WP-MediaWiki adds a subset of MediaWiki markups to WordPress.
Currently, the following MediaWiki markups are supported.

  • Bold
  • Italic
  • Heading
  • Lists: Besides the list markups come from MediaWiki, I also added a continuation markup such that users can put preformatted text in a list item.
  • Tables
  • External links
  • WikiLinks: the wikilink will link to Wikipedia by default, you can change the wiki site in the admin option page.
  • Table of content
  • Horizontal line
  • Preformatted text
