You can also use source mode to modify the appearance of text to help format, highlight or call out particular areas of interest.

Step-by-StepEdit

Modify text in source mode Edit

  • Once you click the edit button and the Wikia editor opens, click on the source mode tab.
  • Here you will find a toolbar that will give you a couple of similar options you find in visual mode. You can use these buttons to apply bold and italic by highlighting the text and click those button.

  • You can also edit the text directly by using wiki markup:
    • Add   '''   to both sides of the text to make the text bold.
    • Add   ''   to both sides of the text to make the text italic.
    • Add   <u>   to the beginning of the text and   </u>   to the end of the text that you wish to make underline.
    • Add   <strike> or <s>   to the beginning of the text and   </s> or </strike>   to the end of the text that you wish to make strike-through.

Using <span> </span> tagsEdit

With <span> </span> tags you can do all of the above and a bit more.

  • First click the "edit" button which is found next to the title of every page. Or you can click the "Edit" link next to any section heading on a page.
  • An edit window will open.
  • Find the text you wish to modify.
    • Add   <span style="font-weight:bold;">   to beginning of the text and   </span> to the end of the text that you wish to make bold.
      Alternatives of font-weight:bold; are:
      • font-weight:normal; to get   normal.
      • font-weight:lighter; to get   lighter.
      • font-weight:900; to get   900.
    • Add   <span style="font-style:italic;">   to beginning of the text and   </span> to the end of the text that you wish to make italic.
      Alternatives of font-style:italic; are:
      • font-style:normal; to get   normal.
      • font-style:oblique; (very similar to italic, but less supported) to get   oblique.
    • Add   <span style="text-decoration:underline;">   to beginning of the text and   </span> to the end of the text that you wish to make underline.
    • Add   <span style="text-decoration:line-through;">   to beginning of the text and   </span> to the end of the text that you wish to make strike-through.
      Alternatives of text-decoration:underline; and text-decoration:line-through; are:
      • text-decoration:overline; to get   normal.
      • text-decoration:blink; (not supported by all browsers) to get   normal.
