How to format wikidot pages using HTML

By wikicwikic

This tutorial is for authors who want to use html to format wiki pages and prefer not to learn wiki formatting code.

The following code is an example of how to use html:

[[code type="HTML"]]
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
A paragraph of text…

  • Replace wiki-name with the name of your wiki
  • Replace page-name with the name of the wiki page to be created

The iframe element is used by the wiki software to embed html code, usually from another URI but also from the URI of the wiki page that includes the html code.

Each wiki page assigns automatically an identification number for verbatim text boxes (shown with dash marks (-) surrounding the verbatim text). Therefore the first verbatim text box would have an identification number '1', the second verbatim text box in the page would have identification number '2' and so on. In the example above, the verbatim text boxes are created by the element 'code', with the attribute 'type="html"'. Other types such as 'php' are also acceptable.

To hide verbatim text boxes use the standard comment syntax for html except that the markup declaration open, close delimiters are [ and ] respectively, i.e. [!-- and --].
