Creating a wiki page
Authorised users create new pages by editing a page they want to link from then create an Internal Link with the desired page title within the brackets. Then save that page and click on the newly created internal link. The uncreated page will be displayed and the user can then create the page, edit it and save it. Please try to be logical in the linking of your pages and their naming - ie. if you want to write about Streptococci, go to Pathology index then find Microbiology page to edit and link from there.
to create the main header for the page, use the H2 button or manually type 5 equal signs either side of your page title text
do the same thing for each section heading but use H3 or type 4 equal signs not 5 - these headings will also appear as shortcuts at top left of the page.
for less important headings, use H4 (===header h4===) or H5 (==header h5==)
link to a wiki page
simply enclose the name of the page to link to between a pair of double square brackets (eg. [[page_name]])
if you want to override the default page title that will be displayed, use [[page_name|your preferred descriptor text]] where the | is the pipe character on the keyboard which is two vertical lines above each other.
a further complication arises is when the page you wish to link to is in another section of the wiki, in which case you need to use colon prefixed directions eg. [[:it:software]]
link to an external web page
as for linking to a wiki page but instead of using the page name, you use the full URL

more Dokuwiki syntax
in addition, to simple <note>this is a note</note>, you can use the note keywords: important, warning and tip.
this allows syntax such as <note warning>Don't forget to check the contraindications!</note>
which will display as:
Don't forget to check the contraindications!
