How to open and use the editor

To edit pages, simply click on the edit button at the bottom of the page. This will open the editor at the bottom of the page you want to edit.

In the First box you can type in the title of your page. Below this is the main editing box and above it a set of buttons that will automatically insert preset code for specific functions.

How to open new pages

To create a new page you can create a link to an un-used name and then follow the link it gives to create a new page and edit it. Or just type in the name of the page you want to create in the box below.

How to create links to other pages

To create a link to a new page, use syntax: [[[new page name | text to display]]]. If this page does not currently exist you need to create it.

How to create and edit tables

If you click on the table wizard button (4th button in the second row) this opens a wizard that will create the basis for a table.

The code for a table in the editor is simple but can equally be quite awkward to use. Each row is a new line and each cell is surrounded by ||.
To create a header you can bold the contents of each cell by using the ~ symbol.

For example this is some code that will create a table:

||~ First Name ||~ Surname||
||George||Lungley||

this creates the table below:

First Name Surname
George Lungley
