How to use this Wiki

Editing a wiki page can look strange because of the formatting. But it is quite easy to learn the basics quickly. The Edit page has some formatting buttons to help you. The best way to learn is to view existing pages to see how they've been formatted.1) A few tips:

  • to practise editing, use the PlayGround page - you can do anything here
  • see the Syntax page for formatting text
  • use the preview button to check the final version before saving
  • to revert to an earlier version of a page, use the 'Old revisions' button on the top menu bar
  • to create a new line or paragraph, use two backslashes \\
  • try to indicate what has been edited in the 'Edit Summary' box; check the 'Minor changes' box for small edits and no need to complete edit summary
  • to add images, use the 'Media Manager' (top right link)
  • for more elaborate WYSIWYG editing, use the 'FCK Edit' button (when selected, you need to select the Edit page button again) - though the regular editor is much quicker and is generally recommended
1) Only authorized users can edit wiki pages on this site - see Home page
