======Tips from fellow editors====== =====Examples===== ====Example 1==== An example of wiki code improvement: ^ How it looked before... ^ How it looks after... ^ | {{:practice:codebefor.png?nolink |}} | {{ :practice:codeafter.png?nolink |}} | ^ Code before... ^ Code after... ^ | <code>''Code Text' '</code> | <code>''Code Text''</code> | | <code>//1. Focal length</code> | <code> - Focal length</code> | | <code>^1/d_o + ^1/d_i = ^1/f</code> | <code> * $\frac{1}{d_o} + \frac{1}{d_i} = \frac{1}{f}$</code> | | <code>f=[^1/5m+^1/.08m]^-1=7.8 cm</code> | <code> * $f= \left[\frac{1}{5\,{\text m}} + \frac{1}{0.08\,{\text m}}\right]^{-1}$ = 7.8 cm</code> | | <code>//2. Image Size</code> | <code> - Image Size</code> | | <code>h_i = h_o(^-d_i/d_o ) 1.7m(^-.08m/-5m ) = 27.2mm</code> | <code> * $h_i = h_o\left(\frac{-d_i}{d_o}\right)$ $=1.7\,{\text m} \left(\frac{-0.08\,{\text m}}{-5\,{\text m}}\right)$ = 27.2 mm</code> | | <code>//3. A positive number = an upright orientation</code> | <code> - A **positive** number means an **upright** orientation</code> | ====Tips==== //These refer to the Example 1 above// - Symbols like two quotes ''%%''...''%%'', two dashes ''%%//...//%%'' or two stars ''%%**...**%%'' come in pairs and belong together, don't break them apart across new lines - To have a list 1. ... 2. .... 3.... , have the wiki do it automatically by starting each line with two spaces and a dash:<code> - Focal length</code> - To have nested bullet lists, start the next line with 4 spaces and a star:<code> * "my nested line"</code> - Put math formulas in-between two %%$%% signs, like this ((so the wiki knows it's a formula... keep it on one line)): <code>$a=b+c$</code> - If there is a long formula, break it up into smaller pieces like this ((to improve viewing on smartphones)): <code>$a=b+c$ $=e+d$</code> - In math formulas use the ''\frac{}{}'' notation for fractions: a/b should be <code>$.... \frac{a}{b}.... $</code> - To make the brackets in formulas automatically larger depending on what is inside of them, use ''%%\%%left'' and ''%%\%%right'': <code>$...\left[ \frac{a}{b} \right]...$</code> * Both %%\%%left and %%\%%right commands should be in the same formula, can't break them into different smaller pieces. - When using the exponent in a formula of more than one character (something to the -1 degree), use ''%%{}%%'' around the exponent: <code>$..a^{-1}...$</code> - To have units not be italicized in a formula, use ''{\text }'' for one character, and ''{\text{}}'' for multi-character unit: <code>$2\,{\text m}$ or $2\,{\text{mm}}$</code> * To add a little space between the number and a unit in a formula, use ''\,'' * To add more space, use ''\;'' * To reduce the existing space, use ''\!''
