From Wilmott Wiki
This example page is a guide on how to apply a standard format and flow to WilmottWiki articles. This helps create a consistent experience for WilmottWiki readers and contributors. The first paragraph or two should include a definition and should be a general introduction to the topic. The text of the first occurence of the article's name should be made bold. Bold text is created using three apostrophes: '''bold'''.
If you have a photograph or illustration related to the topic, add its markup to the very top of the page (before your first paragraph). The markup is: [[Image:photo.jpg|200px|thumb|Photograph's description]]
You can adjust the "200px" if the photo looks too large or too small on the article.
Throughout the article, wikify the article by adding relevant interwiki links (links to other WilmottWiki articles) to words or phrases that have or deserve their own articles. Using "Exotic options" as an example, this is done by: [[Exotic options]] This then becomes: Exotic options
Here is a new section to the article where you begin giving more in-depth information. The heading is created by two equal signs before and after the section title. Like so: == Headline text == You can also click the "A" button labelled "Level 2 headline" above the edit box which will automatically insert the equal signs for you.
Below is how to create subsections and sub-subsections, though not all articles will warrant them.
Here is a subsection of the above heading. A subsection is created by three equal signs before and after the subsection title. Like so: === Headline text ===
Here is a sub-subsection of the above subsection. A sub-subsection is created by four equal signs before and after the sub-subsection title. Like so: ==== Headline text ====
A new section
Add more sections and subsections as you see fit. When the "meat" of the article is finished, continue on to...
Relevant interwiki links (links to other WilmottWiki articles) are added here. For example, if you are adding an article about a particular quantitative model, you can add links to the article about the authors of the model, the numerical methods, etc. These "See also" links are organized with bullet points, created by asterisks. Like so:
Here list books, academic journals, magazines, trade journals, etc. that you used to gather information on the topic.
Books are generally listed in the format: Author. Book title italicized by using two apostrophes. Publishing company. ISBN number. (Year published)
For journals: Author. "Article title". Journal's name Volume # (issue #), page #s. (Year published)
Newspaper/magazine articles: Author (date printed). "Article title". Newspaper/magazine name, page # article begins on.
Web page articles: Author (copyright date). [http://www.exampleurlonlyanexample.com "Article title"].
Relevant links to other websites are added here. External links should shed additional light on the topic. It's good practice to include the topic's "official website" if there is one. Also a couple major "fan sites" dedicated to the topic may be included, if they have extensive information. External links are organized the same way as "See also" links, with bullet points, but are formatted somewhat differently:
*[http://www.exampleurlonlyanexample.com Topic's official website]
Categorize the page. Add [[Category:ExampleCategory]] to the very bottom of the page. You can pick a category listed at Special:Categories or, if none of the existing categories fit, type in the name of the new category.
