Adding pages

To add a new page to the wiki, all you have to do is come up with a meaningful title and put it between [[double brackets]].

Then you can go ahead and click the question mark at the end of your new hyperlink, and the Wiki will give you a window for making the new page.

The page name can contain any character, except:

  • angle brackets (<>),
  • square brackets ([]),
  • curly brackets ({}),
  • double quotes ("),
  • pipe (|),
  • and hash sign (#) that is used for anchors.

If you wish to add documents with complex markup to the wiki, you might be better off providing a URL to it than trying to add the text of the document here, like so:

The Wiki does not support most HTML tags, only the simplest. See TextFormattingRules. <tags>They will just render like text.</tags> Wiki is meant to be as simple as possible to encourage use.

Note that there is a feature that your system administrator can enable to allow embedded HTML, but there are security risks involved.

Removing pages

Removing a page will clear all it versions. The history of the page will still be visible and the removal will appear in the RecentChanges. It will be possible to restore the page by creating a new version; in that case, all previous versions will be restored.

You must be logged as administrator to be able to remove a page.

Purging pages

Purging a page will delete it with all its versions without any possibility to restore it. Purging will not appear in the RecentChanges.

You must be logged as administrator to be able to purge a page.
