Wiki notes tutorial
Revision as of 13:36, 8 December 2008 by Mchua
This is a tutorial on how to put notes on the wiki, from a meeting or otherwise. Please clean up and help make this better.
Go to a page - the [[OLPC Chicago]] page will work. Click the "edit" tab. Note - shorthand syntax: [[Page name]] ---> http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Page_name You'll see the text of the page become editable wiki markup - it should still be pretty readable, and you can see what things mark... == Headings == * lists * of * items, [http://lin.ks and link text], [[and wiki links]]. The latter is what you want to make. Find a good spot where you can list your link - perhaps in "past events" a good bullet point to add would be the meetup you just came from - and add a bullet point. * '''This text shows up in bold. It's good to put the date here.''' - description of what happened and where, and somewhere you can decide on a [[Good title for your wiki page]] and put it in double brackets. Then click the 'save' button. You'll see the text you just added with the stuff in [[double brackets]] now displayed as a link, in red. Click that. It should open up the edit page for a new wiki page - your page. Paste all your stuff there, and click "save." hint: Putting == headers == (double equals-signs) at the start of each topic is a good idea for making things easier to read. Also, enclosing text in <pre> tags makes the stuff inside preformatted, and is really good for code.
