Headings and subheadings
Headings and subheadings are an easy way to improve the organization of an article. If you can see two or more distinct topics being discussed, you can break up your article by inserting a heading for each section.
If an article has at least four headings, a table of contents (TOC) will be automatically generated.
To insert a bullet, use an asterisk (*). More asterisks in front of a paragraph means more indentation.

It is often more useful to make the link display something other than the URL, so use one square bracket at each end, with the alternative title after the full URL address, separated by a space (not a pipe). So if you want the link to appear as Google search engine, just type:
Creating a new page
If you (or anyone else) create a link to an article that doesn't exist yet, the link will be coloured red, like this.
