Page Includes

Pages can be included inside other pages to make larger pages by using the include tag. This can be useful in breaking a large page up into smaller, more manageable pieces, or to create reusable components, like headers and footers, that can be included on multiple pages. The only required attribute of the include tag is the page attribute. Includes can optionally include a section title using the title attribute or can include an edit button, allowing users to edit the included page directly, using the editable attribute.
Basic Include
[Invalid Include: Page not found: PAGENAME]

Include With Section Title
[Invalid Include: Page not found: PAGENAME]

Include With Direct Edit Button
[Invalid Include: Page not found: PAGENAME]

Include With Wrapping DIV

Preventing Wikitext

Sometimes the content of your page will include some of the above wikitext, and Wikispaces will mark up that text. For example, an equation that contains 2 equals signs (a = b = c) will look like a heading, or a footnote (* see details) will be interpreted as an unordered list. To prevent this markup, wikitext can be escaped by surrounding the ambiguous area with double back ticks. The back tick character is on the same key as the ~ tilde character on the keyboard. For example, to prevent a list from being displayed, use:
` ` * this is a footnote, not a list item` `

More Detailed Instructions


An anchor is a way to link one part of a page to another. They are often used at the top of a page so that people can jump directly to a section that is farther down without having to scroll to find it.

Anchors have 2 parts.

Part 1: The anchor point. i.e. The place you are linking to.
1. Go to the part of the page where you want the link to jump to (usually located farther down the page).
2. Type in Type the brackets and the # sign. Replace nameoftheanchor with the actual text you want to be the name of the anchor. In the examples above, we use .

Part 2: The link.
1. At the top of the page (or wherever you want your anchor link list to appear), highlight the text that you want to use as your link.
2. Click on the link button in the toolbar (it looks like a globe). For Page Name, select the name of the page you want to link to. This is most often going to be the page you are currently working on.
3. Click the "Link to anchor?" link, which will then display a box into which you can type the anchor name. So in the example above, you would type the word apples in to the Anchor box, since this is what you put inside the anchor code in Part 1.
