User Documentation

Editing pages is the most important feature of the Wiki. The edit screen allows you to edit a page, preview the page as many times as you want and then save it. To edit pages you use a special syntax common to many Wiki systems that is called The Wiki Tag System , this will allow you to use bold text, italics, images and many other things in your pages. If you have the permission you may also use regular HTML code in your Wiki pages thus permitting a page to be anything you want to be. IF you have permission to use HTML you should be able to see a checkbox labeled Allow HTML at the bottom of the page. The checkbox is enabled by default, if you uncheck it then HTML tags will be removed when saving the page.

Remember that you can edit a page by doubleclicking on the page.

If enabled the page will be spellchecked and errors will be displayed in red when previewing the page.

Import and Export Page

This section can be used to replace the page by an imported page. Or to export all versions of this page to a text file. Note that if you want to export only the last version (currrent version) of the page the export button at the page bar should be used.

When importing versions in the imported dump will be added to the page history, old versions won't be lost. The last version in the imported dump will be made the current page version.

Upload picture

insert graphic
This box can be used to quickly add a picture to a Wiki page, the picture will be uploaded to img/wiki_up and displayed in the page using the No image specified. One of the following parameters must be set: fileId, randomGalleryId, fgalId, attId, id, or src. tag. By default pictures are added at the bottom of the page and you can then move the picture to any place in the page by moving the tag inserted for the picture. Use unique names that you can remember to prevent other users from overwriting your pictures. Once a pciture is uploaded it can be used in more that one page just by copying the tag auto-inserted by tiki when uploading a picture.
