This page contains instructions for using the default wiki templates.

Summary[edit source]

This wiki contains a number of pre-built templates that make it much easier to create standard wiki pages. It will save having to type in all the headers and sections yourself.

Page types[edit source]

How to use[edit source]

Red link page (item 3)
Blue link page (item 5)

If you want to use one of the templates (and we recommend you do), follow these steps. For sake of example, let's call our new page MyNewPage:

  1. in the search bar, key in the name of the page you want to create, exactly as you want it to appear, then search for the page
  2. the search results will show you pages similar to the text you searched for
  3. if the page does NOT exist, you will see the phrase Create the page "MyNewPage" on this wiki! with your page name as a red link (see pic on right)
  4. click on the red link
  5. this will take you to a page called Creating MyNewPage that contains a number of blue links, one for each of the page types mentioned above (see pic on right)
  6. click the link that matches the page type you want to create
  7. scroll down the page and you'll see a standard editing window, already populated with the proper framework.
  8. fill out the page with your information and save

NOTE: If you don't have data for a particular section, leave the section header in place. The headers provide a standard look-and-feel framework for our pages. If you want to go back later and add information, then the structure will still be there.

Infobox information[edit source]

If you aren't sure what values to use in a page's infobox, review the appropriate documentation page. Here are links to some of the more common types:
