How to create and edit a page

Adding and editing information on existing pages, and creating new pages, is TWiki's main function.

  • To modify a topic, click the [Edit] link at the bottom left of every page. An editing window appears. Type away. Use the GoodStyle and TextFormattingRules links to get pop-up window help.
    • Click [Preview Changes] to see how your edit looks.
    • Click [Save Changes] to save.

  • To add a new page, the simplest way is to type a new WikiName on an existing page. When the page is saved, the new name will appear highlighted, with a ? at the end: click the ? and a new edit window appears. Enter, preview and save as usual. The new page now exists.

How to attach files and use other features

The color-coded control strip at the bottom of every page displays a series of links, including [Attach] (for attachments), [Ref-by] (to display referring pages), and [More], which opens a new screen of additional controls).

  • Most controls are self-explanatory, and also include explanatory text and help links.
  • Experiment. You can always cancel or go Back whenever you like.
  • Get in-depth info from the complete documentation, including the User's Guide and Reference Manual.

You can now rename, move and delete individual topics from your browser. All three options are available by clicking More on the control strip at the bottom of every page. Access to one or more of these three options, for a topic, a web or an entire site, may be available to administrators only. In any case, all three are similar and extremely self-explanatory.
