Help:Editing

From CGW Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Hello! I see that you want to help Columbia Gadget Works by editing our wiki. Hopefully, this page will help to get you started.

The Basics

Our wiki is based on the MediaWiki software. You can utilize their documentation for editing basics, or you can skip right to their formatting reference.

Formatting and Standards

As the CGW Wiki is still pretty new, we have not come up with our own standards for different types of pages. So, if you're unsure of the best way to format your information, I'd encourage you to add the content now and worry about the formatting later. With that in mind, especially if you are new to editing wikis in general, I ask that you don't try to fight the basic MediaWiki format. Avoid adding custom HTML if you can. This will make any later reformatting and rearranging easier, if it is needed.
