Editing Tips And Guidelines

This page holds the guidelines for writing articles as well as codesamples for some special functions.
You can also look at the general Editing Syntax. Please read this section carefully since it explains most of the syntax.

Headlines

There can only be one H1 headline on a page, which has to be identical to the page title.
H2 headlines are used for items on pages. H3 and so on for subitems of these items.
Headlines should follow general spelling conventions for headlines (i.e. Everything Capitalised).


Setting Links

Please do always use internal links when referencing to pages within the wiki. Internal links do not have the arrow at the side and can therefore be clearly seen as internal.

 [[namespace:pagename|Name]]

Use namespaces where possible to help keep the WIKI organised.
All pages within the Content Areas should be created in the namespace of the same name; all WIKI centric pages in the sibwiki namespace.
You can create new pages in a namespace by searching for the page using namespace:pagename. If the page does not exist, the WIKI will offer you to create it.


Key Presses

The WIKI software can convert certain code Snippets to key presses.

 <key>C-s</key>

becomes
<key>C-s</key>

A complete documentation of the available key codes is available on the Keycode Website


Amazon Book Integration

It is possible to integrate book information from amazon including the cover of the book and a link to its page on the amazon website.

{{amazon>:1423412001}}

becomes

failed to fetch data: unkown error

The same works with international books by appending the country code:

 {{amazon>de:3934903630}}


Other Plugins

The WIKI features a number of special plugins providing even more functionality.

Boxes

You can use couloured boxes to highlight important parts of your page.
Please use the following colors:

  • Red: For warnings and important things.
  • Blue: For references to either general announcements within the WIKI or to official sources (i.e. product announcements by Sibelius).
  • Green: For references to really great external links.

Syntax und use are described on the Box Plugin Page.

Columns

You can present text in columns applying the syntax described on the Columns Plugin Page.
