Review of what you've learned


  • Wiki markup is a simple source code language for Wikipedia.
  • You can view and edit the source code of almost any page on Wikipedia by clicking "Edit source".
  • The Edit toolbar at the top of the page can do some formatting for you.
  • Format ==Headings== by placing text between = signs.
  • Make text '''bold''' or ''italic'' by placing it between ' apostrophes.
  • [[Links]] within Wikipedia are added using [[]] square brackets.
  • Remember to provide an edit summary when you save!
  • You can create new pages using the Article wizard, as long as the topic is notable, has reliable sources, and isn't a conflict of interest.
