Here you get an overview of the supported formatting rules in mobiki. If you want to see how it is done, just Edit this page.


Well, this is one. There is nothing more to say. Just start a single line with an exclamation mark:

!This is a section header

Font faces

You can mark text as

'''bold''', ''italics'' and '''''both'''''

Lists - normal and numbered

You will get a list, if you start a new line with a dash or star for a normal list ...

- First
- Second
- Third
* Forth
* 5th

... or any single number followed by a dot, like "0." for example.
0. First
0. Second
0. Third

Code and preformatted Text

Code and other raw text can be integrated like this: Before and after the text simply write a line with only three or more consecutive underscores, like this: ___. No other characters on these enclosing lines!


Internal links sometimes called wiki page names

Links to other wiki pages are done using square brackets.

[Link to a mobiki page]

Link to a mobiki page

You always start with a link pointing to the void. If a page does not exist, it can be created the first time you click on the link. You have to be logged in for that. If you want to link to a mobiki page, but want an alternative link desciption to be show, do it this way:

[Your text|Link to a mobiki page] is a link to a page

Your text is a link to a page

Links to other external websites

External links and eMail-addresses are recognized automagically and you can also hide a link behind a specified own text using square bracket, your text, pipe, the URL and a closing square bracket. They are opened in a new browser tab:
[Your text|]


Local images need to be uploaded to the mobiki images folder via ftp or scp before they can be used with mobiki. After that you simply make use of a special image url, subfolders are allowed:


Image links to external sites work automagically as well, just include the URL of the image you want. (This is normally not good style using images from somewhere out in the web!)

Images are with the standard template always stretched to maximum vertical width:



Hashtags are a great thing. Clicking on one you will see a list of all pages containing the same hashtag. For better readabilty the # itself is not shown by default:

Well, #Snowden did tell us all, but for Angela Merkel this is all #Neuland

Well, Snowden did tell us all, but for Angela Merkel this is all Neuland

Horizontal lines

Well, I don't know, if they are really useful, but here they are, use three dashes to get a horizontal line:


List of recently changed pages

This e.g. could be placed on the first page to use mobiki as a blog and show the first n new articles, where n is a number greater 0:
