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):

{{{
{ { {#!media
MedaiWiki syntax markup here
} } }
}}}
This wiki used to have the [[http://www.merten-home.de/FreeSoftware/media4moin/|media4moin]] parser installed. This was an experiment to allow users to write pages in this wiki using the same markup syntax as [[http://mediawiki.org/|MediaWiki]], which has become very popular. Unfortunately the plug-in has not been maintained in some time and we can't recommend its use at this point.
