Following the revision of the Wikipedia:Service awards, I'm currently qualified for Senior Editor III. For Master Editor, I match the time requirement (and will match the Master Editor II time requirement in May of 2012) but am considerably short of the required 42k edit count.

Math formulae and TeX markup

To force a math formula to full size, add \,\! (backslash comma backslash exclamation):

<math>a(1+e^2/2)</math> is

<math>a(1+e^2/2)\,\!</math> is

See Wikipedia:TeX markup for more.

Table syntax

  • For table syntax, see Help:Table#Guide to the pipe syntax
  • {{prettytable}} and {{prettytable-center}}
  • More flexibly, use:
    • {| class="wikitable" style="text-align:center" align="right"
      • where text-align can be left, center, justify, or right (left is default)
      • and align can be left or right (center will not work)
    • in theory you could use instead {| class="wikitable" style="text-align:center;float:left" but this allegedly breaks rendering at large font sizes.
      • float would then be left or right (center still does not work)
  • Centered tables can be achieved, but they will not float (no text will appear to either side):
    • {| class="wikitable" style="text-align:center;margin: 1em auto 1em auto"

In the examples below, the wiki code consists of the right-floating table, the left-floating table, the Lorem ipsum text, a centered table, and more Lorem ipsum.

Cells centered, table right
Lorem ipsum dolor
sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit,
sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
Cells right-aligned, table left
Ut enim ad
minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco
laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

Template:Lorem ipsum

Cells left-aligned, table centered
Duis aute irure
dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit
esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.

Template:Lorem ipsum

Image borders

Two examples showing ways to put a border around an image, using the Wikimedia Commons current Belarus flag image (which is borderless):

<div style="background-color: #000000; padding: 1px; float: left">
[[Image:Flag_of_Belarus.png|240px|Flag of Belarus]]
Flag of Belarus

| style="background-color: #FFFFFF; padding: 0px; border: solid 1px #888888"|[[Image:Flag_of_Belarus.png|240px|Flag of Belarus]]
Flag of Belarus

Note that wikitables use a padding of 1 px by default.


Templates can contain interwiki links; this normally means all pages using the template will have the interwiki, which is usually a bad thing. To link just the templates across wikis, use:

[[de:Vorlage:Korrekter Titel]]
[[es:Plantilla:Título erróneo]]
[[fr:Modèle:titre incorrect]]

  • [[:fr:Cible française|Article in French]] to link to another language Wikipedia entry.
  • [[wikt:Target|Target]] to link to English Wiktionary entry.
  • [[wikt:fr:Cible|Cible]]to link to another language Wiktionary entry.
  • [[m:Target|Target]] to link to Wikimedia entry.
  • [[mw:Target|Target]] to link to MediaWiki entry.
  • [[q:Target|Target]] to link to the English Wikiquote
  • [[q:fr:Cible|Cible]] to link to another language Wikiquote
  • For more, see m:Help:Interwiki linking.


  • {{Coor title dms|56|6|31.14|N|74|17|49.29|W|type:landmark_region:CA}}
  • <span style="font-variant:small-caps">small caps</span> (see also bsm and esm templates)
  • {{ed|<template or page name>|}}
  • {{stub}}
  • #redirect [[correct page]]
  • [http://etc caption text]
  • <font id="name_of_anchor_without_spaces">anchor 1.</font>
    • then: [[page title#name_of_anchor_without_spaces]]

When sections are defined (using ==), you can jump directly without need of an anchor, like this: [[page title#section title]]. See also Help:Section#Section_linking

[[Image:4 Vesta (HST).png|thumb|right|Caption]] (for the syntax, see Wikipedia:Extended image syntax)


Experimentally, we could have two templates:

  • Template:Reflink
    • [[{{PAGENAME}}#{{{1}}}|{{{2}}}]]
  • Template:Reftarget
    • <font id="{{{1}}}"></font>

Then one would mark the targets (in the References section, say) with {{reftarget|<label>}} and insert cross-references to those targets elsewhere as {{reflink|<label>|<text to link>}}. The cross-references would appear as links within the same page ('tween-page linking is already abundantly covered by the usual linking means, obviously).

Note that this does not work within namespaces (e.g. User: pages); in those cases, Template:reflink needs to be modified to read instead [[{{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}}#{{{1}}}|{{{2}}}]]. Such within-namespaces templates are unlikely to be needed, so at worst a secondary template could be created (e.g. "Template:reflink_ns").

Rooting through the Template: pages, I see {{Biohead}} and {{Bioxref}} follow a similar pattern. And I finally found {{ref}}, {{ref_label}}, {{note}} and {{note_label}}. They _label versions allow multiple links to a single note, but force the editor to pick the labels, which spoils the autonumbering purpose. Some mentions of AUTOINCREMENT which may need looking into. Very roughly, {{ref}} and {{note}} create mutual anchors that link to each other; {{ref}} uses the http linking mechanism to have the refs auto-numbered; {{note}} uses wikilinking to use a default character (^) or user-specified label. With a little tweaking, this is what I get:

  • Template:Reflink
    • <span class="reference"><sup id="ref_{{{1}}}{{{2|}}}" class="plainlinksneverexpand">[{{fullurl:{{FULLPAGENAME}}}}#endnote_{{{1}}}{{{2|}}} {{{3|}}}]</sup></span>
  • Template:Reftarget
    • <cite id="endnote_{{{1}}}{{{2|}}}" style="font-style: normal;">[[#ref_{{{1}}}{{{2|}}}|'''<sup>{{{3|^}}}</sup>''']]</cite> 

{{Reflink}} labels itself as "ref_" with required 1Template:Su parameter label, optional 2Template:Su parameter as suffixes, and links to "note_" identically suffixed; the link is auto-numbered by default but accepts an optional 3Template:Su parameter to replace that.

{{Reftarget}} does the same (labels itself "note_", suffixed) but displays a wikilink to "ref_", suffixed, using "^" for its default appearance, or optional 3Template:Su parameter instead.

Better names for the templates may be {{Reflnk}} and {{Reftgt}}.

What is needed is some wiki-supplied way to obtain the "link number" by designating the link's anchor (e.g., given an anchor "ref_" suffixed, obtain the anchored link's number. Or maybe the enclosing span's "rendered contents". Sounds like something HTML/Wiki just can't do, but you never know...
