Hi gang,

Thanks for helping to develop our SfGS wiki!

Here are a few quick thoughts to help orient you to our new wiki space:

  • The wiki is essentially a set of linked pages that everyone can edit for ease of information sharing.
  • Each of our SfGS pages has a name of the format:
SfGS page name
  • To edit a page, click on the "edit" tab at the top of the page of interest. This will take you to a text box where you can edit the page.
  • To link to an existing page (e.g. the SfGS funding sources), just add the following text:
   [[SfGS funding sources]] 
  • To make a new page, simply make a link to your new page in an existing page. Page links look like this:
  [[SfGS page name here]] 
  • If you want to link to a page (e.g. SfGS publications) but have the link name look different than the page name (e.g. Stuff we made), you can write the following:
 [[SfGS pubilcations| Stuff we made]] 
  • To make a word bold, add three apostrophes on each side of the word, as shown here:
 '''something'''
  • To make something italic, add two apostrophes on each side of the word, as shown here:
 ''something''
  • To add an html link, use the following format:
[http://your.website.org Link_name] 
  • To add an file (e.g. Schedule.doc) to a page (e.g. SfGS foo), do the following:
    • Click on the "upload file" link in the left hand toolbar
    • Follow instructions. Be sure to follow the instructions there.
    • In page SfGS foo, add the following code:
  [[Media: Schedule.doc]] 

With these few tricks, you should be able to do just about everything you'll need to do. For more information, try out the help link on the left navigation bar.
