Multiple choice questions

  • Which of the options is the shortcut wiki markup to create a ‘Grandchild’ sub-page linked from the ‘Child’ page?
    • [[/Grandchild/|Grandchild label text]]
      • Correct.

      • Incorrect. This is not a shortcut, but the correct syntax to link to the Grandchild page.
    • [[{{:subpage}}/Grandchild|Grandchild label text]]

      • Correct. This statement is false, because the navigation structure is limited to three (3) hierarchical levels.
    • The course website uses the wiki link ‘pipe’ text (wiki link display text) for the page titles in the published WordPress site.

    • Avoid using long titles as wiki link display text, because they do not display well as menu options.

      • Incorrect. This statement is true.

      • Correct. The hash is used for numbered lists and will not work when generating a snapshot.
    • The first bullet is signified using an asterisk character (‘*’)
      • Incorrect. This statement is true.
