US­ING YOUR WIKI

Maximum PC - - R&D -

Edit­ing a wiki is sim­plic­ity it­self, us­ing a very straight­for­ward markup lan­guage. Log in to your wiki with the cre­den­tials we set in step five, then click the “Edit” link, and type away, us­ing the string of but­tons at the top of the edit­ing box to for­mat text ap­pro­pri­ately, or add links to im­ages or files—up­load these us­ing the link in the left col­umn. If you want to cre­ate a new wiki page, make a link to it by sur­round­ing some text with [[dou­ble square brack­ets]], save your edit, and click the new red link to start edit­ing it.

There are, of course, a bunch of slightly more com­plex ways to or­ga­nize your pages, and the de­fault main page in­cludes a link to Me­di­aWiki’s own site, ex­plain­ing many of these. If you want to add ad­di­tional func­tion­al­ity be­yond flat pages—a cal­en­dar, per­haps—you need to in­stall an ex­ten­sion. This is usu­ally as easy as down­load­ing a file and adding a line to the Lo­calSet­tings.php file; check out www. me­di­awiki.org/ wiki/Cat­e­gory:Ex­ten­sions_ by_ cat­e­gory to see what’s avail­able.
