The pages on this site are WikiWikiWeb ? pages, which means that pages can be created and edited by multiple authors. To edit a page, click the Edit link that exists somewhere on the page, usually in the header or footer. Some pages may be password-protected ?, depending on the system’s security policies, but many systems allow open editing of pages.

When editing a page, you see the markup text that describes the content of the page. The basic rules for page markup are fairly simple:

  1. Put a blank line between paragraphs
  2. To make a list, start each line with # for numbered (ordered) lists or * for bulleted (unordered) lists.
  3. To make a heading, start a line with two or more ! marks; !! is a subheading, and !!! is a sub-subheading.
  4. To emphasize text, enclose it in 2 or 3 single quotes; ''text'' for italics or '''text''' for bold.
  5. To make a link to another page, enclose the page’s name in double brackets; for example [[basic editing]] links to this page. Links to nonexistent pages ? are displayed specially, to invite others to create the page.
  6. To make a link to another site, type its address, such as http://www.example.com/ .

If you want to experiment with editing a page, try it on the WikiSandbox. You can edit the WikiSandbox without affecting anything important on this site. If you do edit other pages, it’s courteous to sign your contribution; using ~~~ effectively ‘signs’ the name that you provide in the Author field on the Page Edit form.
