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.

To begin editing pages:

  1. First create an account and confirm your account through e-mail
  2. Once confirmed, click the 'pencil' icon on any section or the 'edit' link at the top of the page
  3. Use the visual editor toolbar to add links, change font formatting, set hierarchy of headings, insert tables and media
  4. Save the page periodically so you don't lose your work and to see how your changes looks as you edit


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/deleted using the VisualEditor but it is necessary to switch to MediaWiki editing for modification)
  • Files and Images may be uploaded as inserted or by using the Upload file page on the leftside Tools Menu.
  • C Programs with syntax highlighting can be inserted with tags: <pre class="brush:c"> </pre>
  • C# Programs with syntax highlighting can be inserted with tags: <pre class="brush:csharp"> </pre>
