checkboxes

There is no built in functionality for this, but see Template:Checkbox for how we implemented it ourselves.

{{Checkbox|wording for checkbox}}

turns into

wording for checkbox

Headings

 
== my heading==
=== a subheading of my heading ===

turns into

bolding and italicizing

 '''bold''', ''italic'' and '''''bold and italic''''' text 

turns into bold, italic and bold and italic text

Collapsibles

Collapsibles are useful when you may need lots of info the first time you do something, but only a hint in the future. It makes for a tidy, short document without losing the detail. There is no built in functionality for this, but see Template:Collapsable for how we implemented it ourselves.

{{Collapsable 
| always=always visible 
| full=visible when expanded}}

turns into

always visible

visible when expanded

signature

 ~~~~ 

will turn into your signature and a date once saved. Unlike the other markup elements, if you edit the text it doesn't turn back to the markup, the wiki actually changes it.
