Introduction

Occasionally, you will not be able to do what you need to do in Simple mode alone. Some WikiWidgets, such as WikiWidgets customized for a particular installation, can only be edited in Advanced mode using wikitext.

What's with the funny punctuation?

Socialtext uses special formatting in the backend to describe pages. As long as you use Simple mode, you don't need to know about this. Even in Advanced mode, you can use the toolbar for most basic formatting.

You can learn most of the basic formatting from the Edit tips, which is available just above the toolbar.

For those who need more, you can use the most advanced formatting.
