Welcome to the Help Desk!

StitchyStitchy here! Since I am the one most versed in Wikidot's wiki language, I am going to act as the secretary for all your burning questions. Not sure how to link to pages in the wiki? Want to change text size? Make tables? Just ask me by editing this article, (hit the "edit" button at the bottom,) and I will respond with solutions.

So, here's an example of an inquiry.

Example Question: How do you make a simple table?

I don't know how to make a table correctly! Does anyone want to teach me? ~ Stitchy

This is what the question looks like in code:

++ Example Question: How do you make a simple table?

See the two ++? That creates what we call a header. Why do this? Well, this will add it to the table of contents at the top of the page, and it someone has the same question, they can just refer to the contents! Headers act as sections in articles as well, which make organizing information in an article very easy. The more + you add, the deeper the header is indented. Anyway, this is what it will look like when I (or whoever,) answers!

That's a great question, Stitchy! Tables are awesome, and pretty easy to use. Here is a super basic table, and the code.

Basic 2 Cell Table

head
info
|| head ||
|| info ||

That will generate a table with only two cells. The || can be considered the "edges" of the table. For a cell to be under a cell, simply type up one right below it in the code.

Basic 4 Cell Table

head head2
info info 2
|| head || head2 ||
|| info || info 2 ||

Here's another with four cells. It's pretty straightforward, yeah?

Basic Table with Rowspan

Now, for something a little more advanced.

head
info info 2
|||| head ||
|| info || info 2 ||

So, you want a cell to span two cells? Just add on || for every cell you want the spanning cell to cover. In this case, it spans two cells, and thus requires ||||.
