Use this template to create a popup window that is displayed when the mouse is over part of the page. This template has two parameters:

  • `mouseover` - This is the text or other content that triggers the popup.
  • `popup` - This should be the content of the popup window. It can be anything, even images or a whole little wiki page, but should not be too large for good usability.

Note that browsers that do not support the CSS will display the popup inline in the page, inside square brackets. []


Use this template to insert a note into a page. The note will be styled to float to the right of other text on the page. This template has one parameter:

  • `text` - the text to display in the note

To add a new shortcut, use the shortcut directive. In the url, "%s" is replaced with the text passed to the named shortcut, after url encoding it, and '%S' is replaced with the raw, non-encoded text. Additionally, %W is replaced with the text encoded just right for Wikipedia. The optional desc parameter controls the description of the link.

Remember that the name you give the shortcut will become a new directive. Avoid using a name that conflicts with an existing directive. These directives also accept a desc parameter that will override the one provided at definition time.

If you come up with a shortcut that you think others might find useful, consider contributing it to the shortcuts page on the ikiwiki wiki, so that future versions of ikiwiki will include your shortcut in the standard underlay.
