Quick Start Guide

In the early stages, most content will require creating a new page, and there might not be a category for your new idea. We are dropping all our new pages in The Topic Box and we are going to sort them as we get a more concrete idea on organization.

  1. Register for an account if you don't already have one.
  2. Go to The Topic Box by clicking the link, or clicking it in the sidebar on the left
  3. Click the Edit button in the Drop New Pages Links Here: section as shown here:
  4. Create a link for your new page. All you need is a quick name for your page enclosed inside double square brackets like this:
    You can see that the page name should have no spaces, but we use the underscore _ to stand in for spaces. You can also give your page link a prettier name optionally by doing it this way:
    [[pretty_example_page|Pretty Example Page]]
    The link is split into two parts by a vertical bar | – on the left side of the bar is the page_name, and on the right side is the text that will display on the saved page.
  5. Save the page:
  6. Click on your new link. It will appear red with a dashed underline, this means the page is empty:
  7. You will see a default message telling you the page is empty and to click on “Create this Page” – that button is on the right; it looks like a pencil with a + sign next to it:
  8. Edit the content of your page, and save it when you are done:
  9. The page is done!
