Editing a PageIf you have permissions to edit a page, an edit tab will appear along the top edge of the page after discussion. Clicking that link will open the entire contents of the page for editing.
If a page has sections, you can also choose to edit only a single section, which can make your life a lot easier if it's an especially large or complicated page. Edit links will appear on the right-side end of the line that divides sections.
After you are done editing, you can click the Save Page link. If you have only made very minor changes (fixed a typo or a formatting problem) you can also check the this is a minor edit box.
On the edit screen, there are buttons along the top to assist you with bold, italics, etc, or you can do these things manually using Wiki Markup language.
Basic Wiki Markup:
Creating A New PageCreating a new page is not very intuitive. The easiest way to do it is to create a link to the non-existent page by enclosing your page title inside double brackets on an existing page that you are editing. When you've saved that page, the link will appear red, which means the page doesn't exist yet. If you click on it, it will automatically take you to editing that page. Put some content in, save it, and voila! new page.
Some more helpful hints:
TablesTables are not well-handled by wiki software. You can take the time to learn the markup (see links below) or, if you have your data already conveniently stored in a spreadsheet (either Google Docs or MS Excel) you can use our online Converter. Use copy and paste to put your spreadsheet contents into the converter, and it will provide you with the wiki markup code you can then paste into your wiki page.
