<poem>

I will describe the Going Forth,
how he, the One-with-Vision, went forth,
how he reasoned and chose the Going Forth.

"[[Household life]] is crowded,
a [[realm]] of dust,
while going forth
is the open [[air]]."
[[Seeing]] this, he went forth.

On going forth,
he avoided [[evil deeds]] in [[body]].
[[Abandoning]] [[verbal]] {{Wiki|misconduct}},
he [[purified]] his [[livelihood]].
Then he, the [[Buddha]], went to [[Rajagaha]],
the mountain fortress of the [[Magadhans]],
and wandered for [[alms]],
endowed with all the foremost marks.
[[King Bimbisara]], [[standing]] in his palace, saw him,
and on [[seeing]] him, [[consummate]] in marks,
said: "Look at this one, sirs.
How handsome, stately, [[pure]]!
How [[consummate]] his demeanor!
[[Mindful]], his [[eyes]] downcast,
looking only a plow-length before him,
as one who's not from a lowly [[lineage]]:
Send the {{Wiki|royal}} messengers at once
to see where this [[monk]] will go."
</poem>

Will result formatting like this:

REDIRECT

#REDIRECT[[]]

Used to redirect page to another page.

Example:

We make page Buddha's so not to write all that what is written in article Buddha we redirect Buddha's so if it is clicked it will open article Buddha

Example:

#REDIRECT[[Buddha]]

We just insert this and save the page. We can also add categories to redirection's so they will appear under the category page as well

For that we do

#REDIRECT[[Buddha]]
[[Category:Buddhas]]

So now page Buddha's will appear under category Buddha and when the page is clicked it will open page Buddha

Also we can add terminology categories as well {{PaliTerminology}} {{SanskritTerminology}} {{TibetanTerminology}} {{JapaneseTerminology}} {{ChineseTerms}}{{KoreaTerminology}} {{SanskritLetters}} {{TibetanLetters}} {{ZenTerms}} {{TheravadaTerms}} look more under Terminology Category's Section

For that we do

#REDIRECT[[Buddha]]
[[Category:Buddhas]]
{{PaliTerminology}}

Now page Buddha's appear under Pali terminology category as well.

Only use this to redirecting different versions/names all referring to one article but can be further categorized as well in any of the terminology

#REDIRECT[[:Category:]]

To redirect some page/article into category page

Example:

#REDIRECT[[:Category:Buddhas]]

Will result redirecting the page you insert it into the Buddha category page.

Example:

Page 12th Dalai Lamas is redirected to Category:Dalai Lamas

See section REDIRECT page for further explanation same applies only difference is that it would be redirected to Category page.

#REDIRECT[[Wikipedia:]]

Same as other but redirects to English wikipedia page.

#REDIRECT[[Wikipedia:Wiki page name]]


{{#externalredirect:}}

Used to redirect page to external site

Useage:

{{#externalredirect:http://www.chinabuddhismencyclopedia.com/en}}



{{NewSourceBreak}}

If there is multiple sources where the information is taken then you can use this to separate them

Have a look page Vairotsana where there is 2 sources one from RigpaWiki and another from Wikipedia.

You can click edit to see how its done in article.

{{LTSW|}}

It is used to create anchor points in text what you can use to redirect pages to and also create links to specific place in some page.

Example:

[[Vairotsana]] was born into the [[Pagor]] {{Wiki|clan}}, and was sent to [[India]] by [[Trisong Detsen]] to study with [[Indian]] [[pandita]]s. He also travelled widely 
in [[China]], {{Wiki|Khotan}}, [[Nepal]], {{Wiki|Shangshung}} and elsewhere. 
He was one of the {{LTSW|original seven monks}} [[Seven men to be tested|original seven monks]] [[ordained]] by [[Shantarakshita]].

How it will look (As you can see you cant see the LTSW any more because it remains hidden .


Vairotsana was born into the Pagor clan, and was sent to India by Trisong Detsen to study with Indian panditas. He also travelled widely in China, Khotan, Nepal, Shangshung and elsewhere. He was one of the original seven monks ordained by Shantarakshita.


Now if we want to create a link what would take you to this place in article :

Examples:

  1. [[Help:Edit Page Buttons usage#original seven monks]]
    will show up like this Help:Edit Page Buttons usage#original seven monks (click on it to see how it works)
  2. [[Help:Edit Page Buttons usage#original seven monks|original seven monks]]
    will show up like this original seven monks (click on it to see how it works)
  3. #REDIRECT[[Help:Edit Page Buttons usage#original seven monks]]
    this is used for redirecting
PS: Change "Help:Edit Page Buttons usage" to article name you are working with

<headertabs/>

Used to create sections in page what are separated from each other

See example page Buddhist calendar or Buddha where there is two different sources and they can be changed using buttons above

To create that do this:

Some text above the tab view

= First section header =

= Second section header =

<headertabs/>

because it's below the <headertabs/> tag.
