Adding a new page

To add a new page, do this:

  1. Log in. If you don't have username/password yet, just click the login button, and then click “register”. The register link is located right below the log in box.
  2. Edit the page that should link to your page. Do this by pressing the “Edit this page” on the top/bottom or press an “edit” button on the right side of the page to edit a particular section of the page rather than all of it.
  3. Go the the precise location in the text where you want to add a link to your new page. Click the button that looks like a chain (not the one with the earth behind). Type [[xxx]] where xxx is the name of the page you want to create. This will create what is called an internal link.
  4. Save Page.
  5. Click on this newly created (and currently broken) internal link and you will be asked to create the new “missing” page…
  6. Click “Edit this page” in order to create a new one.
  7. Type text or cut/paste into this edit window. Make sure that you start each new page with a heading (select the text to be used as heading, and press the toolbar button with a blue “H” on it). Use the <code> and </code> tags before and after code segments.
  8. If you want to upload additional files like binary includes required to assemble, or pictures or screenshots that illustrate something, press the button/icon that looks like a framed painting.
  9. Save your page.

When updating an existing page it is a good idea to fill in the “Edit summary” field, to give a brief explanation of what kind of change you applied to the page in question.

The Playground and Syntax

If you wish to try out editing features without messing up the site itself, you can do so at the playground.

Information about the formatting syntax used in this wiki is available here

Also see the Guidelines, which will tell you in brief form what to keep in mind when adding stuff to this site.
