This page sets out guidelines for editing and contributing work to POV-Wiki.

It is a work in progress and will be expanded as time allows. However, here are some simple guidelines to begin with:

  • We have the ashighlight extension installed. When placing SDL source code into articles, surround it with <source lang="pov">...</source> in order to have it displayed in highighted form.
  • We have the Cite extension installed. This allows references to be added to articles, which will appear in footnotes. We recommend its use when appropriate.
  • See Help:Mathematical_Symbols for information regarding the TEX markup available, and the TEX Box interactive formula editor.
  • When creating multi-page articles, please consider using sub-pages for subsidiary content.
  • Please keep in mind that export of wiki articles to other formats, particularly print, is desirable and thus try to avoid doing something in your article that may not be useful in another medium than HTML.
