# Use Wiki Syntax

With the help of the extensive wiki syntax and additional buttons in the page's editing mode, it is possible to customise articles. For example, you can set text elements to bold or italic and add headers, links, or formulas.

Certain keyboard characters, such as quotes, apostrophes, equal signs, or asterisks, allow you to format the text of the wiki article. Alternatively, you can also use the usual formatting buttons, which become available when switching to the editing mode of the article.

Formulas are displayed centred by default. If you want the formula to be displayed in the running text, please use the scheme $$<formula>$$.

Alternatively, you can also use the button Insert link to display a list of existing articles. By clicking on the title of an article in this list, a link is automatically embedded in the article.

If you wish to use an alternative link text instead of the page name, enter a pipe (|) after the actual link text and then the text to be displayed, e.g. [[index|Home page]]. Further formatting options for links are given in the overview below.
