Alternatively you can embed a !MediaWiki section in a normal wiki syntax page by starting with a three open curly braces and "{{{#!media}}}" on a line by itself and ending with thre close curly braces on a line by itself, like this (without the added spaces between curly braces):

MedaiWiki syntax markup here
} } }

This wiki has the [http://www.merten-home.de/FreeSoftware/media4moin/ media4moin] parser installed. This allows you to write pages in this wiki using the same markup syntax as [http://mediawiki.org/ MediaWiki]. It doesn't implement every feature of the MedaiWiki syntax, but it implements a useful subset.

To use this feature, just make the first line of your page:

#format media

In contrast, many pages in this wiki start with a different format specifier to use the default MoinMoin markup:

#format wiki

Alternatively you can embed a MediaWiki section in a normal wiki syntax page by starting with a three open curly braces and "#!media" on a line by itself and ending with thre close curly braces on a line by itself, like this (without the added spaces between curly braces):

MedaiWiki syntax markup here
} } }
