Welcome, TWikiGuest!

Welcome to TWiki! This is a TWikiSite (pronounced twee-kee site), a meeting place to work on common interests. Anyone can contribute using any web browser. TWiki looks like a normal web site... except that it encourages contribution and editing of pages, questions, answers, comments, updates, etc.

"Wiki" systems are fundamentally editable web pages. It's a fun and useful way of communicating asynchronously over the web for many existing intranet and public Internet sites. TWiki is simple to learn and use. It aims to provide a transparent way for you to publish and exchange your ideas with others over the web.

What's in a TWiki?

Some things to do

  • Browse. This is a site like other sites. Read and follow interesting links.
  • Write. Speak your mind! From your browser you can change or add to anything you see in a TWiki topic. Modify content with an easy to use WYSIWYG editor.
  • Experiment. Visit the Sandbox web and create as many topics as you like.
  • Organize. You can learn to use TWikiForms and formatted searches with SQL-like queries to include topic information - for example, classify pages by subject, status, or date.
  • Learn more. Some good places to start:
    • TWikiTutorial is a 20-minute tour of TWiki essentials.
    • ATasteOfTWiki is a short introduction training course for beginners.
    • WikiReferences links to selected articles and books about wiki technology and online collaboration.
    • WikiSyntax - simple wiki syntax for those using raw edit instead of WYSIWYG editor
    • GoodStyle - recommendations for edits

Some basics

Editing a topic

  • Click Edit at the top or bottom of any topic and make your changes.
    Note: Don't worry if you make a mistake. Everything is version controlled, you can easily go back in time.
  • Click Save - you've now updated the topic!

Creating a new topic

  • See a red-colored WikiWord? That means that there's no topic yet for that NewWikiWord75668. Simply click on the red-link to create a topic with that name. Add your content and save. Done!
  • To create your own topic, invent a BrandNewWikiWord name and put it into an existing topic. Click on the red-link of BrandNewWikiWord to create the topic.

Viewing the history of a topic

  • Click History at the bottom of a topic.

Attaching files and images

  • Click Attach to upload and attach any type of file.
  • When attaching an image file (.gif, .png, .jpg), check the "link" checkbox to embed the image into the topic. Edit the topic to move/resize the image.

Embedding objects

  • Raw edit a topic and paste YouTube videos, Twitter feeds and other objects.
