The Basics

You do not need to be an experienced writer in order to add info to this wiki. What is most important is that you only add appropriate and valid information and not just guesswork or opinions.

Editing a page

It's very easy to edit the contents of the wiki. It only takes a few clicks.

  1. Click the "Edit" page tab at the top of the page.
  2. Make changes to the text.
  3. Click the "Save page" button.

That's it!

In general try to write clearly and concisely and make sure you are always aiming to do something which improves the wiki contents. An edit might be to contribute whole paragraphs or pages full of information, or it could be as simple as fixing a typo or spelling mistake.

When you need to use some type of formatting e.g. new headings or bold text, you do this using wiki syntax or the buttons in the Edit Toolbar above. See Help:Formatting for some of the common types of formatting used.

It's a good idea to use the "Show preview" button to see what your change will look like, before you save it.

Starting a new page

It's very easy to link wiki pages using a standard syntax (see Links). If you create a link to an article that doesn't exist yet, the link will be coloured red, like this. Clicking a red link will take you to the edit page for the new article. Simply type your text, click save and the new page will be created.

Once the page has been created, the link will change from red to blue (purple for pages you've visited) indicating that the article now exists.

Usually this is the best way to create a new page, because it means that right from the start, the page will be linked from at least one other place on the wiki (and typically you will want to mesh it into other related pages later).

Deleting a page

This is not possible for normal Users.
