Wiki tutoring
« on: May 24, 2011, 10:27:33 PM »
I was looking into the wiki side of the sight and was wondering if there was a program/site that could clue me into how to set things up. I like the layout of some of the pages I looked at.

This page is a basic starter template that you can use to organize your page. It gives you an idea of how you would edit your page and how the formatting works.

A while back, I created a tutorial on how to set up your own wiki page, and included some tips for basic formatting.

If you need any help beyond that, Wikimedia has a page for frequent markup that is very concise and easy to scan through for what you need.

I am also available via IM if you have more specific questions. :)

Thankee.. I'm fairly savvy in a lot of things but Wiki coding (scripting/layout?) isn't among them. I'm learning a lot of things but there are some gaps in my learning curve in school.

I think if you have any experience or familiarity with coding, the stuff for the Wiki will come relatively easy. I have a light background in HTML and CSS, and after I got the hang of how the Wiki formatted, it was very easy for me to pick up.

My problem is I haven't done it in a long while and recently been 'cheating' by using WYSIWYG editors. :(

Shameful to admit but true.

One easy way -- how I learned wikis and HTML -- is to go to wiki page you like, click the edit tab, and look through the coding (with HTML, view -> page source).  :)
