Introduction

To make editing pages easier for everyone, we have installed a visual editor by default.  This visual editor allows you to edit a wiki page much like you would a standard word processing document. Standard MediaWiki editing may also be used using the [[]] symbol on the edit tool bar or set as the default in your User Preferences.

Tips

  • Right-Clicking with the mouse is a shortcut  to insert Links or images. 
  • For Spell Correction use Ctrl-Right-Click.  
  • To insert a YouTube Video use an EmbedVideo command such as {{#ev:youtube|xxxxx}} with xxxxx changed to the Video ID.  (Note: this may be inserted using the VisualEditor but it is necessary to switch to MediaWiki Text Edit mode to modify it)
