ERE: Wiki Syntax

This wiki has its own special syntax to use to control its features. This entry should describe all syntax.


Wiki Links

To create a link, put the keyword you want to link into brackets, like this: [[Jazz Jackrabbit 2]]. This will create a link like: Jazz Jackrabbit 2.

For links that have a description that does not match the entry title that is linked to, use the pipe like this: [[If you click this text, you’ll be taken to the Jazz Jackrabbit 2 entry.|Jazz Jackrabbit 2]]

Special Links

You can add links to places outside the wiki, other sites for example, by using a URL in the target part of a link. For example, a link to Google would look like this: [[We love google|]]. This would turn into: We love google. The red underline of the link designates a link that links to an area outside the wiki.

To link to J2O nodes, you can use the [[This links to the J2O Rules|Node: j2oRules]] syntax. Example: This links to the J2O Rules.


To create headers in an entry, put them between two equal signs, like this: ==Markup and special features==. This will automatically generate a header, and a table of contents at the top of the entry. To use subheaders, type three equal signs: use === instead of ==.

Table of Contents

To place the table of contents of an entry (which shows up if there’s more than one header) on another location than the default one, use the tag.


To have a page automatically redirect the user to another page, use the #REDIRECT command. The syntax is like this: #REDIRECT Name for article to redirect to.

Click here for an example redirect page with the redirect turned off.

Additional Syntax

Signing your name

Using ~ ~ ~ (without spaces), you can sign your name on somewhere. This is useful on discussion pages. Example: ~French

Stub tag

A stub is a wiki entry that has very little information still and should be expanded a lot.

Using , you can assign the Stub attribute to an entry. This attribute puts the entry into the Stubs category.

If only one section is a stub, use to display a notice that the section needs more working on. The notice will look like this (in black):

Disambiguation tag

Using an entry is assigned the disambiguation attribute, which means that the entry’s name is ambiguous and that the name might mean multiple things. A disambiguation page should link to the separate pages for the different definitions a name might have. For example, the name CC might point either to the popular Cracco Clan or to the Christmas Chronicles add-on for Jazz Jackrabbit 2. Thus, CC is a disambiguation page. It’s a good example of a case when it’s needed. The notice will look like this (in black):

Non-wiki Syntax

For all non-wiki-related markup, the general markup system J2O uses, Textile, is used. You can view the help for that at the text formatting page.
