To edit a wiki page, just browse to that page and click on "Edit."
On each Edit
page, there are a few text-formatting tips, along with a link to More formatting help
. See this page for instructions on creating headers, lists, tables, etc. While many will find the wiki shorthand easier to use, standard html tags can also be used. This can simplify the process of importing data from static web pages into a wiki page.
It also helps to look at existing pages to see how things are done. When viewing any wiki page, you can click on "View wiki text" to see the source "wiki syntax" of that page.
There is also more documentation, including a tutorial, at:
Remember that Foswiki (the program we are using for our wiki) gives us revision and access control over every page and attachment. Don't hesitate to try something, it can always be undone =)
You can create a new page by using a WikiWord
. A WikiWord is just two or more capitalized words run together. Just type a WikiWord in a page, and the next time you view that page, the WikiWord
will show up in red. Click on the red text to create the new page.
If you want to change the text of the link to the new page, you can use also create the link using wiki syntax:
If you need to use a WikiWord, but you don't want it to link to a new page, put an "!" before the WikiWord (e.g. "!GeV").
You can also create new pages using the "Jump" box in the upper-right corner. Just enter a new page name there, and if the page does not exist, it will ask you to create it.
