Using this Wiki

From Savvy Humans Know Tech

This part of the site is a "Wiki" which means it's a documentation system that can be edited by everyone.

First you need to make an account using "Signup" at the top-right (this same account works on the Community section too). Then you can click the icon of a person (also top-right) to login.

Now on any page you can use the "Actions" dropdown to pick "Edit"

This Wiki is powered by a piece of Software called MediaWiki. So you can find answers to many questions you might have by Googling like "mediawiki bold text" or "mediawiki links". Otherwize in the cogs drop-down there is a "Help" link which takes you to the MediaWiki docs.

Help editing pages

Mediawiki uses an ugly format called "wiki markup" to write pages. These links have helpfull information for you:

Adding a new page

On MediaWiki you create a new page by making a link to it, in double square brackets. For example edit the Main Page and add an entry like:

* [[New page about y]]

Then save your edit and click the link you just made. It will now allow you to make your new page!
