Seo friendly spaces

it should be noted that google indexes seo_unfriendly_url as seounfriendlyurl while it indexes seo-friendly-url as seo and friendly and url keywords. thus we should prefer - instead of _ for spaces.

Fancy Boxes

TODO: Describe fancy* boxes, and explain the most fool-proof way of using them. Use this format, exactly:

Important

Now you can put lots of funky stuff in here, like html tags, etc, and not have a problem with the parameter getting passed as the first parameter.

Cool!


ebuild documentation

http://www.funtoo.org/Adding_an_Ebuild_to_the_Wiki

i think the first part should have a link to adding the build wiki info. the pages should be linked against each other. & or transclusion at the bottom of this help article. (and a very minor note that the file stuff should be bundled into the fancy notes at the bottom.) =D <3 u guys

Special Characters

To produce pipes:
{{!}}

generates: |

(i think equals needs a similar template?)

Note

That's right = I added it

Note that in general cases you can use the <nowiki> markup that displays inner content as-is, but for a single character that might have lots of occurrences that's quite a pain.

delete template

to flag a page as a candidate for deletion, insert

{{delete}}

at the top of a page.

Should we use the checkbox "This is a minor edit" and when should we use it ? I often forget to set this option when I make what I consider a "minor edit", but what is the purpose? Is it somehow useful? -- Pytony (talk)
