Inline code can by represented with <code></code>
Code blocks should be like:

<syntaxhighlight lang="cpp">
// ... my code here


Math is written in standard latex syntax inside of <math></math>.
I use a modified version of SimpleMathJax:

  • Beware: Do not use ||, use \Vert instead.
  • The attribute display can be used to control the rendering style. See Mediawikiwiki: Extension:Math/Displaystyle.
    • display="inline" renders inline math inline.
    • display="block" renders display math which separate and centered.
    • Omitting display will render display math inline.


See Mediawiki: Help:Images.

Line Breaks

Line breaks are usually done with:

  • <br> or <br /> for new lines
  • Two new lines for paragraph breaks

Download my extension Mediawikiwiki: Extension:LineBreaks to use two spaces and a new line as a line break.


Referenced are defined using the <ref> tag inline.
I'm actually pretty opposed to formatting all references inline with the wikitext. They should be centralized somewhere else such as in a references section. Instead you can use Wikipedia: Help:Footnotes#List-defined_references.

<ref name="name1">Content</ref>
<ref name="name2">Content</ref>
<ref name="name...n">Content</ref>
