Welcome to the Duke Nukem Wiki's sandbox!
This page exists so that you can practice editing or formatting (see Editing help) 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 this page" button at the top left of the page (ignoring the side bar). Then edit the text in the exit box. Feel free to practice here on this page. It's here just for you to practice.

A blank line indicates a paragraph separation. That is, you need to press "Return" twice in order to start a new paragraph.

You can link to another page by putting the name or title of that page in double square brackets:

To link to a particular section of a page, to the same thing but also include a hash (#) followed by the name of the heading of the section you want to link to:

To rename a link, place the name of the page (and section, if you want) in the double square brackets as usual, but then follow them with a vertical bar and then the name you want to give the link:

Simple FormattingEdit

Create headers by putting text inbetween repeated equal (=) signs. The more =, the lower level the heading is. For example, the heading Simple Formatting has 2 equals signs, which makes it the highest level heading there is.

Create a bulleted list by starting each item 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

Create a numbered list by starting each item with a hash (#):

  1. For the money
  2. For the show
  3. To get ready
  4. To go!

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.

To create a solid line across the page, like the one just below this paragraph, put 4 hyphens in a row (----).

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.

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