Bringing Color to Your Wiki

Yesterday, we released a highly-requested feature – advanced formatting of your wiki text. You can now change the color, font, size or alignment of text on your page.

To use this new feature:
1. Edit your page.
2. Highlight the text you wish to format.
3. Click on the text formatting icon in the toolbar textcolor.gif.
4. Format the text as you wish and click “Apply Style.”

Advanced Text Formatting

We are quite excited about this feature and have gotten “Oohs” and “Ahs” since releasing it last night. Try it out for yourself and let us know what you think.

    Thanks for your feedback. We do have a table tool available. If you edit your page, you will see an icon that looks like a table. Click on it and you can add tables to your page.
