I would like to get a crash course in how to use the wiki correct, so I can post my own builds and perhaps do some maintenance along with it.
So, if anyone can write me a "crash course in how to post in wiki for dummies vol.1" it would be appreciated.
Oki, here we go:
1. Go to HGWki, link is on top of this forum, or here: wiki.hgweb.org/wiki/Main_Page
2. Create an acount, right top corner of HGwiki
3. Log in with that account
4. Go the the page you want to edit
5. Type on edit on top of the text or on the right after every chapter. Here you see the souce code that generates the text.
Best is just to see which code generates what. Try to make some changes...below are to imortant buttons: Save Page AND Show Preview. The trick is to only click on show preview and whatch the result. If you are satisfied, then insert a small text in the field "summary" what you did and press save page. Thats it.
It's just learning by doing.
And don't be too much worried that you could damage something: There is allways the option to restore a former version of the page.
If you are looking for a page via search function, and that page does not exist, then you can click on "create this page" to make a total new page.
That is the simple "just do it" start. There might be billios of manuals somewhere, but I would just try it out.
