Making External links[edit]

Use [http://website.com text] to make links. Example: Google search engine. Use class="plainlinks" to suppress the little external links symbol that appears to the right of the link. Example: <span class="plainlinks">[http://www.google.com Google search engine]</span> gives: Google search engine

Wikitable syntax[edit]

{|class="wikitable"
|-
! Header 1 !! Header 2 !! Header 3
|-
| A1 || B1 || C1
|-
| A2 || B2 || C2
|}

gives:

Header 1 Header 2 Header 3
A1 B1 C1
A2 B2 C2

Using tables to align colums

::{| width="450"
| width="50%" | HCO<sub>3</sub><sup>–</sup> ↔ H<sup>+</sup> + CO<sub>3</sub><sup>2–</sup>   
| ''K<sub>a2</sub>'' = 5.61×10<sup>–11</sup> at 25 °C
|-
| another chemical equation
| ''K'' = some other value
|}

gives:

HCO3 ↔ H+ + CO32–    Ka2 = 5.61×10–11 at 25 °C
another chemical equation K = some other value

Categories[edit]

Put categories at the end of the source text (but before language links) in the form:

[[Category:<name of category>|<variant of article name that category should sort by>]]

Example for category on hypothetical biographical article for Joe Blow; putting him into the category of Schlemiels:

[[Category:Schlemiels|Blow, Joe]]

Useful category pages[edit]

Category:Mathematics_user_templates || Category:Wikipedian engineers || Category:Profession user templates || Category:Wikipedians interested in chemistry || Category:WikiProject user templates || Category:US state of residence user templates

Use of the leading colon in links[edit]

Within the linking brackets ( [[ ]] ), using a colon as the first character will provide the link without doing any special namespace function. For example, [[:Category:Schlemiels]] will provide a link to the Category:Schlemiels page without placing the page on which the link occurs into that category. [[:Image:PhotoOfASchlemiel.jpg]] will provide a link to the specified image page without placing the actual image on the page where the link occurs.

References[edit]

Multi 1:<ref name="refname"> The ref itself </ref>
Multi 2:<ref name="refname"/>

Single:<ref> The ref itself </ref>

Where they go:<references/>

Important note: the <ref> tag cannot be used inside a template.

Miscellaneous templates[edit]

My own template for contributions link[edit]

Use User:Karlhahn/userContribs template for making link to a user's contributions. Example: {{User:Karlhahn/userContribs|Karlhahn|my contributions}} gives:my contributions. This template is now also in main template namespace at template:userContribs. Usage: {{userContribs|<userID or IP>|[optional text]}}

Commons and Wiktionary[edit]

Use {{Commons|<topic name>}} and {{wiktionary|<topic name>}} to create pointer-boxes for Wiki commons and Wiktionary respectively.

Citation needed flag[edit]

Use {{fact|date=<date>}} to flag unsupported statements in articles.

User boxes[edit]

Master user box template is at template:userbox. See template talk:userbox for instructions on its use. See Category:userbox templates for specific user boxes.

User page deletions[edit]

Use {{db-owner}} tag at the top of a user page to mark the user page for deletion.

Unicode Symbols[edit]

See Miscellaneous_Symbols for how to do special symbols that won't render in IE 6 (using {{Unicode|<glyph>}}). Also see this table of unicode fonts for a wide variety of symbol codes and more about unicode here.

User warning templates[edit]

See user warning templates. Useful: {{Uw-test1}} | {{Uw-test2}} | {{Uw-test3}} | {{Uw-test4}} | {{bv}} | {{Uw-vandalism1}} | {{Uw-vandalism2}} | {{Uw-vandalism3}} | {{Uw-vandalism4}} | {{Uw-vandalism4im}}. Always use "subst:". First arg is name of page that was vandalized. I've also got my own template at user:Karlhahn/nonadminWarn to be posted as last measure.

See user talk header templates for various user talk IP classification templates.

To flag disruptive user for blocking[edit]

Use {{IPvandal|<IP address>}} on reporting page to flag anonymous vandal, use {{vandal|<userID>}} to report a user account. See block log for who's been blocked recently, by whom, and why.
