Welcome to the NZ Go Wiki sandbox!
This page exists so that you can practice editing or formatting (see Help:Editing) without changing any serious content. Feel free to try wiki editing out here first.
There is a tutorial on the Central (coordinating) Wikia that will step you through more of the things you can do. Wiki allow for rather complicated formatting. It can look overwhelming when you begin, but don't let it worry you. Just start with the basics... enter some text, and learn the other pieces as you go. Your content contributions are welcome and important. The wiki is a collaborative effort and others can help with formatting and other improvements.
Best wishes!

This page is for any tests.

Welcome to the sandbox!

Anyone can edit this.

Simple editingEdit

To edit a page, click on the "edit" tab, usually near the top of the page. Then, edit the box in the page. Feel free to practise here, on this page. It's here just for you to practise. (But you can use your own User page if you like.)

A blank line indicates a paragraph separation. Create it with just two taps on an Enter key.

You can link to another page by putting the name or title of that page in double square brackets. (There's a one-click version near the left-hand end of the row of bluish buttons above the edit box.) [[Main Page]] becomes Main Page.

Simple formattingEdit

Create headers by putting text in between repeated equal (=) signs. The more =, the lower level the heading is. Two each end is the highest normal level: if you use just one, you get something that's the same size as the page name.

Create a bulleted list by starting each item on a new line with an asterisk (*)

  • it's ok to make editing mistakes
  • you can preview your work before saving it
  • even after saving it, you or someone else can edit it again to make it even better

Formatting for emphasisEdit

Put single quote marks around words or phrases for formatting emphasis.

Two single quotes, like ''italics'' will create italics.

Three single quotes, like '''bold text''' will create bold text.

Five will give you both.

Other stuff...

If you know HTML or CSS formatting commands, they can also be used in this wiki. One useful HTML command is <br /> which creates a line break. (But don't bother with two together: "Enter" twice for that.

If you want to show what a command looks like, rather than actually implementing the command, surround it with the nowiki command.
