== How Do I Add Material ==
 
 
 
Click on the edit button at the top left. Next, simply type in the material that you wish to add under the appropriate heading. Use a paragraph break (enter button) to separate the lines. Check your addition to the page or editing by clicking on the preview button at the bottom. Next check your spelling. Finally, click the save changes button. It's that simple!
 
 
 
== Wiki doc Syntax ==
 
 
 
=== Headings ===
 
 
 
The headings have already been created for you on this page. Preserve them unless they are irrelevent to the disease state or topic
 
 
 
Use the headings syntax below to preserve the hierarchical nature of the page rather than simply adding text in '''bold'''. You can modify headings or add to them as follows:
 
 
 
The overall heading of the entire page is achieved by surround the word with with a single equal sign (=) to indicate that it is Subheading 1 or the Title of the page.
 
 
 
The second subheading is achieved with a space and two equal signs surrounding the word. A note of caution, you must put a space (hit the space bar once) around each side of the word!: == Subheading 2 ==
 
 
 
The third subheading is achieved with a space and three equal signs surrounding the word: === Subheading 3 ===
 
 
 
The same method is used for the fourth and fifth subheadings.
 
 
 
=== Bolding ===
 
 
 
Place 3 single quotes like these ' ' ' on each side of a word to make it '''bold''' (don't put spaces between the quotes!)
 
 
 
=== Italicizing ===
 
 
 
Place 2 single quotes like these ' ' on each side of a word to make it ''italic'' (don't put spaces between the quotes!)
 
 
 
=== Lists and Bullets ===
 
 
 
To create numbered list start a new line with a * for a bullet, # for a numbered list, or use the : symbol to insert a tab. e.g,
 
* bullet
 
# numbered list
 
 
 
=== Links ===
 
To make a link, use the button at the top of the edit window; or use [[double brackets]]
 
You can insert a [[Wiki Word]], a [[url]], or use [[url label]].
