Nowiki is a way to format words or phrases while editing an article. The "nowiki" command allows you to show a reader how to type a format on the wiki, without the format occurring.

It is through the use of the "nowiki" command that you can show this to a reader:

  • [[Category:Editing Help]]

If the words "Category:Editing Help" were not enclosed by the nowiki command, instead of showing the reader
how to type the category tag, the reader would be taken to the category.

  • First, type: "<" followed by "nowiki" followed by ">".
  • Then, type the words you wish to not be wikified.
  • Then, type: "<" followed by "/nowiki" followed by ">".
