How to edit a page

Once you have joined the site you will be able to edit pages. Click on the edit button in the menu at the bottom of the page. There is also an edit button top right of each page also. This will open the editor.

Depending upon the page you are editing you will see text and some symbols. For instance a link to another page in the wiki will look something like this:

 [[[the name of the wiki page | the text that will appear in blue in the text]]]

To create a link to a new page, use syntax:

 [[[new page name]]] | text to display]]]

Follow the link to create a new page and instantly edit it! For an external link the syntax is:

 [link text]

If you put a * in front of the link it will open in a new tab i.e.

 [*link text]

When you are editing a page, no one else can edit it. The page is locked. The wiki will give you 900 seconds from the time of your last key stroke on the page before it releases the lock.

It is therefore important to save your work regularly if you are editing a page

Creating and editing pages is easy. The main thing to remember:

It's ok not to know. It's not ok not to ask.
