Linking Within GoldToken
GoldToken uses Wiki Formatting instead of HTML on its pages. Special Wiki Links are in curly brackets "{ }" instead of the square brackets for links to wiki pages, and have special words that trigger them.

The secret to controlling Wiki Formatting is that everything is done through simple typing. Once you get used to how it works, it's really easy.

Player_Names

1. To add a name you need to paste or type your name with one space right after the word Player:
      • Make sure you position it within the 2 curly brackets ~~~> { ... } <~~~ with a space either side of the typing.
      • If the curly brackets touch any of the letters the link won't work, there MUST be a space.
        • For example: {Player:Yourname } - { Player:Yourname} - {Player:Yourname} do not work...
        • Finished it should look like ~~~>{ Player: Chad }
        • Which will give you ~~~> Chad
        • Make sure you spell and capitalize your name exactly.



Game_Numbers

1. To add a game number you need to paste or type your game number, eg. 1234567, right after the word Game#.
      • Make sure you position it within the 2 curly brackets ~~~> { ... } <~~~ with a space either side of the typing.
      • If the curly brackets touch either the word or the numbers the link won't work, there MUST be a space.
        • For example: {Game#1234567 } - { Game#1234567} - {Game#1234567} do not work...
        • Finished it should look like ~~~>{ Game#1234567 }
        • Which will give you ~~~> #1234567
2. Having typed in your number press the preview button.
      • The numbers will turn blue if correct.
      • If you’ve made a mistake - try again.
