This is a test

Testing the formatting in discussions...
  • This is indented once, using a pointy arrow to the right. How does it look? How about long lines? do they intend to indent nicely? Is this line long enough to have a line break. Lalalala... hm ok, this has to be enough. let's do double indentations now!
But first a new line without arrow.
>This has one arrow.
>>This has two
testuser42 2011-01-09T07:05:29-08:00
Ah, you need a space after the arrow!
>This doesn't work but
  • This should.
    • This two, too
      • Threepeat
        • How four can you go?
          • 5
            • 6
              • 7
                • ate
                  • nine

cool. it adds space on the bottom, too.

now copying from the help page:

heading 2

heading 3

Bulleted lists (use stars at the beginning of a line)
  • list 1
    • list 2
      • list 3

Numbered lists (Hash # signs)
  1. numbered 1
    1. numbered 2
      1. numbered 3

Indenting (pointy > brackets)
Horizontal line ---- (four - dashes)

When you want to display characters that have other meanings in wikitext, you can escape the wikitext formatting by putting double backtick characters on either side of your text. The backtick shares a key with the tilde.
Escaping **escaping** escaping
testuser42 2011-01-09T07:14:30-08:00
  1. number one has "# "
    1. number two "## " (this didn't work above)
      1. three.
testuser42 2011-01-09T07:17:49-08:00
  1. one hm "# "
  2. another one, still "# "
  3. maybe this is working? still "# "
well, who needs numbered lists anyway.

links are also explained in the help.
as is "code" etc.

This is plaintext.
Note that both code tags must be on a line by themselves without leading spaces.
