: For example, you can place images but you have little control as to their size and location in an article.
  • With Visual Editor you can... Add a reference or footnote.
  • What can you create in Visual Editor?
A. Paragraphs of information.
B. Tables.
C. Numbered lists.
