USING YOUR WIKI
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.
