Editing pages

This is a brief introduction on how to use the syntax of this CMS.

Links to pages
Enclose the name of the page you want to link to in double brackets, like in [[Lab Total]]. Blanks in page names that consist of multiple words are automatically converted into underscores (_), but can and should be entered as blanks for the sake of readability and convenience.
Links to external resources
Just include the URL of an internet resource in your text to create a link to it, like http://www.atlas-games.com/ .
Alternate text in links
Use the vertical bar (AKA pipe symbol) to provide alternate text that is displayed instead of the linked page name, like in [[Order of Hermes|The Order]]. This also works for external resources, like with [[http://www.atlas-games.com/|Atlas Games]].
Lines and paragraphs
Unlike with most text processors, a new paragraph is introduced by two line feeds (carriage return key) instead of just one. A single line feed evokes a line break, which is not the same as a new paragraph. Example:
First paragraph.

Second paragraph.

Third paragraph.
Something that belongs to this paragraph, but starts in a new line.
Text blocks
Like paragraphs, everything separated by two line feeds introduces a new text block, an environmental context. There are no double line feeds necessary within a block. In fact, this would break the current context and start a new one, be it a paragraph, a bullet list, or a table.
Lists and enumerations
Unsorted bullet lists start with an asterisk (*) at the beginning of a line. Ordered lists start with a plus sign at the beginning of a line.
* [[Bonisagus]]
* [[Tremere]]

+ Open the device.
+ Instill the magical effect.
Descriptions and definitions
Definitions of terms start with a colon at the beginning of a line, followed by the definition term and another colon. After the second colon follows the descriptive text that reaches up to the end of the line.
: Ignem : Deals with light, flame, fire, and heat.
: Aquam : Covers waters and liquids.
Headers help to structure long text by introducing sections and subsections. Headers start with a number of equal signs equal to the level of the section.
= Section
== Subsection
Some text.

== Subsection #2
More text.
