Getting started contributing content

The wiki allows you to edit any page by clicking the 'edit' tab.

To insert a link press the button with a link in the editor to get a [ [ <link name> ] ] tag (without spaces), put whatever name you want the page to have in there.

When you press the link for the first time you get the chance to create a page.

So when you add to the wiki, you first create a link to the page and then you add the page (not the other way around which is the normal way in most systems).

Use categories to sort items. Put Category tags at the end of the page.

For example (again, without spaces)

[ [Category:<some category> ] ] [ [ Category:<some other category> ] ]

To mark that one category is a subcategory of another, click on the link to go to your category page, and in there edit the category page itself to add a 'category' tag to where it should point.
