Problem Examples[edit | edit source]

Below are 10 examples of pages with coding issues. Please put the pages in your sandbox and then see if you can find the problem. This is the actual page that was used for these problems.

P.S.You might see some formatting or grammar or spelling problems on this page. That is not what we are to be looking for - just Wikitext coding problems.








Wiki Text Coding ....Look for Errors while patrolling:[edit | edit source]

This is text placed between opening and closing div tags with padding and light blue color attributeswithout the closing tag. .....


The text above should be placed between both opening and closing div tags in order for the text below it to be without a background color.

(Frequently the closing div tag is left out or mis-typed. All kinds of crazy things can happen; but the one problem you often see is the sidebars disappear. You will find them at the very bottom of the page. Obviously you need to find where this missing div tag needs to go.)

Examples without proper Table tags:
