Overview

This page explains the process for adding a new page to the IAIA Wiki and editing the content on a page.

Tips for the most common formatting

If you are pasting text from another document, you will notice that the formatting does not transfer. You can use the formatting buttons in the WikiMarkup window, or below are some of the more common formatting functions if you'd like to enter them directly:

  • Bullets: Begin each line with '*'
  • Hyperlink: Enclose in brackets, as in [http://www.iaia.org]
  • Italics: Two ' marks, as in ''Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal''
  • Bold: Three ' marks, as in '''Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal'''
  • Indent: Use one colon (:) at the beginning of a line for one indent, two colons (::) for two indentions, etc.

Adding a New Page

  1. Click the "Create a new page" link on the left side of the page.
  2. Provide a page name in lower caps. This is a shortened version of the page title which is used as an identifier when referencing the page within the Wiki.
  3. Provide a page title.
  4. We have a created an initial template for use called "General Page Template." This contains a list of possible headings and can be used for most top level pages. (However, you are not required to use all headings, and you may create your own.)
    1. Click "Content Templates."
    2. Select General Page Template from the list.
    3. Click "Use Template."
    4. Begin typing beneath the respective headings. You can add additional headings and content if you would like. They will be added to the table of contents automatically.
    5. Note that the definition is typically placed at the top of the page, before the first heading.
    6. After adding your content, click the "Save" button.
  5. Because the wiki process is somewhat new for IAIA, we have a review and screening procedure so your addition or changes will not be active immediately. Upon initial screening, your content will be published.

Editing a Page

  1. Browse to the page you will be editing.
  2. Click the "Edit" link next to the section you want to edit or click the "Edit this Page" link near the top of the page.
  3. Complete your changes and click "Save."
  4. Because the wiki process is somewhat new for IAIA, we have a review and screening procedure so your addition or changes will not be active immediately. Upon initial screening, your content will be published.
