Fedora Community Blog: How to use Fedora Wiki as your wiki whiteboard

Welcome to the Fedora Wiki, wiki for Fedora Project, a free software Linux distributionThe Fedora Project Wiki is a helpful tool for the Fedora community. It is a public “whiteboard” with information about Fedora, its community, and its contributors. New wiki pages are like a clean whiteboard space for a meeting. The flexibility is useful for collaborative planning or frequent logging of information. The wiki doesn’t offer great support for durable documents, but they are more spontaneous and convenient.

How to write in Fedora Wiki

The Fedora Wiki uses default MediaWiki markup language. MediaWiki is easy to use and made popular by Wikipedia. It is similar but more simple than writing HTML for web pages.

A note on durable documents

Treat wiki pages like whiteboards – if it were wiped clean, it wouldn’t be a loss of critical information. If you are writing something that needs to be durable, consider publishing it in Fedora Documentation. These documents benefit from version control, search engine ranking, and offering valuable content to our community and users. Visit the documentation Pagure project for on-boarding for new document repositories.

Common syntax

Here is a set of common syntax for basic formatting. This lets you write in bold, italics, and underline, add images, and insert links.

Advanced MediaWiki syntax

The following examples add more formatting to your wiki contributions, including tables, lists, and headers.

With the new wiki theme, pay close attention to tables. To render tables with borders, add a class="wikitable" metadata to your table (see below for an example). An issue against the theme is open to make this behavior the default.
