Modifying an existing page
Log in, then simply click on 'edit' and enter your modifications on any page. More detailed information on editing and formatting is available below (help sources) - even so, Wiki formatting is extremely simple and you can start editing immediately, without reading any manuals.
Creating a new page
There are two basic ways of creating a new page:
- Include a link to a non-existing page on an existing page, like this: [[New page title]]. After saving your changes, this link will show as a 'red link': New page title. Clicking on the red link will automatically create the corresponding new page (disabled in this example). This method of page creation is preferred, as it guarantees that the new page is referred to from an existing page.
- Type the title of the new page in the search box on the left and click 'Search'. If the page is not found, the search results include an option to create a page with that title (shown as a 'red link').
Do not hesitate to include short or incomplete entries. Other users will correct and expand them.
Do not worry about making mistakes or not knowing formats or style requirements. Everything can be corrected or undone if needed; it is impossible to 'break' anything.
Commenting and discussing
Each content page has a corresponding discussion page (click on the 'discussion' tab at the top of the page). If you have doubts, comments, or suggestions for the page, please use the discussion page. By using the discussion page, it is hoped that controversies may be settled or at least clarified before modifying the corresponding main page.
