This page is a guide on basic to intermediate wikicode, for use in editing and cleaning up pages.

Simple Editing

To edit a page, click on the "edit" tab, usually near the top of the page. Then, edit the box in the page. Feel free to practice here, on this page. It's here just for you to practice.

A blank line indicates a paragraph separation.

You can link to another page by putting the name or title of that page in double square brackets.   [ Main Page] becomes Main Page.

Simple Formatting

Create headers by putting text inbetween repeated equal (=) signs. The more =, the lower level the heading is.

Create a bulleted list by starting each item with an asterisk (*). You can add more asterisks to indent the bullets further.

  • It's ok to make editing mistakes
    • You can preview your work before saving it
      • Even after saving it, you or someone else can edit it again to make it even better

You can also use colons (:) to indent text.


You can also create text to mouseover normal text. <span class="explain" title="Mouseover text goes here">Normal text</span><noinclude> becomes Normal text.

Formatting for Emphasis

Put single quote marks around words or phrases for formatting emphasis.

Two single quotes, like ''italic text'' will create italic text.

Three single quotes, like '''bold text''' will create bold text.

HTML can be used to create colored text, like <span style="color:#FFD700">Gold text</span>. Gold text

HTML can be used to create a colored text background, like <span style="background:#FF0000">Red background</span>. Red background

Article organization

Use each templates for articles relating to DLCs at the top. As a reminder: do not add all of them to each articles unless their information refer to different games.


DLC = Afterbirth

DLC-plus = Afterbirth †

Heart Addition

From each monster and boss articles, insert the heart icon to the "damage =" section from the infoboxes depending on the enemies' damage count:

Half Heart - Half heart.
Heart - Full heart.


Linking to in-wiki articles. [[Isaac]] becomes Isaac.

Linking to in-wiki articles with alternate link text. [[Cain|The Lucky One]] becomes The Lucky One.

Linking to in-wiki articles with the "s" at the end. [[Fly|Flies]] becomes Flies.

Adding external links. [] becomes

Categorize a page. [[:Category:Pages needing improvement]] becomes Category:Pages needing improvement.

Add an image. [[File:IsaacHD.png]] becomes IsaacHD

Resize an image. [[File:IsaacHD.png|70px]] becomes IsaacHD

Position an image. [[File:IsaacHD.png|right]] becomes

Other Stuff

If you know HTML or CSS formatting commands, they can also be used in this wiki. One useful HTML command is <br> which creates a line break.

If you want to show what a command looks like, rather than actually implementing the command, surround it with the < nowiki > < /nowiki > (without spaces) commands.
